edredi: Connecting to Wi-Fi

edredi has built-in Wi-Fi for connecting to a local wireless access point.


The easiest way to connect to Wi-Fi is by using a QrKey. To create a Wi-Fi QrKey, complete the following steps:

  1. Log-in to the edredi Portal and navigate to the 3-barred icon > QrKeys.
  2. Click WiFi to see the WiFi QrKey generator. 
  3. Select the type of network under Network Type and add the details. This will automatically generate a unique QrKey [QR code] for your Wi-Fi network. Note: You may need to contact your IT administrator to find out the correct values to use.
