Newbies Question - Configuring new SSID

We've bee using a 600 controller for about 6 months now and it was orginally installed by a 3rd party unfortunately as of yet we haven't been able to get any training on the kit so I'm now blindly trying to configure a new SSID.


I've used the wizard and configured a new VLAN and given the VLAN an IP address, I can ping the address from the network but none of the AP's are broadcasting the new SSID. The SSID is enabled and doesn't have hide SSID.


What have I missed in the config that I need to do to get the new SSID working?

When you used the wizard, you should have added the SSID to the AP group that the access points are in already, otherwise it will not broadcast.

Re: Newbies Question - Configuring new SSID

Did you provision the access points?


Is the SSID (aka Virtual AP Profile) applied to the default AP profile? Or did you create a new AP group?


Which AP model are you using? Some APs come in as unprovisioned, as opposed to automatically being provisioned in the default AP group.
