Summary[edit | edit source]

Wireless Hotspots are essentially Wireless Access Points - they provide network and/or internet access to other Wi-Fi devices. The difference is that Hotspots are a lot more versatile when it comes to managing, monitoring and authenticating the wireless network's users. For example, while Wireless APs can be password protected, with Hotspots you can configure different users with different names, passwords, even data limits and data speeds and more. This chapter is an overview of the Wireless Hotspot function in RUTX11 routers. In Services > Hotspot > General tab first choose interface on which you want Hotspot to operate, press Add and after new hotspot instance appears click on Networking rutx manual edit button v1.png to start configuration.
