VLAN SSID on one AP in Unleashed Network

  • Question

  • Acknowledged
I have a an Unleashed network setup with an SSID. I would like to add a second SSID on a separate VLAN but only have the SSID broadcast on one access point. I couldn't see where this can be done on the web interface so I'm not sure if this is possible.

Thanks,

Lee.

You can use ap groups to accomplish this

Hi,

In the main menu, click to expand "WiFi Networks" menu, to reveal existing SSIDs.
Click Create to add new SSID. 
For VLAN assignment, click Advanced Options, and enter VLAN ID in Access VLAN.

HTH,
Thanks,
Karthik.

Hi Karthik,

Thanks for your reply. I do know how to create VLAN SSIDs. My question was can i have the specific SSID only broadcast on a specific access point.

Thanks,

Lee.

Hi Lee,

Yes, we can do it. We just need to create a WLAN group >> Add the SSID to that group >> Then go the Access Points >> Select the AP and click on Edit >> Under the WLAN group select the Group which has the SSID you want to broadcast.

Below is the link where I have mentioned on how to create the SSIDs to be broadcasted on 2.4 and 5 GHz. This is on the AP group level, but we can do this for the individual AP with the same login.

Hi Sanjay, Thanks for the info. I'm logged into the Unleashed master device and cant see where to create a WLAN Group or AP Group.

Hi Lee,

Sorry, we do not have option for Unleashed in the GUI. However, we can do this from the AP CLI.

By default all the APs will broadcast the SSIDs created under Wifi Networks.
We need to login to the AP (which you DO NOT want to broadcast the specific SSID).
And then turn off the specific SSID in broadcasting. 
Leave the AP which you want to broadcast the SSID.

CLI commands:
1. get wlan list ( will list out the WLANs broadcasting with their WLAN number).
2. set state <wlan number> down (example set state wlan32 down).

This will stop broadcasting that specific SSID on the AP and only the desired AP will broadcast it.

Hi Sunjay,

Thank you for you comment. Ive tried your instructions but when i connect to the master Unleashed AP CLI and enter those commands i get "The command is either unrecognized or incomplete."

If I connect to one of the member APs i get the following: "Command is not recognized: get wlan list"

I've looked at the CLI help and dont see 'get wlan' listed as a command.

Thank you

Hi Lee,

How many APs you have in this Unleashed network?

If you login to Unleashed master, it is a controller CLI, not AP. Refer below command and follow the same what Sanjay advised you before.

enable
#ap-mode

Run the rest of the commands in 'ap-mode' and all commands should work.

Hi Lee,

From Unleashed version 200.7 we support AP groups.

For example
Install AP in Cafeteria
Create an SSID for Cafeteria
Create an AP group for eg. Cafeteria-Group, select Cafeteria APs, select Cafeteria SSID, and other settings. as needed.
