If you wish to support social network logins, you also need to add the following domains for each network you plan to support

Click OK to Save. Next, click the arrow beside the WiFi Networks header and then click the Create button. Configure with the following:

To complete the set up you will need to SSH in to the Unleashed (Master AP) and type the commands below, one line at a time.

wlan "Guest Wi-Fi"
called-station-id-type ap-mac

This will set the correct parameter we require for the MAC of the AP to be sent in the RADIUS request.
