Instance Method

initWithSSIDPrefix:passphrase:isWEP:

Creates a new hotspot configuration, identified by an SSID prefix string, for a protected WEP or WPA/WPA2 personal Wi-Fi network.

Declaration

- (instancetype)initWithSSIDPrefix:(NSString *)SSIDPrefix passphrase:(NSString *)passphrase isWEP:(BOOL)isWEP;

Parameters

ssidPrefix

A prefix string to match the SSID of a WPA/WPA2 enterprise Wi-Fi network. This value must be between 3 and 32 characters.

passphrase

The network’s passphrase credential: for WPA or WPA2 personal networks, 8-63 characters; for static 64-bit WEP, 10 hexadecimal digits; for static 128-bit WEP, 26 hexadecimal digits.

isWEP

If YES, the network is WEP Wi-Fi; otherwise it is a WPA or WPA2 personal Wi-Fi network.

Discussion

Use this initializer when you want to match a known SSID prefix, but don’t have a full SSID. If the system finds multiple Wi-Fi networks whose SSID string matches the given prefix, it selects the network with the greatest signal strength.
