You do not have to adopt the switch, it can stay in standalone mode.

  @d0ugmac1 The Roaming function is fully supported also in STandalone mode?

I don't believe roaming, fast or otherwise is dependent on the switch configuration. As long as the VLANs are correct, the SSID on the AP should do it's thing.

  @d0ugmac1 I remembered I have see this note on this link https://www.tp-link.com/it/support/faq/2097/: "If Omada Controller or OC200 accidentally shuts down, then fast roaming will not work."

What do you think about it? Its our case?

The controller is needed for Fast Roaming, but whether the switch is managed or standalone should not matter.  All the magic happens between the AP and the Controller.

  @d0ugmac1 so, with the Switch in Standalone mode, how can I set the EAP? Controlled or Standalone mode? You consider I bought OC200. Thank you!

AP's *must* be controlled by the OC200 for fast roaming to work.

  @d0ugmac1 so I set the EAP as Controlled Mode, right?

  @z3n0 Correct.  Then just ignore the switch on the controller, and configure it manually. The rest of it, ie the router and EAPs and their underlying subnets and VLANS are all done via controller.  The only thing you need to be careful of is that you manually configure the switch correctly for your active subnets/VLANs. You might even be able to 'hide' the switch from the controller with a switch-based ACL preventing the switch from talking to the controller and vice versa.

  @d0ugmac1 So, I will configure in this way:

  • VLAN L3 on Router/Firewall
  • Omada Switch in Standalone mode
    • VLAN ID
    • port association (tag/untag/pvid)
    • eventually ACL to block switch communication
  • OC200 in management VLAN
  • EAPs in Controlled Mode

 

Is all right? wink
