SSID per computer lab
We recently purchased R700 APs for our computer laboratories, completely wire free. One AP will be installed per lab and an extra, if deemed necessary. A unique (hidden) SSID will be exclusively assigned per lab, that is, no computer, when transferred, can't connect to the SSID on the next computer lab relative to the MAC addresss of the attached Wi-Fi dongle. The dongle is capable to operate on 2.4 and 5 GHz frequencies.
We configured the link to operate on 5 GHz (only) and on different channels for CCI avoidance.
Question: Is the ZoneDirector capable of identifying and manage the authorized MAC address of the Wi-Fi dongle exclusively for the assigned AP? If not, do we need a AAA server for MAC recognition?
We moved on to deploy such plan on the first com lab and it turned out right.
The second com lab turned out different. We were only able to connect one PC. The rest didn't.
Question: Any factors that the rest of the PCs didn't connect knowing that these are assigned to one specific SSID?
We kept up on the deployment for the rest of the com labs yet still no linked to the AP.
Per AP was configured to allow 30 clients per lab.
Anyway, any enlightenment will be greatly appreciated.
