I have two 5508 wireless controllers with two WLANS. One is public and SSID broadcasting is enabled. The other is our secured network and was configured with broadcasting disable. When looking at the controlling both through prime and on the controller itself, broadcasting is still not enabled, however the SSID is showing up in the available networks list on our computers. We haven't changed anything on the wireless network for quite a long time and this is a recent discovery. Anyone know how to remedy this situation?
When you creating the client machine wireless profile, if you list it as a hidden SSID, it will shown as available SSID as long as you are within the coverage of that SSID. It does not mean SSID is broadcasting.
If you check the available networks from a new device (where you haven't connect to this SSID before) you won't see the SSID which is hidden as available.
Your PCs that show the SSID mean they are configured for that WLAN. This is why you see it someone configure these clients for this WLAN.
If you have devices not seeing this its becuase they havent been configure for it.
As for the 'hidden' you need to mark this if your wlan is not broadcasting the SSID. No checky checky no worky worky ..
