In which wifi environment can Telraam work and in which environment doesn't it work?
Telraam can only connect to a WPA2-Personal (also known as WPA2-PSK) WiFi network.
This is the type of wifi network designed for home environments and small businesses.
The network only has a set password, no authentication infrastructure is required. For more information, click on the following link:
Networks that are not WPA2-PSK compliant (often these are corporate networks) may be able to be upgraded to still be compatible with Telraam.
To do this you can add a router or wifi access point, which must work with WPA2-PSK.
The setup of this additional equipment is best done by an IT person so that the equipment can also be connected to the rest of the network and there is internet connectivity.
Additional protections, such as MAC filters, may prevent Telraam from functioning properly.
If the existing network cannot or should not be modified, then a solution may be to use a small 4G router.
This 4G router then becomes the wifi access point that the abacus connects to.
Network compatible with Telraam:
- WPA2 security protocol
- with PSK (pre shared key = password)
- preferably only on the 2.4 GHz wifi band, with which the Telraam works with more stability.
Telraam incompatible with Telraam:
- open networks (networks without security)
- networks that require logging in with a landing page
- mesh networks
- eap networks like TelenetWifree or Proximus Public Wi-Fi (both examples in Belgium)
