Ruckus 9.6 or 9.7 (ZD managed)

IMPORTANT: This guide is for the Ruckus ZoneDirector 9.6 or 9.7 release. If you are using release 9.8 or above please select Ruckus AP (ZD 9.8 or above) in your portal and use that guide instead.

NB: Support for ZoneDirector 9.6 and 9.7 is limited by restrictions in the Ruckus captive portal settings, and user experience may be varied. We strongly recommend using 9.8 or above.
