Ok so how do you actually turn the radio OFF not just remove an SSID?

So I've read probably 25 threads on this.... most say "hey just turn the wlan group to off" or "click edit and "uncheck enable on this AP" but neither of them appear to actually turn the radio OFF (they do stop the SSID broadcast). The controller still shows traffic instead of "off" on 2.4GHz and I know I have seen when provisioning some AP's an "OFF" indicator on a band so what gives? Am I missing something LOL

 

Help! Man Happy

Did you apply the changes after you made them and then the AP needs to reprovision. Post your controller and firmware revisions for the products you are having issue for.

 

This is PER AP so if you have more than one you need to do a group config edit.


Set wifi group to OFF
Queue changes, 
then scroll to the bottom and apply

if you have to you can go to the device/config/ provision to force a reprovision

 

Just tested it here at my office and it worked

I could not find this option until I upgraded my controller to the lates firmware.  Be sure you update both the controller and AP firmware

  1. Go to AP Properties (click on AP in device view in controller)
  2. Click the Config-tab
  3. Scroll down and expand MANAGE DEVICE
  4. Click button Disable under the section DISABLE THIS DEVICE
