Seperate Vlan for Wireless clients

Hi,

I have 10 IAPs and i don't have mobility controller.I am administrating IAPs through Virtual controller.Currently my all LAN users are on Wireless network.My data center and wireless lan are on same VLAN.

 

I want that my Datacenter and wireless should be on seperate VLAN.I have create two vlan -e. vlan 10 (Wireless) and vlan 20 (datacenter) inter vlan routing is working fine.

 

if i place my all IAPs in valn 10 on switch it will work.How i configure my virtual controller for all this.

Re: Seperate Vlan for Wireless clients

If you specify the vlan is the ssid settings, you'll need a trunk port for your APs.

 

Based on what you've said, for your APs, it would be trunk port (vlan 10,20), with vlan 20 to be the native vlan.  The APs will come up and get an ip in the data centre vlan (20), but the clients will be place in vlan 10.

 

Hope that helps.

Re: Seperate Vlan for Wireless clients

you'll need a helper address vlan 10 that points to your server.  You can put this on the vlan interface on the network, or you can put into the config on the Instant.

Re: Seperate Vlan for Wireless clients

In that case the APs will get an ip from vlan 10 and you'll need the helper address on your infrastructure.

 

If you then set the ssid vlan settings to be Network Assigned --> default, this means the clients get an ip in the same range as the APs themselves.

Re: Seperate Vlan for Wireless clients

for the APs to come up in that vlan, you'll need to put the helper address on the vlan interface on your switch infrastructure.
