- First connect both IAPs in the same Layer 2 segment (wired), disable Extend SSID.

- Once they form a cluster you can unplug the IAP that will acting as the Mesh Point 

- Then just provide power to the Mesh point not a network connection and if is able to see the Mesh portal (backhaul iAP) it should be able to form the mesh link automatically no additional configuration.

 

 

Thank you

What have you tried ?

Were able to see both IAPs form a cluster first ?

Make sure you use E0 on each IAP not E1 .

Thank you

Ensure you first make them form a cluster by putting into a same VLAN.

 

Then, follow the below procedure for configuration:
