Re: Virtual APs

I suggest you read up on each topic (links below), but in summary.


AP - the physical AP

Virtual AP - The profile thta encompasses the SSID and AAA profiles as well as other settings.  This is what is applied to the AP Group

VLAN Pools - Assigned to Virtual APs or User Roles, VLAN pools allow you to put clients on the same virtual AP onto different VLANs.
