Setup for Managed Institutions

Managed institutions are businesses located within a larger organization like a mall or museum.

Network Setup

Managed Institutions often already have a network in place. Extra steps may be required to get your network to play nice.

Direct Connection (Ethernet)

Some businesses have ethernet ports built in to their property that connect them to the existing network. Ask property management if your business is wired up.

1 Set up your router near your countertop.

2 Run an ethernet cable from the wall-port to the yellow port on the router.


3 Connect your iPad to the router’s WiFi network.

Wireless Connection (WiFi as WAN)

If your institution offers WiFi internet for businesses, use the WN2500RP Wireless Range Extender so you can get Internet access while keeping your personal business network.

1 Set up the WN2500RP Wireless Range Extender to repeat the WiFi connection.

2 Connect your iPad to the extender’s WiFi network.

When in Doubt…

Speak with your establishment’s IT professional – institutions such as hospitals and malls often have advanced security requiring on-site assistance for setup.
