How to assign Vlans for different AP group with internet up-link vlan

I have several AP groups need to assign vlans for each group 

4550(0/0/2-)---L3 switch(1/1/13)-----L2 switch(1/1/1)--AP----Wireless clients

 

Controller Uplink -vlan 2222 (Ap vlan asame)

Core switch -  vlan 858 (tagged in uplink ports  of controller connecting to coreswitch & )

Internet Uplink -vlan 1002 (IP for wireless clients)

VAP profile - for eg AP group : Ground floor(vlan 858)

If the above is like this means where in VAP profile should i need to add vlans 858 & 1002 

Please explain

We need to configure vlan for floorwise wireless clients

eg: vlan-851-1st floor,vlan-852-2nd floor is this acheivable ?

Re: How to assign Vlans for different AP group with internet up-link vlan

It is achievable, but it creates unintended issues.  If a user roams from the first floor to the second floor, they will get a different ip address and break their existing connection to applications.  There are times when a user can be on the first floor and connect to an access point on the second floor.  It makes more sense to have everyone in the same wireless VLAN on both floors.

 

In addition, you have to create and manage a configuration that detects what floor a user is on and switch vlans;  that adds complexity and administrative overhead.  You also have to add and manage another VLAN to your routing infrastructure, which will waste ip addresses if the VLANs are not full.

You need to remember that the APs on the 2nd floor will support some of your clients on the first floor. Unless there is a security issue there is no reason to have floor 1 and floor 2 on a separate VLAN.
