Can you delay broadcasting the SSID when a WiNG AP reboots?

  • Shutdown on Mesh Point Loss
    • Select to enable the WLAN to shutdown if the access point’s connection to the mesh network is lost. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Shutdown on Primary Port Link Loss
    • Select to enable the WLAN to shutdown if the access point’s connection on its primary wired port is lost. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Shutdown on Unadoption
    • Select to enable the WLAN to shutdown if the access point is unadopted from its wireless controller. This setting is disabled by default.
  1. Refer to the Critical Resource Down settings to determine whether a WLAN auto shutdown is enabled when a defined critical resource goes offline:
  • Shutdown on Critical Resource Down
    • Select this option to automatically disable the WLAN when a defined critical resource goes offline. This setting is disabled by default.
  • Critical Resource Name
    • When enabled, enter a 127-character maximum critical resource name.This is the resource that must remain online to keep the selected  WLAN online.
  1. Time Based Access:To configure Time Based Access for this WLAN, click + Add Row and configure each of the following options:
  • Days
    • Select a day of the week to apply this access policy. Selecting All will apply the policy every day. Selecting weekends will apply the policy on Saturdays and Sundays only. Selecting weekdays will apply the policy on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday only. Selecting individual days of the week will apply the policy only on the selected day(s).
  • Start Time
    • This value sets the starting time the WLAN is activated. Use the spinner controls to select the hour and minute, in a 12h time format. Then use the radio button to choose AM or PM.
  • End Time
    • This value sets the ending time of day(s) the WLAN is disabled. Use the spinner controls to select the hour and minute, in a 12h time format. Then use the radio button to choose AM or PM.
