If configure to bridge mode, the controller still can be the dhcp server for the client?

Hi , if configure guest wifi to bridge mode, is it possible to configure controller as dhcp serve for the guest wifi client? Please advise, thanks in advance.

You cannot have captive portal in bridge mode.

Hi Colin, thanks for your kind reply. If configure multiple vlan for one ssid, how many vlan can support per ssid can support? how the client will be assign to the vlans? random or rotate?

You can configure up to 10 VLANs in the Virtual AP, I believe.

Thank you Colin. 

We want to create multiple vlan for guset wifi because too many guest. If configure multiple vlan for guest, then how will the guset be assigned to the vlans , always assigned to the first vlan or assigning rotately? If all the guest assigned to same vlan , maybe IP address pool not big enough. this is what we worry about.

Just add a second VLAN in the Virtual AP field after the comma.  The controller will "hash" users between the first and second VLANs.  Make sure the subnets are the same size and you have enough ip addresses.

thanks a lot. 

 

One more question: for every AP group, only can specify 2 controller IP addresses (LMS /backup LMS), is there any way to add 3rd controller ip address to AP group configuration?

No.  You can only have 2.
