Change the SSID on WLAN devices

6

Change the SSID on WLAN devices.
Command output on the CLI:
[HUAWEI]wlan
[HUAWEI-wlan-view]service-set name test
[HUAWEI-wlan-service-set-test]ssid huawei
If the SSID is in use and cannot be modified, unbind SSID invocation and change the SSID again.

Configure multiple SSIDs for a WLAN
Configure multiple SSIDs for a WLAN. One SSID indicates a wireless signal for users. All the ACs and APs can be configured with multiple SSIDs, that is, one device can send multiple radio signals. Configuration: 1. Add a new service set (New WLAN-BSS/WLAN-ESS interfaces must be added.), and configure parameters such as the SSID. 2. Invoke this service set in the AP radio. 3. A single radio can invoke multiple service sets. Different radios can invoke the same service set (applicable to the AC). Note: - Creating new wireless networks has no effect on existing networks. - Each service set can be configured with different parameters such as encryption and authentication. - Each service set maps one VLAN, namely, one address pool and one IP address segment. - Do not reuse the service set on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands when configuring multiple SSIDs for Fat APs.

Can SSIDs of WLANs be the same
You can configure the same SSID, but STAs usually identify it as the same network.

How to change the web password of WLAN devices
To change the web password of WLAN devices, perform the following steps: If the web login password is lost or you want to change the existing web login password, you can log in to the device using other methods, such as the console port or Telnet, and set the password again. 1. Log in to the device using other methods, such as the console port. 2. Change the user password. The following command output is an example that sets the user name to huawei and the new password to Huawei@123 in AAA authentication: [Huawei] aaa [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei password irreversible-cipher Huawei@123 [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei service-type http //Set the access type of huawei to HTTP. [Huawei-aaa] local-user huawei privilege level 15

Change the SSID on AR routers
SSIDs identify different wireless networks. When you search for available wireless networks on your laptop, the displayed wireless network names are SSIDs. Assume that you change the SSID of service set hw to company. When the AR router functions as the WLAN AP, the procedure for reconfiguring the SSID is as follows: When the AR router functions as the WLAN AC, the procedure for reconfiguring the SSID is as follows: [Router]wlan ac //Enter the WLAN view. [Router-wlan-view]service-set name hw //Enter the service set view. [Router-wlan-service-set-hw]undo ssid //Delete the original SSID. [Router-wlan-service-set-hw]ssid company //Reconfigure the SSID. [Router-wlan-service-set-hw]quit //Return to the WLAN view. [Router-wlan-view]commit all //Commit the configuration so that the modified content can be delivered to the Fit AP. Warning: If the system displays the message indicating that the SSID is in use and cannot be changed, you need to unbind the service set to change the SSID.

Changing link types of interfaces on WLAN devices
You can change the type of an interface on a WLAN device as follows: - Change an access interface to a trunk or hybrid interface. [HUAWEI]interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]undo port default vlan //Restore the default VLAN of the interface to VLAN 1. Run the display this command to check whether the interface has been added to other VLANs. If so, run the undo command delete the configurations. Change the interface type based on service requirements. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type hybrid // Set the interface type to hybrid. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type trunk //Set the interface type to trunk. - Change a trunk interface to an access interface or a hybrid interface. [HUAWEI]interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]undo port trunk pvid vlan //Restore the default VLAN of the interface to VLAN 1. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]undo port trunk allow-pass vlan all //Deny packets from all VLANs. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port trunk allow-pass vlan 1 //Allow packets from VLAN 1 to pass through. Run the display this command to check whether the interface has been added to other VLANs. If so, run the undo command delete the configurations. - Change the interface type based on service requirements. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type access //Set the interface type to access. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type hybrid //Set the interface type to hybrid. - Change a hybrid interface to a trunk interface or an access interface. [HUAWEI]interface gigabitethernet 0/0/1 [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]undo port hybrid pvid vlan //Restore the default VLAN of the interface to VLAN 1. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]undo port hybrid vlan all //Deny packets from all VLANs. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port hybrid untagged vlan 1 //Add the interface to VLAN 1 in untagged mode. Run the display this command to check whether the interface has been added to other VLANs. If so, run the undo command delete the configurations. Change the interface type based on service requirements. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type access //Set the interface type to access. [HUAWEI-GigabitEthernet0/0/1]port link-type trunk //Set the interface type to trunk. Note: The type of an interface can be successfully changed only when no VLAN configuration exists on the interface.
