Enabling Aironet IE worth it?

Is it good practice anymore to enable "Aironet IE" on the WLAN? I'm wondering if the additional information that that is beaconed out (AP hostname, etc) is worth it.

Re: Enabling Aironet IE worth it?

Since most new clients are CCX compliant I don't know if there is much value unless of course there is older clients in your environment. I would like to hear others input on this subject. Recent deployment documents don't state it as a requirement unless you deploy WG bridges.

I know this is an old post but i actually ran into an problem where having it checked on a WLAN caused an issue.

I had a Doctor who's IPAD seemed to be dropping off the guest wireless, So i created a test SSID with "aironet" IE turned off and he seems to be working fine.

Thanks for the insight Scott,

I believe the only item left in our hospital that would be considered old is an ekg cart with a very old wireless bridge.

So no real benefits having it on it would seem.

No not really unless that breaks the connection to that bridge.

Thanks,

You can, but its best to just open a new post so it doesn't get too confusing with older post, especially if its a different topic.

Thanks,
