How to verify that the access point does not broadcast the service set identifiers (SSIDs)


As long as you do not enable guest mode under the SSID Manager, the access point does not broadcast the SSID in its beacons. You can verify with a client and scan for SSIDs in order to make sure it is not listed.

In order to enable guest mode on an SSID, type this command on the access point in global configuration mode:

  Ap#dot11 ssid ssid-string

For more information about the access point, refer to the Cisco Aironet Access Point FAQ.
