Virtual AP not working

Sun Jul 04, 2010 1:32 am

Hi all,

I am running RouterOS 4.10 and attempted to set up a Virtual AP using the same settings as the default wlan interface but am having some problems.

I have an external DHCP server and have both the WLAN and VAP interface set up as DHCP relays. The WLAN interface is configured as 192.168.1.1/24 and the VAP as 192.168.2.1/24.

Whenever a wireless device attempts to connect to the VAP interface the DHCP server receives the requests and sends the response, but I see no indication that any packets have been transmitted out the VAP interface (tx counters remain zero).

I have no problems with the main wlan interface.

Both wireless interfaces are configured to use WPA2-PSK and the same security profile.

Your dhcp server is sending an ip/subnet/gateway that matches each interface, correct? Just checking the simple stuff first.

Very odd. I use lots of VAPs with no problem at all.

Try deleting the VAP and re-creating it to see what happens.

What radio card is it ?

Does it make a difference which miniPCI slot it is in ?

I had a lot of problems with Engenius Cards when i tried to setup 2 VAP in each interface i change the cards to r52h and inmmediatly worked.

Sometimes, we picked the wrong cards for different scenario.

Check if mac winbox sees your router from the wireless connected device, to check for connectivity.
If so, then you try setting up a dhcp server on the interface directly ( on the vap, meaning ), and see if you have connectivity.
