By default Reeti creates an open access point named "Reeti-{Serialnumber}".

The graphical network configuration utility of Ubuntu 14.04 doesn't support acces-point configuration.
If you have modified the wifi configuration with this utility you have to manually restore the file /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ReetiAP with one of the examples below.

Default configuration

/etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ReetiAP
[connection]
id=reetiAP-XXXXXXX
uuid=1182eaa2-b113-4d15-990f-7121d9b822bc
type=802-11-wireless
autoconnect=false

[802-11-wireless]
ssid=reetiAP-15073041-test
mode=ap

[ipv4]
method=shared

[ipv6]
method=ignore


Add security to the access point

  1. open a terminal
  2. enter "sudo -s" to have root access
  3. enter "service network-manager stop"
  4. enter "nano /etc/NetworkManager/system-connections/ReetiAP" and modifiy the file as follows :

    [connection]
    id=reetiAP-XXXXXXX
    uuid=1182eaa2-b113-4d15-990f-7121d9b822bc
    type=802-11-wireless
    autoconnect=false
    
    [802-11-wireless]
    ssid=reetiAP-15073041-test
    mode=ap
    security=802-11-wireless-security
    
    [802-11-wireless-security]
    key-mgmt=none
    auth-alg=open
    wep-key0=12345
    wep-key-type=1
    
    [ipv4]
    method=shared
    
    [ipv6]
    method=ignore
    
    

    For WEP security, the WiFi passphrase should be exactly 5 characters.

  5. restart the Reeti
