AP name should be added to Probe Response (not only to Beacon)

In order to print the AP name in tools like WiFi Explorer or WiFi Signal (www.adriangranados.com) the AP name should also be added to the Probe Responses (like Cisco does), so it's not necessary to use the passive scan mode.

Hi,

 

that is already implemented "Advertise AP Name" in the SSID Profile.

Well, the APs and ArubaOS seem to disagree with you. The checkbox you mention (or the config entry representing it) DOES in fact broadcast the AP name in the beacon, but NOT in the probe response.
