Want to understand the use cases of wifi-uplink in IAP?

Hi, 

 

I have a requirement. I have a wired printer, want to make it as a wireless printer with an IAP. Can i do it with wifi-uplink? 

I want all the users both wired and wireless to be able to access that printer, which shall be connected by ethernet behind a IAP. 

 

The wifi-uplink connection will place clients on a vlan(for example10). Can the printer also get IP-address from the vlan10 from the existing net(DHCP)? The gateway for the printer should be a wired router in our network(vlan10). 

 

is this configuration achivable?

With wifi uplink all client traffic coming out of the AP is natted, so it is not appropriate for your use case.  It is meant to bridge wifi traffic on an AP to a wireless hotspot.  If you want to uplink a wired to wireless network, it is better to get a wireless bridge.

Hi Colin,

 

Is Wifi-Uplink backup link when wired access down?

My understand is Wifi-Uplink is another way to keep internet connection.

Am I right?

It can be configured to be up when the wired network is down, yes.
