Primary Network Status: You can Enable or Disable your Primary Network through this parameter. Unless you have no wireless devices that connect using this network, you will want to leave this at its default setting of Enabled. Devices that connect through the Primary Network have complete access both to the Internet and to other devices on your local network. By contrast, devices that connect through the Guest Networks only have access to the Internet. They do not have access to other devices on your local network. Network Name (SSID)
Network Name (SSID): Motorola assigned your device a unique Wi-Fi Network Name (or SSID) at the factory. This name is displayed here.
If you want, you can change the name by entering the new name here. If you want to also change the Password, change that too, and then click the Save button. Network Name can be from 6 - 32 characters long. You can use the upper and lower case letters (a - z and A - Z), numbers (0 - 9) and special characters (e.g. $_/& etc.) except the single quote ' Security Key / Password Show Key
Security Key / Password: Motorola assigned your device a unique Wi-Fi Security Key (or Password) at the factory. You can check the Show Key checkbox to see the Security Key. If you want, you can change the Security Key by entering the new key here. If you want to change the SSID, too, make sure you have changed both the SSID and Password, and then click the Save button. Password can be from 8 - 63 characters long. You can use upper and lower case letters (a - z and A - Z), numbers (0 - 9) and special characters (e.g. $_/& etc.) except the single quote ' Closed Network Disabled Enabled
--> Channel Auto 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 Channel: There are multiple channels within the 2.4GHz radio band on which your device can operate. By default, your device is set to automatically find the best channel. Sometimes it helps to specify a particular channel in order to achieve the best performance. To do this, select a channel and click the Save button. Bandwidth 20 Mhz 40 Mhz Bandwidth: Your device can operate using either 20MHz or 40MHz bandwidth. 20MHz offers more robust performance, particularly in noisy environments with many competing wireless devices and networks. 40MHz offers higher throughput in environments with little to no interference. You can select either 20MHz or 40MHz. The default setting is 20MHz. Sideband for Control Channel Lower Upper Sideband for Control Channel: When 40MHz Bandwidth has been selected, Sideband for Control Channel lets you select whether the control channel must be chosen from the lower (1 - 7) or upper (5 - 11) range of channels. You must select a specific Channel, and you must set Bandwidth to 40MHz in order to un-gray-out Sideband for Control Channel and make changes. Grayed-out by default. Protected Management Frames Off Capable Required Protected Management Frames: When Enabled (Required), Protected Management Frames encrypts wireless control packets. Note that encrypting these packets may affect wireless performance in some environments. Disabled by default © 2015 Zoom Telephonics, Inc., an official licensee of Motorola Mobility.
