I'm testing the mesh functionality that is present on MTRBs
The sole purpose is to understand its functionality, especially
in terms of improving user roaming.
Firstly is it possible to create a 'wired' MESH ?
It is necessary to setup a WDS network for MESH
to work i.e. is MESH an extension of WDS ?
If the answer to the previous question was no, then let's move forwards.
All APs need to use the same SSID, ok, but what about channel (frequency)
do they also need to be the same (as with a WDS setup) ?
In my setup, each AP has a bridge linking the Eth and Wlan interfaces together
Each of my three APs is hooked up to a central switch using Ethernet
In setting up my MESH I selected, on each AP, the bridge as the MESH port
The APs are all working properly, as in, they are connecting
the users to the network, but I can't access the APs anymore
their IP and MAC addresses aren't visible to me anymore.
Not really useful for maintenance access...
Thanks for any input, suggestions, ideas.
