Hello Everyone,

This is simple.Create a AP

This is simple.

Create a AP group and add the WLANs which need to be advertise by the AP in this group. Then add those two APs into this group.

Thanks Rasika,

Do I need to remove those two APs from the default WLAN that is presently assigned?

Or creating AP group and adding two APs into it will remove those two APs from default WLAN?

Please guide.

Thank you.

I went through this and it

I went through this and it looks like we can upload only one package to WLC. So we must zip all the pages into single .tar package and upload it. if we upload new .tar package, it'll replace the old one.

AM I CORRECT here?

Once you create the AP group,

Once you create the AP group, you have to add the WLAN with required interface map to that WLAN. So when you move AP from default ap-group to this new AP group, only configured WLAN under AP group will advertised by the AP belong to the new AP group.

If I create a new WLAN from

If I create a new WLAN from WLAN Tab in WLC, would it get advertised to all the APs?

I don't find any option in WLAN to attach it to specific AP.

When you create a wlan, that

When you create a wlan, that wlan is part of the default-group. The default-group is part of the AP Group for all access points unless you have Out of Box enabled. In order to pick and choose the SSIDs you want for a given AP or a group of APs, you need to create an AP Group, add the SSID's (wlan) and then add the AP or APs to that AP Group.

So when I add SSID to an AP Group, this SSID won't be visible to default AP Group?

It will. What you use ap

It will. What you use ap groups for is if you only want specific SSIDs on a specific ap or group of aps. You can have many ap groups but an ap can only belong to one ap group.

Depend on WLAN ID number as

Depend on WLAN ID number as well.

1. if WLAN ID number is greater than 16, then those SSID not visible in "default ap-group" & only in the APs in particular AP Group.

2. if WLAN ID number is lower than 16 then, by default it will advertise in APs in "default ap-grop". So if you add that WLAN to particular AP Group, then that WLAN advertised by APs in both AP groups (default & specific AP group)

It means that if I want a particular SSID to be visible to an AP Group and not the deault group, then I must keep WLAN ID > 16 and assign that WLAN to AP Group?

New Member

That's correct. I start my

That's correct. I start my WLAN ID's at 20 just so there are no WLAN's broadcasted on an AP that hasn't been added to a group.

Yes, that is correct.
