How do I add a ‘Staff’ SSID?

By default, Fusion WiFi routers do not have a staff SSID broadcasting.  Should you wish to activate this, you simply must apply the desired password and activate the network.

First, you must connect to the router via Winbox that you wish to connect to.

On the left-hand column, click ‘Wireless’.  A new window will appear.  The row in grey font is the staff network profile that requires activating.

Double click on the grey font row to see more detail on the network.  Click Wireless on the new window.  You will notice that the Security Profile is set to Secure, this must not be changed.

The SSID can be changed should you wish to.  Click Apply and OK on any changes you make.
