the 2 Ports in AP 225 and AP 325



We are using AP-225 and AP-325 in all offices and i know that they both have 2/1G ports, my question is:

If i connected the 2 ports to different switches, can the ports configured to broadcast certain SSID to split the traffic?

is connecting the 2 ports will double the speed or it is just for rededency?

Appreciate your help,

Re: the 2 Ports in AP 225 and AP 325

The 225 and 325 cannot split the traffic from two different SSIDs to two different ports.


You can provide increased bandwidth by bonding the ports together through LACP.  Only SSIDs that use 80mhz channels would even begin to approach a gigabit sustained, however, so you might be consuming a second port for little use.


You can provide some sort of redundancy with LACP, as well, but if the interface that is providing POE to the AP goes down, the access point will have to reboot.
