Wireless Manager

You can bring up the Wireless Manager from the tray icon:

WLAN-Symbol

You will need to have switched on the Wireless Manager under Network > LAN Interfaces > Wireless

  1. Click on the Wireless Tray Icon in the task bar and then on Manage wireless network connections in order to bring up the Wireless Manager:

    WiFi-Manager

  2. Search for available networks.
  3. Double-click on a network in the list in order to open the entry mask. If you are using the Wireless Manager for configuration, you only need to give the network key – this is considerably easier than using the Setup or the UMS for configuration:

    WLAN-Verbindung konfigurieren

    You can either permanently save the logon information or enter it each time you establish a connection to this network.

    Click on the key symbol in order to display the key phrase while you are typing.

  4. Click on the Connect network button in order to establish the previously configured connection:

    Verbindung zum WLAN aufbauen

    The tray icon will change and show the quality of the connection to the active network.

    Hidden networks appear in the Wireless Manager with the network name empty or can be defined using the Search for network button:

    Verstecktes Netzwerk

    In order to connect to a previously unknown hidden network, you must first enter the SSID before the access data are retrieved:

    Name des versteckten Netzwerks

    If you have configured the available connections, you will no longer need the Wireless Manager in order to establish a connection.

    Symbolleiste mit aktiver Verbindung

    In the context menu for the tray icon, all available networks are listed and can be brought up from here.

  5. The IGEL Setup shows all connections configured by the local user locally and in the UMS under Network > LAN Interfaces > Wireless > Other WLANs:

    Benutzerdefinierte WLAN-Verbindungen im IGEL Setup

    A Yes in the User-defined column means that you can change or delete this connection in the Wireless Manager. A connection that you have set up in the Wireless Manager is automatically user defined. Connections that are specified in the Setup or in the UMS can also be flagged as user defined. In most cases, however, this would not make much sense. After all, the end user should only be able to delete the connections that they themselves have set up, e.g. when traveling.
