Create Wi-Fi profile for Android Enterprise devices

In the Wi-Fi profile, you can set up your Wi-Fi connection and assign it to the users. Now the users don’t need to log on as the wireless network will be recognised.

  • First proceed as described here.
  • Select  Wi-Fi as the profile that you want to add. The following dia­log will open:

a screenshot of a web page with a number of settings.

Make the following settings:

  •  Profile name: Enter a name for the profile here.
  •  Network name (SSID): Enter the network name or device number (SSID) of the Wi-Fi hotspot here.
  •  Wi-Fi password: Enter the Wi-Fi password here. Then the user will not have to enter the password to access the wireless network.
  • Enable Auto Join if, after authenticating himself once, the user is always con­nected automatically to the wireless network provided here.
  • Select Hidden Network, if your wireless network is hidden. Then the user has to enter the SSID of the Wi-Fi hotspot to use the wireless network.
  •  WEP Key data: When using WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), enter the appro­priate WEP key here. You can enter up to four keys. One of these must be set to Default.
  •  Key management: Select here the recognized key management schemes.
    •  IEEE8021X: IEEE 802.1X using EAP authentication and (optionally) dynam­ically generated WEP keys.
    •  NONE: WPA is not used; plaintext or static WEP could be used.
    •  WPA EAP: WPA using EAP authentication.
    •  WPA PSK: WPA pre-shared key (requires preSharedKey to be specified).
Note! WPA EAP and WPS PSK are mutually exclusive. Therefore, be sure to uncheck one of them.
  •  Group ciphers: Find here a list of recognized Group ciphers.
    •  CCMP: AES in Counter mode with CBC-MAC [RFC 3610, IEEE 802.11i/D7.0] TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol [IEEE 802.11i/D7.0]
    •  WEP104: WEP104 = WEP with 104-bit key
    •  WEP40: WEP40 = WEP with 40-bit key (original 802.11)
  •  Protocols: Select here the recognized security protocols.
    •  RSN: WPA2/IEEE 802.11i
    •  WPA: WPA/IEEE 802.11i/D3.0
  •  Authentication algorithm: Select here the recognized IEEE 802.11 authenti­cation algorithms.
    •  LEAP: LEAP/Network EAP (only used with LEAP)
    •  Open: Open System authentication (required for WPA/WPA2)
    •  Shared: Shared Key authentication (required for WEP key)
  •  Pairwise ciphers: Select here the recognized pairwise ciphers for WPA.
    •  CCMP: AES in Counter mode with CBC-MAC [RFC 3610, IEEE 802.11i/D7.0]
    •  None: Use only Group keys (deprecated)
    •  TKIP: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol [IEEE 802.11i/D7.0]
  •  Show advanced settings: Enable this checkbox, if your Wi-Fi requires the con­figuration of other settings.

You can now assign this profile to the mobile device users. Note that, to do so, Wi-Fi must be enabled on the device.

Now you can distribute the newly created profile to users/groups/devices.

  • To do this, select the desired profile in the left-hand column of the management console and click Assign.
  • Now select the users, groups or devices to whom you want to assign this pro­file. 
Note! You can also assign the profiles under Administration→ Users or Groups.
