Use two WLANs with the same SSID

Another option, would be to use two WLANs with the same SSID (ie. WLAN1: FlexConnect WLAN2: mDNS). Currently the WLC prevents you from doing that.

When creating a WLAN with the

When creating a WLAN with the same SSID, follow these guidelines and requirements:

You must create a unique profile name for each WLAN.

When multiple WLANs with the same SSID get assigned to the same AP radio, you must have a unique Layer 2 security policy so that clients can safely select between them.

WLANs with the same SSID must have unique Layer 2 security policies so that clients can make a WLAN selection based on information advertised in beacon and probe responses. The available Layer 2 security policies are as follows:

None (open WLAN)

Static WEP or 802.1X


Note Because static WEP and 802.1X are both advertised by the same bit in beacon and probe responses, they cannot be differentiated by clients. Therefore, they cannot both be used by multiple WLANs with the same SSID.


CKIP

WPA/WPA2


Note Although WPA and WPA2 cannot be used by multiple WLANs with the same SSID, you can configure two WLANs with the same SSID with WPA/TKIP with PSK and WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) /TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) with 802.1X, respectively, or with WPA/TKIP with 802.1X or WPA/AES with 802.1X, respectively.
