Hi Nurul,

Let's say you have vlan 10,20 and 30 and you want to create 3 ssid and assign them accordingly.

1. Firstly make sure that all your APS are connected to a trunk port.
2. Tag / Allow them with vlan 10,20,30.
3. Go to respective ssid >> under advance options >> access vlan >> enter respective vlan 10 or 20 or 30.

Hope this helps.
Ahamed.

You can also choose to tunnel the SSID's and egress from the controller which means you dont need to have trunk ports at the AP just at the controller port.

I would not suggest you to tunnel all the 3 ssid's. Henceforth you are directing all the traffic to the controller. Having APs serving their own client traffic would be much better than redirecting all the client traffic towards ZD1100. This would evtually hit the performance graph.

Ahamed.

It totally depends on what type of traffic the WLAN's are serving. Some traffic types are recommended to be tunnelled. Tunnelling the traffic is also more secure. Agreed tunnelling adds load to the controller but we are taking about 7 x AP's on a controller capable of supporting up to 50 AP's
