WLAN Configuration

URL-redirect AVP

Requires 0.7 or newer firmware With our URL-redirect AVP function, you can now configure a WLAN to redirect a user to a particular web page after 802.1X authentication has been successfully completed.  This web redirect can be configured to give the user either full or partial access to the network.  Use the URL-redirect function to...

QoS Override

Override the QoS Priority in the WLAN Configurations page by selecting Override QoS and choosing Wireless Access Class from the dropdown menu.   For QoS override, on downstream (AP->Client), we will use this as a WMM-AC prioritization ceiling. So if you have override set to Best Effort, anything higher than Best Effort will get into the...

Bridged Virtual Machine Support

By default Mist drops unknown DHCP responses to wireless clients, essentially the client must be directly associated to the AP for DHCP to be forwarded.  This will cause bridged virtual machines to fail DHCP.  Mist has a knob called enable wireless bridging which will allow bridged VMs to be able to connect to a Mist...

Apply Multiple WLANs to APs

We bulk edit WLANs together and assign them to the intended APs with just a single UI configuration change.  You can select the WLANs you wish to edit together and make a single change to be applied across all of them.  In addition to adding APs to WLANs, you can also add and remove labels....

SSID Scheduling

SSID Scheduling  – Multiple Time Ranges SSID Scheduling allows you to customize your WLAN by choosing the exact days and times to broadcast the SSID.  This scheduling function was limited to setting one time period per day, but starting now you may add multiple time ranges for each day.  An example use case for this...

Not all users see everything

Mist does not expose all functionality to all users.  Newer features might be exposed to “beta” users who have asked for access or need access.  There might be firmware dependencies. Security items such as WEP and TKIP have been superseded by more secure protocols and will only be exposed if a customer has a specific...

WLAN Status

Hidden SSID is supported – but not recommended! Radio Band – which band this SSID is published Client Inactivity Prevent unnecessary congestion of multiple clients by configuring an inactivity timer on your WLAN. Clients inactive for defined amount of time will be de-authenticated from the network and their state removed from the AP. Use this...

GEOFENCING

To enable geofenced WLANs, navigate to Network -> WLANs to create a new WLAN.  Scroll down to find the Geofence section where you can set the allowed RSSI range in dBm for clients devices.  This is usually done to try and make sure a user is within your facility or coverage area before offering them service.   Note: This...
