EX7000 security on a public wifi

Help! I have this unit onboard a boat in a marina with open WiFi, I guess.
In order to connect, you need to type in your slip number, although any number or letter works!
I have been unsuccessful in creating a password protected network because of the initial log on step.
So my onboard network is open.
Today I found that a smart home outlet can’t be configured with an open network.
Can anyone walk me through or point me to a solution?
Thx!

Hi @Projectboats,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

During the setup procedure, you will be given the option to modify the security settings of your extender as described on page 15 of the user manual on this link. That will be on item number 7.
