If we have two SSID configured on 1100 series Access Point is it possible to stop or hide broadcast of one SSID by "no guest-mode" command and allow broadcast of other SSID with guest-mode command?

Please share the experience.

Guest-mode can only be configured on one SSID.  If you wanted to broadcast multiple SSID's you would then need to use mbssid guest-mode.  With using only the guest-mode config only one SSID would be broadcast in the beacons.  The other SSID would not be broadcast in the beacons and would be seen when the client sends a probe request for that SSID.

Hi Dancampb,

Thanks for your repaly. In fact we have only two SSID configured and we need to hide one for them.

so the SSID which we need to hide will be configured as "no guest-mode" and other will be  broadcasted by default.
