More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

Hello, the 861-W specification say it can support 10 SSIDs, but only 2 VLANs. Can someone please explain how this is possible. I tried to assign the same VLAN to two different SSIDs, but received an error message saying this was not possible.

Here's my test config

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

Anybody?

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

I'm pretty sure you don't need the bridge protocol ieee used at the end of your config. Also, can you post your router config? This looks properly configured, but there may be an issue on your router.

Make sure your Gigabit interface to the AP is configured for trunking.

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

The official word from Cisco Tech Support is as follows:

"After looking further into this issue, I’ve been able to determine that the documentation is unclear. You can have a maximum of 2 vlans, and 10 SSIDs. If you do not map the SSIDs to VLANs, the ISR can hold a total of 10 SSIDs, with only one broadcasted. If you map them to VLANs, however, you will be unable to have more than 2 SSIDs enabled on your router. So the functionality to create more than 2 working WLANs on your AP is not there on the 861W. "

I think that you're right about the "bridge protocol ieee" command. However, I think that it's the defualt bridge protocol. If I try to execute "no bridge protocol ieee", the sub-interface is deleted.

In any case, here's the router config I had been using:

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

That's crazy - I've never heard that before. Only 2 SSIDs? Have you tried just running 2 SSIDs? Does that work?

I don't see anything wrong with your config. What exactly happens with what you have configured? Do you see any of the SSIDs you have configured?

New Member

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

Yeah, and that fact that it has only two Vlans is not terribly well documented either.

I do see the three SSIDs; they are being broadcast and I can associate to all three. However, only two of them will pass data. Clients on the third one cannot connect to the DHCP server. The other two work fine.

Silver

Re: More than 2 SSIDs on 861-W

Well, I guess the issue can't be fixed then, if Cisco is saying that 2 SSIDs is your max.

So weird... I've still never heard of that before.
