AP group vlan is so that you can define what interface a SSID will use, on a particular AP or group of AP.

So for example, you have 4 floors, and on each floor you want a separate VLAN, but the SAME SSID. You would create the four dynamic interfaces, then you go to AP Group VLAN config, and say SSID map to . You would create four groups, one for each floor, and each group has the respective mapping. Then on the AP, you define what group the AP belongs to.

ok, so each interface name in the drop down list is a vlan. I assume when these interface names were created that they were assigned a VLAN.

So I could kind of look at it like the drop down list houses a list of VLAN names instead of a number?

Look at it this way.... AP Groups allow you to have one SSID (TEST) mapped to multiple vlans. The purpose is if you like to keep a subnet at a /24 but have 2000 + users, AP Groups allow you to place AP's that will have ssis TEST on a certain vlan.

For example:

Floor 1 SSID Test

Interface Vlan 11

Vlan 11

Floor 2 SSID Test

Interface Vlan 12

Vlan 12

Floor 2 SSID Test

Interface Vlan 13

Vlan 13
