12.04 Configuring Hotspot

On the Network setup page, you will see whether the MDA is connected to a WIFI network or is working as a WIFI-hotspot. If the MDA is connected to a WIFI network, disconnect from this network and the MDA will reconfigure itself to start acting as a WIFI hotspot. If you connect to a WIFI network again, WIFI-hotspot functionality will stop, the MDA can either be connected to a network (i.e. be a WIFI client), or can be a WIFI hotspot.

On the lower part of the Network setup page you have the possibility to change the name of the MDA on the network (default is mda), and to change the name of the WIFI hotspot network (default is mda-hotspot) and the wifi password of the hotspot (default is 12345678). You also have to provide the two-digit country code here (see chapter 7.03).

Note that there is no need to change the MDA name or hotspot name in case of a single MDA. Only if there are multiple MDA’s in your organisation, the MDA’s should not have the same names nor broadcast on the same hotspot SSID’s.
