I'm wondering how the 1242AG handles multiple SSIDs and the beacon frame. I read that it depends on the vendor how he implements the way an AP takes care of multiple SSIDs. My question:
If I have configured 3 SSIDs, and the beacon is set to 100 kusec, does the AP send 3 times a beacon frame for each SSID every 100 kusec or are all SSIDs in the same frame? I'm confused about the different approaches of the vendors.
Thank you for your excellent answer. Just one additional question to this topic. The beacon intervall set ist for every SSID the same. With 3 SSIDs I get 3 beacons at the same time, they are not time shifted or something that I can't configure?
That was exactly what I was looking for. Thank you very much!
I registered just to see how it works here and thought I could change my name in something that makes more sense later. Unfortunately I found out that I can't simply change it in my settings. (Or at least I was unable to find the right spot) So I guess I have to live with it.
@Scott: I was already setting up my testing equipment for sniffing the beacons and then Victor replied. But thank you too for your help.
While most reference the beacon interval at 100 us. Its really 102 us.
