    Hi,

    We are looking for a Toplogy Design for an Internet only site where we want to use an Aruba 2930M Switch to connect to Internet/ISP for a basic Setup. Aruba Access Point (AP314) can be used for Wireless connectivity. 
    What would be the best design approach to have the Switch and AP connectivity through to the Internet for different types of ISP hand-offs.

    Simple way to go with L2 mode using ISP router as a gateway and dhcp server for all users.

    One vlan for all services

    If you need more control on users, there should be a firewall/router behind isp gateway

    Hi Harendra,

    But we may not have the same kind of hand-off for all the ISPs, and if we get an ethernet drop from ISP with public IP Address and only a few LAN IP Addresses.

    Is your hypotetical scenario representing an Internet connectivity shared among various "internal" (private) tenant networks or what else?

    Hi Parnassus,

    Its not a hypothetical scenario but the topology we are trying to design for our sites with less number of users and who do not need dedicated connectivity to our Hub/DC sites with MPLS or DMVPN

    If you are getting public ip from ISP, you should require and device (router/Firewall) to perform NAT from your private network to public.

    connect isp cable to your router/firewall wan, then Firewall LAN to your switch.

    Hi Harendra,

    Can the Access Point AP315 do the NAT, although the Access Point has only one LAN port so I cannot connect the AP as my edge device, so my Aruba 2930M switch has to be my edge device and the AP connects to the switch.

    You can try this for but you will get access oy for wireless user.

    1.Connect ISP uplink to switch and AP to switch in single vlan(layer 2 switch).
    2.Assign public static ip to access point.
    3.Configure ssid with ip assignment "virtual controller assigned"

    I never tried this one and just an idea..

    Note: your AP might be publicly accessible.

    Hi Harendra,
    What about NAT on the Access Point on AP315 ?
