WLAN to work on specific time of day

Hi Experts,

I have ti SSIDs, 1 for VIPs and 1 for Staff.  The customer wants those users connecting to Staff SSID to have access on a certain period of time, say 2 hours in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoon.

What I did for the Staff SSID is have webauth and assign a username, password and duration in the WLC but then the lobby admin has to enter the username, password and duration everyday.  I can't think of any other way to do this. Can anyone of you experts suggest how I can do this?

Regards,

WLAN to work on specific time of day

You have several ways of doing this.  But this will all depend on your technical knowledge and skills: 

1.  Time-Based ACL -  You can create a time-based ACL to enable/disable the VLAN of the Staff SSID;

2.  WCS/NCS/CPI - From the network monitoring tool, you can also enable/disable the SSID based on time schedule.

The only way you can achieve what you want is either using 802.1x authentication using a radius server or specifying an acl and using time based access list. You can't do what you want with a WLC only.

Well, like Leo mentioned... If you have WCS/NCS or Prime you can too;)
