How to start configuring a Guest Internet controller - Part 1

Setting up a WiFi service with Guest Internet controllers is easy and fast, unlike other products available in the market.

The Guest Internet configuration is user-friendly and only requires proceeding through the easy menus and buttons to complete the configuration of a WiFi service.

This short article shows the first few steps to start the configuration and you can go through yourself and see how it works by visiting the product demo at the link below.


Getting started with the Setup Wizard

When a Guest Internet controller is first installed, it is necessary to complete the "Setup Wizard" to add the information needed to get the WiFi service started. You can also choose the preferred language, English or Spanish.

In the "Setup Wizard" menu on the left as illustrated on the picture below, you will find the following tabs:

The "Introduction"

First, get started by clicking on the "Introduction" tab, and you will see a screen that looks like the illustration below. 


This wizard will only appear the first time this unit is switched on. It allows you to set up the login page displayed to your customers. It is then asked to complete the information that is requested. Select the preferred language, English or Spanish and click on the button “Test Internet Access” to proceed to the next step.

The "Test Internet Access"

The figure below will ask you to test the Internet access so you can proceed to the next step, which is the "Configure Hotspot".
