Consider this setup:
MikroTik gateway - CAPsMAN running --------------- AP ------------- DSL modem for some special connection
I have 2 subnets on main MikroTik gateway. Both MikroTik gateway and DSL modem have internet. But, I want to use DSL for some special needs.
I want to setup 3 different SSIDs for my subnets and another for DSL connection. All wireless configuration will be handled by CAPsMAN.
- First, for my subnets I create CAPsMAN forwarding configuration. CAPsMAN forwarding creates 2 virtual interfaces on main MikroTik gateway, those are basically your wireless interfaces on your AP. You don't need any configuration on AP. Using, configuration on CAPsMAN, you can add these virtual interfaces in any bridge you want. Just enable CAP on AP.
- Second, the third SSID for DSL is configured using local forwarding. This will not create any virtual interface on main gateway, but will just send configuration to AP. You need to setup all other necessary network configuration on AP yourself.
