Adding New Access Points to the Network

If your staffing or wireless coverage needs increase, you can add APs to your network easily and efficiently.

Depending on your network security preferences, new APs can be automatically detected and activated, or new APs may require per-device manual approval before becoming active.

The Automatic AP Approval process is enabled by default, automatically approving AP join requests. If you prefer, you can disable Automatic Approval. If this is your preference, ZoneDirector will detect new APs, alert you to their presence, and then wait for you to manually “approve” their activation.

Figure 11  Automatic AP approval is enabled by default. Deselect this option to manually approve each AP join request.
