Click Save in the bottom left.

Select your WLAN network

Now, go to the first page, scroll down and click on Add WLAN.

Select the recently created WLAN and click Add.

Now, the Access Point will broadcast both networks. For Social WiFi we recommend deleting the default WLAN. Follow the image below.

Press Save.

Add the access points to Social WiFi panel

The setup of the controller is now finished. The last step is to add all access points to the Social WiFi platform.

Go to Inventory -> Wi-Fi AP Groups -> Default Enterprise. Copy the MAC Address from the "MAC Address' column.

Now, switch to Social WiFi Panel, go to Access Points tab, click the Add button and paste the MAC address. Click Create.

Test the solution

Connect with the WiFi network. You should see a login page. Go through the login process and, once finished, you should have internet access. You should see first connections and authorizations in the Social WiFi Panel’s statistics section.
