Re: Guest wireless Network Questions need help ASAP plz.

Assuming your guest WLAN is open and your internal network has security, you can look at the SSID profiles to tell which is an open network and which isn't. 

 

Configuration > Advanced Services > All Profiles

 

Expand Wireless LAN then click on SSID Profiles.  Click on each profile to see what the 802.11 security is.

 

That is the best way that I can think of...

If you type "show ap essid" on the commandline, it will show what wireless networks are open and which ones are encrypted.

If the master does not have any APs broadcasting wireless, it will not return anything.  Try it on the local controller, instead.

one more thing .... im going through and some of these are showing open but knowing SSID are not showing up im guessing this command doesn't show hidding SSID's? and this is showing all SSID's not just Wireless networks used by Guests is there anything else you can think of trying???

It only shows SSIDs broadcast by APs on that controller.  It will show hidden SSIDs, as well.
