UAM based devices

This article describes installation and configuration steps for UAM based devices.

Using Start Hotspot Cloud WiFi unauthenticated clients will be forwarded to a web server and prompted for username and password.
The web server forwards the user credentials to Start Hotspot centralized database by means of web browser redirects.
On the Start Hotspot side, authentication requests are forwarded to a Radius server.
If authentication is successful the state of the client is changed to authenticated.
This authentication method is known as Universal Access Method (UAM).

In this guide, we will configure UAM settings on LigoWave router (LigoWave NFT 1N in this example), but these instructions can be applied to other supported UAM based router models.
Check list of supported devices.

Configuring parameters

Go  to the Settings panel Wireless Configuration section.
Under Network SSID click on configuration wheel button.
