Re: Capsman - what SSID's should I see ?

looks like my only issue with this after a few days of testing is that the remote cap2n loses connection to Capsman after it reboots. I have to go into Wirelss/Cap/ disable (apply) and then enable to get it back online.

thanks for the fast reply! - OK so it looks like I did something wrong in my setup and ill restore and try a different tutorial. All I really want is two AP's one upstairs (a cap2n) and one downstairs - the RB2011 - if you have a reference tutorial I would be interested in checking it out.

When you deploy Capsman in say an RB2011 + a cap2n is the main Rb2011 wireles SSID also hidden? I kind of thought that I would see the main Wifi AP SSID and then the CAp2n via Capsman - is that incorrect?
