Configuring Wi-Fi

The Wi-Fi settings are short and to the point. You specify the SSID of the network, whether or not it’s hidden, its security type, and the password (for personal networks). If you specify Enterprise in the “Security Type” pop-up menu, you reveal many more options, such as several Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types; Authentication information; and Trust, which contains the certificates used to validate the authentication server for the network.

Notice that you can set up multiple networks here. So, if a user must travel between facilities—each with its own Wi-Fi network setup—you can populate his iOS device with the information for each network ahead of time, so his device just works. This also saves you from handing everyone the password to the wireless network, which is not only a good idea, but sometimes a regulatory requirement.
