I hope this is an easy question. I am asking because I have very little ability in the realm of Internet and Security (I'm old :D)
Where I work a supervisor came to me saying that the wifi lost it's password and is letting anyone on it. We actually have 2 wifi areas, one called CO-Public and the other CO-Internal (I did not name them) each with a different password.
I looked into it and even restarted our EnGenius ENH202 WIRELESS ACCESS POINT / CLIENT BRIDGE. I tested CO-Public by going outside and trying to get my phone to log into it. The wifi asked for a password as it should. Now here is my question:
It is my understanding that when a PC (or phone) logs into the wifi, like I did with CO-Public that the password is remembered by the operating system on the PC (or phone). The supervisor is telling me that I can log into the ENH202 and set it so that it forces the user to put in the password every time. I have a feeling he is confusing the Connect Automatically checkbox with putting in the password.
Is he right that you can set the Wireless Access Point to force any user to put in the password or is this a function of the user's PC or phone?
