Configure WLAN Groups

Summary

WLAN Groups can control what SSIDs are serviced by what APs.

Question

How can I restrict which AP's broadcast specific SSIDs?

Customer Environment

ZoneDirector managed wireless network

Root Cause

You can't assign more than 27 SSIDs to any WLAN group.

Resolution

To restrict  broadcasting of WLANs on specific APs we can use the WLAN groups.

1. Create  WLAN group Under Configure > WLANs - WLAN Groups
2. Enter name and select the WLANs that are required to be broadcast (if you do not need them to broadcast uncheck them) and click OK. Please note that you can only check max of 27 SSIDs under each WLAN group.
3. Go to Configure > Access Points. Edit the required AP using its MAC address.
4. Look for WLAN Group with the drop down and you can select the WLAN group you had created and click Ok
5. If you want to assign this WLAN group to a specific AP group, you have to edit the AP group instead.

The Number of WLAN groups that can be created depends on the ZoneDirector Model.
