How do I broadcast all SSID's from my Cisco 1231G access point?

I would like to broadcast both SSIDs configured on my 1231G.  However, whenever I add the guest-mode command to an SSID, the other SSID loses their "guest-mode".

Is there a way to configure the AP so that all SSIDs are broadcast?

Yes that's right. The whitepaper I included is also from 12.3(4)JA. Please upgrade to this if you want to use the MBSSID commands.
Cheers!

To make both SSIDs public you have to work with the command "mbssid"

like the following:

dot11 ssid TEST1
mbssid guest-mode

dot11 ssid TEST2
mbssid guest-mode

and then you have to enable mbssid globally on your radio-interface:

interface Dot11Radio0
mbssid
ssid TEST1
ssid TEST2

Thank you so much for the speedy response.  However, the solution posted is not working for me but I believe it might be related to my Cisco IOS version on this device.  It's only 12.2(13)JA4 and I don't seem to have the mbssid command available to me.

ok, not sure you will be able to do it then. Per the folowing document is says you must run Cisco IOS Release 12.3(4)JA or later.

Can you please upgrade the device to the latest version?
Also, you don't need the mbssid command at all. Just specify guest-mode to broadcast that SSID. Please note that you can only broadcast one SSID per radio interface.
Here is the Cisco reference to what you're trying to do:

Cheers! Let me know if that helps!
