Broadcasting an SSID from specific APs in various groups

I need to broadcast an additinal AP from a selection of APs that span several groups, and assume the best weay to do this is the sonfigure AP Specific settings. 


When I add an AP into the AP Specific Settings list, does it essentially clear off any settings that it may have inherited from the group (basically removing it from the group) it was in. so I would have to add in all of the SSIDs from the group it was in, plus the additonal one?  Or do I just append the additonal SSID I want them tobroadcast?


I suppose the other option I have would be to regroup this collection of APs I need to broadcast the additnal SSID from into their own group.


Shame theres no ability to have some sort of layered grouping...

AP specific is the only way...  You are correct.


You just go into AP specific, Wireless LAN, Virtual AP and just add the Virtual AP of the SSID you want to add.  None of the other settings are changed.
