Additional Information about OvrC Wi-Fi Management

Guest Networks

Guest SSIDs are not included in OvrC Wi-Fi Management at this time. An alternative solution to enable a guest SSID is to add a new network labeled Guest Wi-Fi and enable client isolation.

 

Guest SSIDs enabled on your AP on an existing site can be accessed by navigating to the individual AP under “Devices” in OvrC and configuring the individual guest SSID.

 

Deleting SSIDs

To delete an SSID, edit the “Wireless Network,” and un-select all access points assigned to this SSID. Select save.

 

Confirm, and apply.
