The AP side configuration looks ok. If you are not able to see the network from the wireless client, it could be a client side issue. Are you using ACU or ADU for configuring the client?

I am not using the Aironet client or desktop. I have 802.11b/g users with Apple laptops, Apple Iphones, Windows PC Wireless clients, and Gaming consoles such as PS3/WII/Xbox. I am new to the Cisco wireless environment. It appears that I have a hidden SSID, which I will want later, but right now I want a broadcasted SSID.

It appears that the command "guest-mode" enables the broadcast of the SSID.
