Wireless config on 2811 with hwic access point.

I am running 2811 (ios 12.4(9)T) router with a 4 port switch module (HWIC-4ESW-POE=) and wireless module (HWIC-AP-G-E=).

What i would like to do is set up the wireless access point to be on the same network as the switch. But for now i'm trying to set up the Access Point as its own network and i will worry about bridging the devices later.

I've got the following configuration from reading

interface Dot11Radio0/2/0

ip address


ssid WLAN

authentication open


speed basic-1.0 basic-2.0 basic-5.5 6.0 9.0 basic-11.0 12.0 18.0 24.0 36.0 48.0 54.0

station-role root


interface Vlan1

ip address

ip virtual-reassembly


Am i right in believing that the SSID isnt broadcast as default? How would i turn this on?

I have SDM v2.3.2 with wireless application installed so if that's easier to explain it's available.



Re: Wireless config on 2811 with hwic access point.

correct the SSID is not broadcast by default. the command you are looking for to turn it on is guest-mode. Issue this under the SSID on the DotRadio interface.
