Bridging Transparent Multiple Wireless networks

Sat Mar 24, 2007 5:43 pm

Hi All

I'm stuck... I want a the same IP Ethernet range on each end of 3 wireless networks. I can create a transparent bridge between 2 networks, but how do I create a transparent bridge between 4 networks? I've read bridging have limitations and VLAN will work better, but my VLAN knowledge is very rusty.

I have a high site 532 routerboard with 3 wireless links to 112 routerboards. I want the same IP range on all 112s ETHER1.

Can someone please help me?

You need to use WDS between the AP and the stations and bridge the ethernet with the WDS interfaces.

Bridging Transparent Multiple Wireless networks

The problem with this is, you cannot assign multiple interfaces to 1 port.

I do use WDS between AP and station, but you can only assign 1 interface as a port. "Couldn't add Bridge Port < > - device already added as port (6)"

This is what I have:

3 Wireless networks -> 3 Bridges: VBridge, BBridge and PBridge

I want Ether1 of each Wireless network, including Ether1 of the High site to be transparent, using the same IP address range.

I understand the last part of you post "bridge the ethernet with the WDS interfaces" , but how do you assign WDS interface if it is already used as a port?

:?
