Dot11 is Excell's managed Wi-Fi service. This article will help you to create a temporary guest user account.
Guests are time-limited visitors that can access the Internet but not your company network. You can create as many guests as needed provided that the total number of accounts does not exceed the allocated number of accounts. Guests can access the Internet from almost anywhere in the building.
How to create a Dot11 guest user account.
To get started you will need your administrator login credentials. These are the username and password that we sent to the nominated administrator user when you signed up for Dot11 Wi-Fi. If you don't have these please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 020 3176 1030.
You will also need the name, email address and mobile phone number of the person you wish to create an account for.
- Log in to the Wi-Fi admin portal at the Dot11 website.
- Click on ‘Manage Accounts’ - here you need to make sure you have at least one available user (see image below for where to find this information):
- Once you have checked you have some available users, hit the 'Create User Account' button. This will bring you to the following page:
Now you need to enter the user's details in the dialogue boxes supplied. Leave the password blank for the system to generate a secure password for that user.
We would also recommend leaving the Username checkbox ticked so that the username is the same as the user's email address.
To create a temporary guest account you should set the account to expire after 24 hours or 6 days in the box titled 'Access Required'.
- Once these details have been entered, hit the 'Create' button. The user will receive their logon details by SMS and by email, along with connection guides.
That's it - you're done! Now the user just needs to connect their devices to the Dot11 SSID wherever they see it and they will get super fast, super secure Wi-Fi. Your next step may be to head over to the third article in the series:
