How can I block certain sites/types of traffic on specific WLAN? I would like to block FaceBook and YouTube on the student WLAN, but not the staff WLAN

Hello Greg,

If you have a URL filtering in your network, you can configure a WLAN with an specific VLAN with communication to this URL filtering server

A proxy might help under the same circumtances

There is no where in the AP or controller which allows you to filter traffic based on domain name or URL. You need to have a Webfiltering service like websense or try the cloud based service from open DNS. If you are not looking for granularity then openDNS works. Give it a shot and its easy to set it up --> http://www.opendns.com/enterprise-sec...
