By default the WiFi interface is disabled on RX300 and RX-RDP devices. After enabling the following parameters can be configured:

·         Enable WiFi interface – enables the interface when the check-box is selected and disables it otherwise.

·         Network name (SSID) – the Service Set Identifier (the name) of the WiFi network. The name can be selected from the list when the WiFi network broadcasts its SSID.

·         Hidden SSID – selecting this check-box allows manual specification of the Network name (SSID) for networks not broadcasting it.

·         IP configuration – DHCP or Static. With DHCP selected the IP address, network mask, the address of default gateway, the addresses of DNS servers, as well as the default DNS domain search suffix will be obtained from a DHCP server. With Static selected the above parameters can be specified manually.

·         Address – the static IP address.

·         Network mask – the static network mask.

·         Default gateway – the static default gateway.

The [Edit WiFi] button allows configuration of WiFi network security settings.

·         Open – the network is open and does not use any security nor encryption.

·         Personal – must be selected when the network uses Personal security. The network’s pre-shared Passphrase needs to be provided to connect to the WiFi network. The WiFi Protected Access (WPA) type and encryption type will be detected automatically.

·         Enterprise (802.1x) – needs to be selected to connect to an Enterprise WiFi network.

Following Enterprise WiFi settings can be configured:

·         Advanced security – the WiFi Protected Access (WPA) type selection: Auto, WPA, WPA2.

·         Encryption – the WiFi encryption to be used: Auto, TKIP, CCMP/AES.

·         Authentication method – the  user/client authentication method to be used: PEAP, TTLS, TLS.

·         User name – the name of the WiFi network user for PEAP, TTLS, or TLS authentication methods.

·         User password – the WiFi network user password for PEAP or TTLS authentication methods.

·         CA certificate – the Certification Authority certificate to be used for verifying the certificate of the Access Point.

·         Client certificate – the Client (PKCS #12) certificate of the WiFi user.

·         Private key password – the password for accessing the private key of the client certificate.

Hovering the mouse pointer over the icon displays current IP address of the WiFi interface, the WiFi network name (SSID) and signal strength.

·         Absent icon – WiFi interface is disabled.

·         Icon with green dot – Successful WiFi connection.

·         Icon with yellow dot – Connected to WiFi access point, but no IP address obtained from DHCP.
