Allow access to Open SSID based on Device Type using DHCP Fingerprinting

Can we allow access to an Open SSID based on the device type using dhcp fingerprinting ?

 

what we want is to allow laptops to connect to a particular open ssid but not mobile devices.

 

dhcp fingerprinting is useful is identifying the device type but it only assigns a role to it  but it still uses up the DHCP pool.

 

any suggestions to preserve the DHCP pool on open ssid are welcome.

You can try to change them to a different VLAN.  Please look at the thread here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Unified-Wired-Wireless-Access/can-i-use-dhcp-finger-print-to-isolate-devices-in-a-specific/m-p/112051/highlight/true#M24033
