Passing a second network through a backhaul link

Thu Sep 04, 2014 4:36 pm

Guys,

I am trying to find the best way to do this. I have two, physically separated networks that need to be distributed to the same area. I already have an existing backhaul link with more than enough bandwidth to handle this second networks traffic. My first inclination was to do the following:

1. Create virtual WLAN interface
2. Create Bridge1 = ether1 & wlan1
3. Create Bridge2 = ether2 & wlan2
where network 1 goes through Bridge1 and network 2 goes through Bridge2

The problem is that virtual wlan interfaces can only be virtual AP's, not virtual clients. So this will not work.

Is BCP bridging the correct solution to my problem? Any better suggestions?
