Configuring a Hidden WiFi Network

Like other devices, Beam cannot detect a hidden SSID. In order to configure a non-broadcast network, you must either unhide the network temporarily or add the network manually using the Beam interface.

Adding a Network

  1. Connect a USB keyboard to the Beam.
  2. Select WiFi Setup from the Device Settings menu.
  3. Press Ctrl+Shift+M to add a new network.
  4. Enter network name.
  5. Choose security type.
  6. Enter password if required.

Note: Hidden networks are only supported on Non-DFS channels.
