Do do you enable guest mode on a Cisco Wireless LAN controller (4404)?

Auto AP


dot11 ssid Test

vlan 111
authentication open
guest-mode

Guest mode

If you want the access point to allow associations from client devices that do not specify an SSID in their configurations, you can set up a guest SSID. The access point includes the guest SSID in its beacon. The access point's default SSID, tsunami, is set to guest mode. However, to keep your network secure, you should disable the guest mode SSID on most access points.

I have this problem too.

On the controller just edit your WLAN and check the broadcast SSID box on the general tab.

Unfortunately, broadcast SSID doesn't solve this problem .

If I set Set Single Guest Mode SSID on autonomous access point, then client with old and cheap adapters like ralonk rt61 can connect, but if I disable all WLAN but one with broadcast SSID on 2106 rt61 client still can connects only rarely.

So- is there analog of Set Single Guest Mode SSID in wlan controllers?
