Aironet Multiple SSID configuration

Greetings,

I have a configuration issue with an Aironet 1262N running in Autonomous mode. It is connected to a dot1q trunk port on a 3750G (POE version).  

I have attempted to configure a suite of SSIDs but only one SSID seems to be available - "tbmx".

Attached is the config (with some parts redacted).

The separate networks are required because we need to keep 4 "classes" of third-party wireless devices separate as they are not trusted and have special firewall and route configurations etc.

 

Grateful for any help - thanks in advance and in anticipation,

 

Marc

Re: Aironet Multiple SSID configuration

here is good document, looking at your config high level, i would suggest to re-visit your interface config again.

 

to simplyfy try 2 SSID fist and later add more as you required.

Re: Aironet Multiple SSID configuration

Hey BB!

 

Many thanks for the comment and suggestion - which lead me to the solution:

 

I don't believe that it was "interface definition" but you did only say that you examined the config at a high level - so fair enough. However, the good document you referred me to held the key to my problem...

 

The issue was that when you are configuring multiple SSIDs you must not setup your SSIDs in guest-mode but must declare mbssid guest-mode only.

Snip from my original config:

 

dot11 ssid tbmsc
   vlan 6
   authentication open 
   authentication key-management wpa version 2
   guest-mode <------ MUST NOT BE DECLARED
   mbssid guest-mode
   wpa-psk ascii 7 redacted

 

When guest-mode was removed multiple SSIDs became available.

Many thanks,

 

Marc

Re: Aironet Multiple SSID configuration

Glad all finally sorted, Some time it is hard to go line by line - that is the reason - i have suggested  to re-vist the config.

 

Thank you for the feedback and solution.
