WIFI Hotspot with low tech access points

Fri Jan 25, 2013 7:40 pm


I'm running a Wifi hotspot with 6 APs (RB411) managed by a RB1200 and radius server and it's fine. I have to add low cost wifi AP, netgear WGR614v9.

Problem is that the RB1200 hotspot can't "see" WIFI clients using this netgear AP. They are all seen as the same client, which is the AP itself. So when the first client authenticates, every further client does not need authentification.
I think the problem comes from the fact that the netgear uses its own DHCP server and manages itself the WIFI clients, it acts as a gateway, not a brigde. And i see no brigde mode in the netgear admin menu.

Is there a way to make this netgear AP work (and any other legacy/SOHO acces points) with mikrotik hotspot ?

connect the low cost ap's by wire to rb1200 and bridge their lan and wlan.
