Hi experts,

At work i have 2 cisco wireless LAN controller connected to one switch and about 5 or more cisco access points. This is my first task as I started my new role as network support.

I do have the IP ADDRESS AND account access to the wireless controllers. This is a small branch office and they do have existing wireless SSID but it is only for network users and my task is to have another SSID created like guest and provide password.

I really need to know what steps shall i take to make this happen on the WIRELESS CONTROLLERS and let me know if you need any information and I will provide it.

Thanks,

What Cisco wireless controllers are you using?  I have experience with the 2521 where you can use the web interface which is probably the easiest way to create another wireless WLAN with a separate SSID.  WLANS - tab  go to creat new then click "go" button it should ask you the type, profile name, SSID and ID...numeric ( it simply takes the next number) so if you had 3 already set up this one will be 4.  It will ask a series of security policies questions (WEP, WPA2 etc).
