Well, this scheme works on autonomous.  However, with controller-based, it won't work.  You have but two choices:

1.  Create an extra SSID for the handheld devices to work.  This SSID is a non-broadcasting SSID;

2.  Leave this branch office as autonomous.

One more thing ... HANDHELD devices????  You sure?  Some handheld devices DO NOT LIKE non-broadcasting SSID.

Make sure you turn OFF "Aironet IE" .

AP group will select which WLAN is assigned to which AP , but the option ins the WLAN itself is either broadcast it or non-broadcast it.

Sorry.  I didn't read the last bit.

Ok, then create a second non-broadcasting SSID.

i need them to have the same name , so the handheld devices connects  back when it goes to office again , actually we used to do this through atonomous APs , but right now the company policy states that we'll use controllers and i wanna know if this can be acheived as well.

well , so i think i'll do that , leave the once which i need it broadcasting as atonomous , yes we're using handeld devices to do the barcode scanning and yes it can be linked to non-broadcatsing SSIDs.
