Virtual AP across several APs

Thu Feb 12, 2015 7:20 am

Hi

I'm trying to setup an additional (SSID) AP for a site, accross four routerboards.

On each RB912 device, the wlan1 interface is bridged with the ether1 port, and an IP address assigned to the bridge
The wireless interface is set to apbridge

I then added a Virtual AP to each device, named wlan2, and ensured that wlan1 is it's master port
and assigned an IP address belonging to a different subnet than that of the bridge

The central, default gateway, device, an RB2011 2HnD, is also configured with the wlan2 Virtual AP

Now I'm not sure what the next step is; do I need to create a vlan linking the APs to the RB2011
to cater for the second IP subnet ?

thanks
yann

Almost
I will recomend to create vlan1 for wlan1 and vlan2 for virtual-ap. Both vlans shuold be created on ether1, but you shuold delete ether1 from the bridge. Than just bridge vlan1 with wlan1, vlan2 for virtual ap, and create the same vlans on central rb.
