Hey all !

I'm pretty new on this website and with AeroHive.

I"m a french student and I'm on an internship, be kind with my vocabulary, i'll try to explain the best I can ^^

So, in the company I am, I want to know if it's possible to have one AP that provides 2 SSIDs, so 2 different network (one for the private network of the company and the second for Orange, the internet provider).

Then, I want to isolate those networks with VLANs.

Each SSID is deliver by Wi-Fi and when someone want to connect on "Orange", he's redirected on the "Orange Network" and when someone want to connect on "Private network", he's redirected on the "private network".

I hope that i'm understand and i'll wait for your precious help :)

Absolutely no problem!

- Create 1 Network policy
- Inside create 2 SSID profiles with 2 different user profiles
- Configure each user profile with a different VLAN ID as desired (also assign different attribute values, which could make your life easier at a later stage)


Here VLAN 20 is used for the Orange network, and 1 is used for the private network.

Now make sure that all VLANs are tagged/untagged accordingly on your switch ports to all APs! In my example I have VLAN 1 as management and native VLAN for all APs (default settings), so the Private network will work straight away. But VLAN 20 has to be tagged on all switch ports for Access Points.

And, of course, your Router/Firewall needs to support all VLANs accordingly.

Hope this helps...
