Product and Software: This article applies to Aruba Instant


Aruba Instant supports more than six SSIDs. If you enable the extended SSID option, you can create up to 16 SSIDs. After you enable this option, you must reboot the Instant Access Point (IAP).


Note: IAP-104, IAP-105, IAP-174, and IAP-175 support up to eight SSIDs. IAP-92, IAP-93, IAP-134, IAP-135, and RAP-3 support up to 16 SSIDs. In the Instant Cluster where you have mix of IAPs between the two different categories, Aruba recommended that you create no more than eight SSIDs.


To enable the extended SSID option, follow these steps:


1) In the upper right corner of the WebUI, click the Settings link.

2) Click the Show advanced options link.

3) On the Generaltab, select Enabled from the Extended SSID drop-down list.

4) Click OK.

5) Reboot the AP for the changes to take effect.


After you enable the option and reboot, the Wi-Fi link and mesh are disabled automatically.
