Step 5 – To confirm and check the status of the AP added go to “Managed APs List”.

Status > Wireless Information > Access Point > Managed

 


 
Step 6 – To edit the profile - Go to “AP Profile”.

Wireless > Access Point > AP Profile


 

Here you are able to create a new profile. In this example, we are going to edit the exisiting “1-Default” profile.


 
Right-click over profile and select “Edit”.


 
In our example, we have changed the profile name to “LAB”.

Profile Name: LAB
Hardware Type: Any (Or select the appropriate one for you)
Wired Network Discovery VLAN ID: 1

Click “Save Settings”

Step 7 – Once you have edited the “Profile Name”, click “Save”.


 
Once saved, you should receive the above screen and notice that the “Profile Status” is “Associated – Modified”.


 
To push this new settings to the APs, right-click and select “Apply”.

 


 
Once you see the above status “Associated” all changes have been saved and pushed to the APs.

Step 8 – In order to configure the options for the radio profile you created, go to “AP Profile Radio”.

Wireless > Access Point > AP Profile

 


 
Click “AP Profile Radio”


 
Step 9 – Right-click over 5Ghz Band and click “Edit”.

5Ghz Band Settings:

 






 
Click “Save”

Step 10 – Right-click over 2.4Ghz Band and click “Edit”.


 
2.4Ghz Band Settings:
 
 






 
 
Click “Save”

Step 11 – Once saved, you should receive the above screen and notice that the “Profile Status” is “Associated – Modified”. 



To push this new settings to the APs, right-click and select “Apply”.
 
 

Step 12 – In order to configure the SSID profile you created, go to “AP Profile SSID".

Wireless > Access Point > AP Profiles

Radio Mode: 5Ghz:


 


 
Right-click over the SSID – In our example it is “1-Captive_Portal” and click “Edit”.

Radio Mode: 2.4Ghz:

 


 
Right-click over the SSID – In our example it is “1-Captive_Portal” and click “Edit”.

NOTE: By default there are 16 SSID called "dlink" for each band. To customize the SSID, you need to click "Edit". If you need to change the parameters of the SSID, for example, first check “Radio Mode” is selected and then proceed with editing the SSID.

Step 13 – Now you will be able to see the SSID of any wireless device issued by the same Access Points(s).


 
In this example, we used “Captive_Portal”.
