Apr 10th, 2008

We are using two WLCs e several LAPs, a WCS and an ACS radius.

The question: it is possible turn off the radio, automatically, and than turn on at determined time?

thanx for you support

The only way you can do this is to run some sort of script. SSH to the WLC and disable the radio on a particular AP. There is no function on the WLC to disable a radio. On ACS, you can set day's and time for a certain user policy, but it will not disable a radio.

Fella5 is correct, scripting is the way to go.

Another alternate is use time-based acls on an upstream device.

You could also look into the option of ethernet controlled power strips for the APs, but it is not very financially feasible. http://www.intelligentpowerstrips.com/

Tx for replay.

It is possible with some script disable the WLAN instead of the single radio of the APs.

There is a CLI command to change a WLAN status?

Like in the GUI:


Tab: General

field: Status

value: check/uncheck

You could try using and expect/tcl script to do a 'config wlan disable '

I'm not sure if a standard script would barf on the user login/password delay, but it is worth trying.

Also, I keep hearing rumours of an IOS like CLI for the controllers in an upcoming release, if that is the case, then scripting will be super easy.
