Hi Niyas,

Good day,

You can go to Configuration tab, select Wireless, and create wlan from there.
After that, apply it to your AP radio as per guide below :

There are different possible ways...

1) attend the training and learn how the product works
https://www.extremenetworks.com/education/courses/eacw-1/

2) pay a Extreme partner to do the work for you

3) without prior experience - try & error with the user manual

The VX don't support tunnel traffic. You need local breakout for the wifi and configure all VLANs at the AP interface.

For basic wlan setup this might help:

Something else to look at:

In general:

1 - Create WLAN (above instructions)
2 - Map to vlan (VLANs have to be created first)
3 - Map to radio
4 - Make sure your country code is set in the RF-Domain

Just a note to the 5SSIDs, not sure whether they are all on every AP - if that is the case you should try to reduce the amount to a minimum.

Here a disussion about it.....
