Here, you will personalize the WiFi service to everyone. You can give different WiFi services to different people if necessary, such as remote workers and people streaming videos who need more bandwidth and better speed to enjoy the WiFi service with no interruptions.

The "Code type" option allows you to choose the type of code you want to generate (random, custom, description and MAC address). Select the number of WiFi access codes you want to generate in the option "Number of codes". Definte the expiration time of Internet access in the "Expiry time" option and in the "Users" option you can select how many people will use the WiFi access codes.

Set the limits you find necessary by going through the "Set Limits" and "Set Start" and "Import codes" to generate a list of codes from the options pre-selected during the configuration.

You can print it out the codes using a letter printer or using a Guest Internet GIS-TP1 printer. The WiFi access codes generated will remain active in the system until is used by somebody. Once the code is used, it is then deleted automatically from the system.

The "Hotspot availability"

In this section you will see the hotspot availability schedule. The hotspot schedule allows times to be set for Internet access. The message displayed to customers when access is blocked can be changed here. MAC addresses in the allowed list can always use the Internet.

This can be seen in the following illustration.

The "Change password"

Change the admin password in this section of the Guest Internet admin account. It is very important that the admin makes a note of the password and keep it somewhere safe. In case the password is lost, then the system will have to be reset to factory default.

A codes password can also be set, this will allow access to the code management interface without allowing access to the admin pages.
