I would like to add a repeater (a have an existing tp-link ap) to a hotspot interface (ex wlan1 running on RB4433AH with only trial users).
I know this is a Mikrotik forum and this is not a proper question to ask but consider that I'm only asking about routeros settings and routerboard's compatibillity with other equipment.
My thinking is:
Make a bridge interface.
Adding WDS to wlan1 (dynamic with the above bridge).
Adding ap to access list in wireless interfaces with authentication and forward ticked.
Adding ap's mac to ip bindings in hotspot so that the ap doesn't need authentication.
Will this going to work?In ip hotspot active and hosts will I have the same mac (ap's mac) for all the users?Or am I going to have only one user in the ap end with the ap's mac in ip hotspot active list?
Other than that.I tend to use old hardware and this is a good oport. to do that in order to extend wireless area.
