wlan interface—Configure virtual access points (VAPs) for SSIDs in a WLAN (on vEdge cellular wireless routers only).

On a vEdge100wm router, you can configure up to four service set identifiers (SSIDs) on the WLAN radio. Each SSID is referred to by a virtual access point (VAP) interface. To a client, each VAP interface appears as a different access point (AP) with its own SSID.

To reduce RF congestion, it is recommended that you do not configure more than two VAP interfaces on the router.
