Setting Wi-Fi Parameters

Setting Wi-Fi Parameters

To use your endpoint to implement video communication over a Wi-Fi network, configure the Wi-Fi settings.


  1. Choose System Settings > Network and click the Wi-Fi tab.
  2. Set the Wi-Fi parameters.
    • To set your endpoint to Wi-Fi client mode, perform the following steps:
      1. Set Wi-Fi Client to Enable.

        According to the selected Wi-Fi mode, your endpoint automatically scans for available wireless routers and lists the found wireless routers under WLAN Networks.

      2. If you need to set a static IP address for your endpoint, set Connection type, network mode parameters listed in Table 1-23.
        Table 1-23  Network mode parameters




        Connection type

        Specifies the mode in which the endpoint obtains an IP address.

        • Static IP: The network administrator assigns an IP address to the endpoint. If you select this option, you must also set IP address, Subnet mask, and Gateway address.
        • Dynamic IP: The endpoint automatically obtains an IP address over the Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). If you select this option, a DHCP server must be available on the network.

        The default value is Dynamic IP.

        Select Dynamic IP unless special network requirements are imposed.

        IP address

        Specifies the IP address for the endpoint to connect to a WLAN access point to implement communication.

        No default value is set for this parameter.

        This IP address and the IP address of the WLAN access point must be on the same network segment. For example: if the IP address of the WLAN access point is and its subnet mask is, you must set Local IP address to 192.168.1.X. X can be any integer ranging from 0 to 255 except 100.

        Subnet mask

        Specifies the subnet mask for the endpoint IP address. A subnet mask divides the IP address into a network address and a host address.

        No default value is set for this parameter.

        Gateway address

        Specifies the gateway address that corresponds to the endpoint IP address.

        No default value is set for this parameter.

      3. Under WLAN Networks, select the wireless router to connect to and click Connect.
        If the wireless router you want to connect to is not listed, select Others, click Connect, and manually add the router.
      4. When prompted, set the authentication parameters listed in Table 1-24.
        Table 1-24  Authentication parameters



        Common authentication mode

        Security Key or Password

        Set this parameter if the authentication mode of the connected wireless router is set to WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, or WEP.

        Obtain the value from the wireless router administrator.

        802.1x authentication mode

        EAP method

        Consult the wireless router administrator about the detailed settings.

        The authentication mode can be certificate authentication or password authentication.

        If certificate authentication is used, import a wireless certificate (with the prefix of 802.1x) that matches the settings of Identity. For details about how to import a certificate, see Importing Server and CA Certificates.

        If password authentication is used, set Identity and Password.

        Phase 2 authentication

        CA certificate

        User certificate



      5. Click OK.

        When your endpoint is connected to the wireless router, the status of the router is connected.

    • To set your endpoint to Wi-Fi Hotspot mode and enable it to provide router functions, perform the following steps:
      1. Click Whitelist and select Enable. Then you can perform the following operations:
        • Click Add, enter the MAC address of the device that is to connect to this hotspot, and click OK.
        • Select a device and click Delete. In the dialog box that is displayed, click OK.
        Only the device (for example, a tablet or a PC) in the whitelist is allowed to connect to this hotspot.
      2. Set the parameters under Settings listed in Table 1-25.
        Table 1-25  Wi-Fi hotspot parameters




        SSID number

        Specifies the name of the Wi-Fi network to which your endpoint connects.

        • The default value for the Box 500 is HUAWEI Box 500_wifi_ap_digits.
        • The default value for the Box 700 is HUAWEI Box 700_wifi_ap_digits.
        • The default value for the Box 900 is HUAWEI Box 900_wifi_ap_Random number.

        The value is a string of 1 to 32 characters, consisting of digits, letters, and special characters, such as @ # %.

        Access via password

        Specifies whether a password is required for other devices to connect to the Wi-Fi hotspot of the endpoint.
        If Access via password is set to Enable, you need to set Identity authentication mode, Encryption mode, and Password.

        The default value is Enable.

        For security purposes, the Enable option is recommended.

        Identity authentication mode

        Specifies the identity authentication mode used on the Wi-Fi network.

        The default value is WPA2-PSK.

        Encryption mode

        Specifies the encryption method used on the Wi-Fi network. The required key types vary depending on your settings for this parameter.

        The default value is AES.


        Specifies the password required when other devices connect to your endpoint.

        No default value is set for this parameter.

        For security purposes, periodically change the password of the Wi-Fi hotspot in the endpoint.


        Specifies the channel to transmit data through Wi-Fi signals.

        If you select Auto, your endpoint automatically selects the optimal channel.

        The default value is Auto.

        Retain the default value.

        IP address

        Subnet mask

        Specify the IP address and subnet mask of your endpoint.

        • IP address:
        • Subnet mask:

        Start IP address

        End IP address

        Specify the IP address segment for devices connected to your endpoint.

        • Start IP address:
        • End IP address:
      3. Click Save.

        The settings take effect immediately. You can then check the MAC address, and IP address of the device connected to your endpoint.
