When visitors to your building select the Guest Wi-Fi network they will be taken to a customized portal with your business name and logo before gaining access.

Setting up the Guest Portal

  1. Select Settings from top right of the home screen.
  2. Select Guest Wi-Fi.
  3. If the guest network was not already set up during the installation, you can enable and name the network from here.
    • Note: From this screen you can also limit guest Internet usage. This throttles the speed for guest access but does not limit data consumption.
  4. Once the network is enabled, select Set up guest login portal.

  5. In the Guest portal editor you can add your company logo, social media links, company website, and more. Additional options can be found under Business info, Login options, and Advanced from the bottom menu.
