I am going to build a roaming network with 2 linksys routers and a Aruba 7005 controller.
How could I connect the routers?
Should the main router connect to the PoE port 0 of the controller and the other to the port 1?
Also, how should I configure the controller settings?
I know how to set up the roaming environment without the controllers but my teacher have asked me to build the network with the controller, therefore I am very confused.
Yes, you are correct.
I have set the linksys-1 's ip address as 192.168.0.1 with DHCP on ,channel 1,DHCP Range：192.168.0.100 – 192.168.0.200
and linksys-2 as 192.168.0.2 with DHCP off ,channel 6
the linksys-1 is connected to the Internet by the Internet port
the linksys-1 and linksys-2 connected each other by port 4
They works great in roaming.
Therefore, how should I connect them to the controller?
just do something, as mentioned the controller will act like a switch if you don't do anything.
you can also just ask your teacher if you understood him / her correctly as also pointed out the Aruba controller won't do anything with linksys devices expect switch / route the traffic.
Aruba controllers are designed to work with Aruba APs. While you can connect any ethernet device to an Aruba controller, it will do nothing for you that any other network router/switch would do.
Without the Aruba APs your Aruba controller is just a fancy router/switch realy.
If you do have Aruba APs can you clarify your question with a network diagram perhaps?
