We are using the RFS-4010 Controller running firmware version 5.9.2.3-003R. We have created a new SSID (Tappan) and it is not showing up for clients.



I have configured all of the settings in the Basic section:



and setup the security settings for it:



I also checked on the virtual interface for the controller and I have the new network setup for VLAN 200 and it is configured on the controller:



What would prevent the new SSID from being visible to clients? Thanks in advance for your assistance.

What you've done is just CREATE the WLAN and define its many operational characteristics.
You now need to specify which radios should use that WLAN Profile. This is a recurring theme in WiNG. You create profiles and policies....and then you have to specify that a device should actually use them.

Go into the AP Profile, interfaces, radios, mapping tab, and move the WLAN Profile over so that it's "mapped" to the radio.

Here are instructions on mapping the WLAN to the radios:

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
You guys are AWESOME!! Thanks for all of your help!
