SSID availability: Muiltiple time ranges

Hi all,

at Wireless > Configure > SSID availability I can define time ranges für the SSID availability. It seems to be impossible to define multiple time ranges on one weekday, for example 9:00-11.00, 12:00-15:00. Is there any way to configure this? A workaround coud be firewall rules for specific clients or networks with according time ranges. But this feature is not supported.

The only workaround I am aware of is using the API to enable and disable the SSIDs. But this needs a computer running the script, and this means two different points of configuration.

 

Thank you for your advice

 

Peter

You're correct on both counts

- You can't define multiple time ranges in a schedule

- The only workaround available is disabling/enabling the SSID (either manually via dashboard or programmatically via API).

@pdeleuw If you need to have the SSID enabled for three different time windows then create the same SSID three times with the same setup and then schedule one to be available for each time slot.

Thank you, @cmr, interesting approach. This will work if you do not exceed the count of 15 SSIDs. A drawback maybe the monitoring. You have tree different SSIDs with the same name. How will this be presented in tools like Wireless Health? We will think about it.

 

Edit: This does not work. You cannot enable two SSIDs with the same name, even with different scheduling. So this approach does not work.
