one SSID broadcasted on one AP but not on a second one

HI, I've searched now everywhere but cannot find a solution.

A customer has 5 SSID's configured and add a new AP on a different site. He want's the same SSID on the new AP but not broadcasted.

With AP groups it's not possible; I can enable or disable the"broadcast" under "WLAN's" --> SSID "Broadcast SSID"

To be sure, the same SSID's!

THX!!!

Regards

Stephan

Re: one SSID broadcasted on one AP but not on a second one

Just to be clear, the two SSIDs will be created the same, one will just have the broadcast enabled and the other will not have broadcasted enabled and the WLAN profile name will be different. Again, this will only work if your WLAN ID for one is 1-16 and the other 17 or higher.

You need to create another WLAN with a different profile name. Also make sure one of the WLAN IDs is <16 and the other >16. This will allow you to create another SSID with different settings, then you use AP Groups to define which SSID will be used on what AP's.

Layer 2 can be the same. The work around is using WLAN ID 1-16 and the other >16

the WLC will not allow you to configure 2 WLAN with same SSID and same L2 security

Here you go... two SSID's named GuestWiFI with different profile names and one WLAN ID using 6 and the other 17.  The SSID configuraiton is the same for both (layer 2 and 3), one is broadcasting and the other is not.
