Hi, I've seen on the community that I am not the first one to order an access point on eBay thinking "Hey these Aerohive access points looks amazing! I will use one has a house Access Point! YAY!"

And then... Realize that I need more than just the access point to make it work...

My question is quite simple... I do have a DHCP server at home, I've managed to connect to my Aerohive AP350 with Putty (SSH)

HOW DO I CREATE AN SSID??

I typed:

SSID "Name"

Then

Show SSID

Great! My new SSID is created... but wait.. doesn't show up on any device... Whats next?

I also need to setup a Security Key... but how??


QUESTION 1: How do I setup an SSID and activate it?

QUESTION 2: How do I setup a Security Key using WPA2-PSK

Info about my setup:
My Aerohive is connected to a switch, I have a ClearOS server acting as my DHCP server
