Resolution

The Service Set Indentifier (SSID) is a unique identifier that wireless networking devices use to establish and maintain wireless connectivity. Multiple Access Points (APs) on a network or sub-network can use the same SSIDs. SSIDs are case sensitive and can contain up to 32 alphanumeric characters. Do not include spaces in your SSIDs.

For more information on how to configure SSID, refer to the Default SSID Configuration section of Configuring Multiple SSIDs.

You can configure up to 16 SSIDs on an 1200 series AP and assign different configuration settings to each SSID. All the SSIDs are active at the same time. In other words, client devices can associate to the AP using any of the SSIDs. For more information, refer to the Configuring Multiple SSIDs section of the document.

For additional information, refer to these documents:

Note: When associating a handheld device with an AP running VxWorks firmware, there should be no special characters used in the SSID since it is not supported on the VxWorks platform.
