How can I enable wireless from a Instant AP 155 with out an uplink?

I am going to be using a RAP 155 (Instant OS version 6.4.0.2) in standalone mode to test a variety of wireless protocols in a variety of places. I wired Ethernet uplink is not practical. Using Wi-Fi as an uplink is also not practical due to location changes. I also don't have any 3G/4G cellular usb adapter. 

 

The Wireless profile is set with "Disable SSID on uplink Failure" to Unchecked.

In system setting > Show Advanced> Uplink,  "Unforce Uplink" is set to None.  

 

I have already configured the Wireless networks the way I want. I NEED to be able to run them without an uplink. 

 

Any sugestions?

Edit your SSID and go under Advanced Settings.  There is a setting for "Can be used without uplink" and make sure that is enabled.

Odd................it looks like the feature was re-named in the GUI but not in the CLI.

 

I enabled it via the CLI under the SSID profile

 

wlan ssid-profile employee
 enable
 work-without-uplink
 index 1
 type employee
 <truncated>
 max-clients-threshold 64

 

When I did that it enabled the "Disable SSID on link Failure" option in the GUI. Try enabling "Disable SSID on link failure" and try it again.

Well, That work. 

Probably a UI bug for the wrong wording. A Full days frustration all boils down to one checkbox that isn't worded right.
