We installed 2 WAP551/561 in a doctor's office and did not set up a guest account for patients. We want to disable the SSID broadcast. The WAP551/561 User Guide says "Specify whether to allow the WAP device to broadcast the SSID in its beacon frames." I don't want to choose a Beacon Interval of 2 or 2000, I want it off.
Do I need to telnet into each WAP551/561 router and and write at the command line to conceal the SSID by sending out a Beacon frame with the SSID set to NULL? I've already tried setting the Beacon Interval to zero and clicked on Save. The Cisco panel said it was an invalid value.
Why is this feature not available for a Cisco Single Cluster when this option is a simple drop-down box with "Enable" or "Disable" in Keebox and Harris routers?
Do you have experience with another Cisco WAP Model where the user guide said "Specify whether to allow the WAP device to broadcast the SSID in its beacon frames" as the only hint as to how to turn off the SSID broadcast?
Have you turned off/disabled the SSID broadcast in a Cisco WAP before? Perhaps the procedures to turn off the SSID broadcast for a different type of Cisco WAP will work with the WAP551/561 model.
