Configuring a point to point Mesh link in Aruba Central
05-22-2018 09:47 AM
I have tested a p2p mesh link between an IAP 305 and 303H using Aruba Central.
Internet -> Switich -> IAP305 ---- Mesh Link ---- AP303H --- Client
Here is the step by step guide:
1. Connect both APs to the same L2 network (same VLAN):
2. Upgrade firmware to recommended release:
3. Disable "Extended SSID":
4. Disconnect the AP 303H and wait 5 minutes, AP will connect via Mesh. Mesh, by default within IAP, will share the 5Ghz for backhaul and client access.
5. Test WiFi, it works!
