Multiple SSID's on the same subnet?

Unanswered Question
Sep 29th, 2008

Can you have Multiple SSID's on the same subnet?

SSID1 authenticates clients via radius.

Our corporation bought printers with wireless cards that only support WPA-PSK so we created SSID2 for the printers. We can connect to both SSID's and ping from SSID1 to SSID2 but we can not perform other functions such as view the printer management interface with a browser. Should it be possibe to communicate between SSID1 and SSID2 on the same subnet?

I have this problem too.

Yes you should have no issue, but the only thing is that you are using a lower security method... so either you put them on different subnets so you can control the traffic via acl's or might as well use the same security method to make it easier. The fact that you can ping sounds like you should be able to http to the device.

What software version do you have on your WLC.

As much as I remember on early version peer to peer blocking was set globally in Controller > Global section.
