Connect an AP to eth1 of another AP?

I'm being asked if it's possible (feasible?) to extend the wireless footprint by cabling an AP-225 to another AP-225 (eth1/eth1) that is connected to the wired network (eth0)? I seem to recall possible issues with tunnel-in-tunnel and mtu or some other challenge. I realize that's sort of what mesh is for used for but this is the ask. Running AOS 6.5.


Thanks in advance,



Re: Connect an AP to eth1 of another AP?

Yes, that's possible, and a specific targeted use case that was enabled when we introduced the AP-303P and E1 can be bridged.

Question is whether or not this is supported in the code you're running; you may need 8.4 or later. There may be restrictions/issues in earlier code.
