Jai, thank you for the advise, as soon as I added "guest-mode" I was able to see the SSID broadcasted, thank you.
A few more questions:
1) What is guest mode? Does that mean any user can see the SSID and authenticate without any password? This is what it seems like, is that correct?
2) Now, I would like to authenticate users with a password, does that mean I should remove "guest-mode"? I tried to remove "guest-mode" and add a password and I am no longer seeing the SSID broadcast. This is what I changed:
dot11 ssid testing123
wpa-psk ascii 7 14141B180F0B7B79777B6164
I was expecting to get an authentication prompt but I am not even seeing the SSID now.
3) How can I restrict specific users to specific vlans?
I know the basic wireless, but I need to know a little bit more.
I appreciate any assistance you can provide me with the above mentioned points.
The guest-mode SSID is used in beacon frames and response frames to probe requests that specify the empty or wildcard SSID. If no guest-mode SSID exists, the beacon contains no SSID and probe requests with the wildcard SSID are ignored. Disabling the guest mode makes the networks slightly more secure. Enabling the guest mode helps clients that passively scan (do not transmit) associate with the access point. It also allows clients configured without a SSID to associate.
WPA-PSK will prompt you for a key as soon as you try to connect to the SSID.
But for that either you need to broadcast the ssid or try maunally connection to the SSID.
