This is a very good example of WiFi SSID configuration and password in the ONTs; but what happens when you have 500 onts? changing the password manually would be very tiring.

Does anyone know what the default password for WirelessNet is? My laptop (Linux) refuses to connect via Ethernet cable and I don't know the WirelessNet password.

EDIT: just in case any wants to know, I found in an Arabic post the default password for WirelessNet is eeeeeeee and it actually worked.

So, hopefully one day that will help someone. :)
