How to create a Guest SSID in Enterasys controller C5210?


Userlevel 1
I need help in creating a Guest SSID in our network, so the user can only get on the internet. I also want them to have to login, or enter an email address. And do not broadcast the Guest SSID.
Can someone help me?

First steps are required to setup a guest portal. Do not change it to guest splash mode. The first video link i've posted describe how you could customize the login page.

Do you know where I can get more information? I'm getting a IP address conflict which is strange because it's a subnet that is not being used anywhere. This is so overly complicated. Sheesh.....

Hi Will,

were you able to solve the problem.
Could it be that you try to use the address 172.31.0.x - the controller uses 172.31.0.16/28 for internal services so you can't use that one.
