5 port switch + wlan + guest wlan using rb951

Thu Jul 04, 2019 8:27 am

I just bought this routerboard and need the following config running.
a) 5 port switch + wlan (dhcp provided from ISP router, plugging a cable on a etherX)
b) Guest wlan isolated with own dhcp, only internet access.

Current network 192.168.1.0/24

Any help will be appreciated

Did you do any research before buying the routerboard of unknown type/name?
This is not a consumer off the shelf plugnplay device except for the default settings that allow it to be used out of the box but then
needs configuring beyond that.

Model RB951G-2HnD
I know that, I used this devices before, just can't get this config working. Are you telling me that it can't do this?
I can make the bridge with 5 ether + wlan and that works.
Then I create a VirtualAP, a DHCP and IP pool for it. But when connecting to guest SSID I have no Internet.
Need advice on the firewall and NAT rules. I think that is the problem.

All that you have stated is very doable.
However one cannot guess at your current setup.
Please post your config for anal ysis.
