Just wanting to glean some ideas about setting up a wireless mesh network.
Currently we are looking to create a 5.8ghz network between 6 points (in a star shape)
- 5 of these points has a 2.4ghz card which we're going to setup an encrypted network on.
- The network needs to be transparently bridged.
- The network has one central point that is just 5.8ghz and has line of sight to all the other points
- one point has a Ethernet network, which although needs to be separated from the wireless network, will provide an internet link to the wirelessly connected clients.
See diagram below:
Just wondering if anyone could give me an idea on how I could transparently bridge these while using dynamic-wds for the 5.8ghz and keeping the same dhcp ranges for the 2.4ghz AP's.
I've already been over this http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Transpare ... o_Networks
but it doesn't cover multi point networks.
Also, where can I find the 'rstp-bridge-test' package mentioned here -> http://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Mesh_wds
I thought perhaps it might do the job?
