Define an Area Without WLAN Coverage

Hi all,

i have an Outdoor Area covered by Cisco Wireless LAN Solution (WCS,WLC,1550AP root and Mesh lightweight). I need to disable power transmission for some of these APs in the 2..4GHz.

I tried two possible way, but both are not working:

1) Set the power of 802.11g/g/n to 0. There is no such option (power can be set manually from 1 to 5 and, as per the documentation, each level is a reduction of 3dB.  Therefore, even if i put to the minimum, i cannot guarantee that there is no utilization of the 2.4GHz spectrum).

2) Define an AP group containing these APs and don't add any SSID. Is not possible because at least one SSID must be added on each AP group.

Can somebody advice a working solution/setting in AP/WLC/WCS that help me to avoid transmission in 2.4GHZ? Otherwise the only solution is to power them off, but is not the solution i'm looking for.

Thanks in advance.

I would think that in the ap configuration tab under configure, you can disable the radio itself.

Re: Define an Area Without WLAN Coverage

In order to be sure that i didn't misunderstand are you suggesting to go in WCS on:

Radio Detail :                                802.11b/g/n

Configure>  Access Points > "AP_NAME" > Radio Detail

and in Admin Status uncheck?

Please see the attached image.

Thanks for your reply.

yes, unchecking this option will bring 2.4ghz radio down on this ap. you can also globally disable 2.4 network from b/g radio page that disables 2.4 radio on all APs.

Yes... But I normally do that straight from the WLC not WCS. You can do it from WCS if you want.
