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.....

Check Radio config at AP level, if you do have one that means you are overriding the profile config and possibly the AP level Radio profile does not have the SSID associated to it.

Hello Niyas,

Here's are the most common reasons that SSID might not be broadcasting: https://gtacknowledge.extremenetworks.com/articles/Q_A/Why-aren-t-the-APs-broadcasting-the-WLAN-SSID

Go through the check list and make sure all adheres to best practices.

Also log into one of the APs and make sure that changes made on the controller have properly propagated to the AP.

Thank you,

Chris
