A group allows multiple IW devices to share the selected configuration settings. IW devices can be a member of one group, and all the IW devices in the group must be of the same Product ID. Any changes to the group settings will apply to all IW devices of the group, except for settings where Per Device is selected. The Per Device settings can be set on each IW device.
Passphrase parameter is configured through the group, since all IW devices should be set with the same passphrase.
IP Address is usually set as per device level, since all IW devices should have unique IP address to avoid duplicates.
