Configuration Management on your access points is supposed to be simple. When you use WiFi Manager. Yea..that is why we built it the way it is built.
- 1. We use common templates. That means, even if you have multiple-vendor access point models, you do not need to login to each and every access point interface and change settings there. One interface, multiple vendors.2. Credentials are important. AP Management is done via SNMP or/and Telnet/SSH. It is neccessary to put in the correct write community for SNMP and username and password for Telnet/SSH. If you use Enable Prompt and Password, you need to put in the appropriate values for them.3. Various parameters can be configured and reconfigured using WiFi Manager. Radio settings, security settings (WPA, WPA-PSK..), VLANs, access control lists etc.4. Multiple access points from different vendors can be configured at a time.
5. Configuration can be imported from a pre-configured AP and pushed onto multiple APs in a single shot.
6. WiFi Manager supports configuration on fat APs, wireless switches, wireless gateways and routers too.
7. WiFi Manager, today supports 85 models of APs. But configuration support is not there in 16 of them (due to lack of proper implementation of SNMP or Telnet/SSH). But still, 70 is not a bad number, eh?
8. WiFi Manager also upgrades firmware on your access points too. On multiples too!
9. WiFi Manager maintains the history of all your configuration changes, just in case.
Or 9 reasons why you should get WiFi Manager to manage your wireless configuration.
