Solwise WL-Smart-Inwall wifi security?


[link to this post]
 
http://www.thinkbroadband.com/news/i/6239.html

On the strength of this news item I invested in one of these. Although marketed by Solwise it is actually produced by www.airlinkwifi.com. There are no instructions in the box, merely photographs showing how to fit it in a wall. On the back of the socket is an ip address to access the web interface.
I may be being particularly stupid but nowhere on the web interface can I find a menu to set up wireless security. Wireless strength is excellent but unfortunately the network is not secured.
Can anyone tell me where I am going wrong?
Thanks,
Paul

Found http://trade.airlinkwifi.net/itemdoc/IN%20WALL%20POE... but just physical install. Says it does wep/wpa

Alas have not seen the web interface so cannot provide any pointers, will point your plight out to the folks at Solwise.

Thank you, Andrew but I have now found the menu. It is hidden under Virtual AP settings.
I find it frustrating that manufacturer's often do not include simple instructions with their products! Anyone without a bit of experience in setting up these things would have been lost.

Hi,

Thanks for the feedback. I am glad you got it sorted but you are quite right, there should be a quick start guide in with the unit. I will get this sorted, add one to the website and include one with future orders.

I am sorry for the inconvenience. I hadn't spotted there wasn't one in there.

cheers
Louise
