Hi folks,

I am planning to upgrade my network infrastructure after being frustrated with consumer hardware. My setup needs to reach across three floors of a building, which does not have cabling between all floors. Thus I intend to bridge between two floors using a wireless mesh, but I have not been able to determine from the documentation and FAQ's whether that can work or not and which AP hardware to use.

 

Here's what I am planning to do at the moment:

The wireless network provides three separate SSID'S which correspond to three VLAN's, all need to span all three floors.

 

Question: can I create a mesh between AP1 and AP2 that also acts as a bridge between the networks on the 1st and the 2nd floor? And will that bridge transport the necessary VLAN information?

 

I have ruled out using the EAP 6xx AP due to lack of mesh functionality, so I am focused on the EAP 2xx series with mesh support now.

 

Kind regards

Daniel

Many thanks for the quick reply.

I assume the long answer would include descriptions on how to configure that specific case, but I will figure that out during the setup anyway.
