Wi-Fi Settings

Change Wi-Fi network name (SSID)

You may change the network name (SSID). Type in a new SSID in the adequate field and click the button Change Wi-Fi settings. Starting with MoodleBox version 2.3.0, it is possible to enter SSIDs with specials characters such as emojis, including spaces.

Hide the Wi-Fi network

Starting with MoodleBox version 2.6.0, it is possible to hide the MoodleBox’s Wi-Fi network by checking the Hidden Wi-Fi Network box.

Warning

When the Wi-Fi network is hidden, it is difficult to know that a MoodleBox is active in the area. Only enable this option if you are sure of what you are doing, as users will probably have more trouble finding the MoodleBox.

Change Wi-Fi access point channel

To change the Wi-Fi channel of the wireless access point of the MoodleBox, select a channel number and click the button Change Wi-Fi settings.

Change Wi-Fi regulatory country of the access point (from version 2.5.0)

To change the Wi-Fi regulatory country of the MoodleBox wireless access point, select a country from the drop-down list and click the Change Wi-Fi settings button.

Info

Authorized Wi-Fi channels depend on the country of regulation. Depending on the country selected, some channels will no longer be available.

Remove Wi-Fi network password or change it

To enable a easier access of the Wi-Fi access point of the MoodleBox, it’s possible to allow its access without a password. To do this, uncheck the Wi-Fi network password protected checkbox. This can be rechecked at anytime.

It is also possible to change the password of the Wi-Fi access point of the MoodleBox. To do this, type in a new password in the adequate field. The password should be 8 to 63 characters long. If you fail to input a valid password, it will be reverted to the default password moodlebox.
