IAP 135 meshing setup

Users are using wired LAN and wireless access at 2 different location less than 300 metre distance.

I have setup 2x IAP meshing for another location by using PoE switch for the users.

Users want to have a wireless access at there.

1.) Can I setup new IAP135 by connecting mesh point PoE switch for wireless users?

2.) Can you show me how to setup both wired and wireless on mesh portal IAP135? use Ethernet Port 1 to broadcast wifi access on portal IAP or Point IAP?

 

Thanks and Best Regards.

Hi,

 

:smileyhappy:

Hi,

 

*First it's recommend for u to upgrade your iAP units to the lastest OS version*

 

*Mesh is enabled automatically in IAP units with dual radio/when there is no LAN connectivity . (Via the 5GHZ radio)*

 

Do some reading over here: ( an old post with answers from me and other AirHeads dudes):

Re: IAP 135 meshing setup

As far as i aware, It's possible - you just need to be sure that your new iAP can connect your VC(Virtual controller) via your POE switch (establish communications via lan/vlan - in the same segment(s) that your VC is) in the 2nd building , if so - it will work.

In order for e1 to work on IAP 135 your switch port needs to provide PoE 802.3at
