TABLE OF CONTENTS
With AirServer Connect Hardware you have two different options to allow your guests to connect and share content to AirServer.
You can use the internal AirServer Connect Wi-Fi Hotspot, or you can use your own Wi-Fi network.
If you do not have a personal Wi-Fi guest network, you can enable a Wi-Fi Hotspot in AirServer in order to allow your guests to connect and share content to AirServer without being connected to your network infrastructure.
You can only set a Passphrase for this guest network because the SSID will be the AirServer Name. The SSID and Password will be displayed on the home screen.
We recommend keeping the Password field empty as then the AirServer Connect will periodically generate or change the passphrase. That will prevent overloading of the built-in guest Wi-Fi as users that have previously used the guest Wi-Fi may reconnect to it automatically even though they are not using the AirServer Connect.
You can then select which type of access guests get to the building network through the guest network:
- None – Only allows guests to cast their screens to AirServer Connect, no internet access.
- Internet Only – Gives guest only access to cast to AirServer Connect and public internet.
- Internet + LAN – Gives the guest full access to the wired network. Note that access can be limited by your network administrators.
Your personal Wi-Fi infrastructure or guest network
NOTE: This option only allow you to show on-screen your own personal Wi-Fi SSID and Password.
In some cases, you might want to use your own Wi-Fi infrastructure or guest network.
If you already have a guest network in place and do not wish to use the built-in hotspot, you can enable the "Show your own guest network" under the Personalization Tab.
Then add your Wi-Fi access point SSID and Password and the QR code will update to reflect your Wi-Fi infrastructure instead of the built-in hotspot. If disabled, the QR code will revert to the built-in access point on the AirServer Connect.
The SSID and Password will be displayed on the home screen.
