Model: ER605 (TL-R605)   EAP110  
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: 2.2.4 Build 20240119 Rel.44368

OK guys, I’m new to all this so if you can help me, please give me the information in layman's terms. Many thanks in advance.

 

I read somewhere online that I could use my Eero router in Bridge mode. So I did this and bought an ER605 and set the bridge in configured Eero router, on port 2 (LAN). For my WiFi clients. Port 1 is set to WAN. Port 3 has my wired devices via an 8 port Netgear switch. I had the ‘guest’ network turned ON, on the Eero. I was able to configure the ER605 via a Web browser and the Eero via the app. Everything worked in a basic setup. I had a TP-Link EAP110, which I wanted to use just for my clients. So I connected it to the EAP110 and turned off guest mode on the Eero. This meant that I had my clients coming in via a guest network that I’d setup on the EAP110. I installed the Omada software but was also able to configure it via a Web browser. I watched a video on YouTube by some Irish guy (not having a go at the Irish guys), he suggested that the ER605 should be configured in this way:

 

Create 2 Lans, Lan1 and Lan2. Then go into VLans and untick ports 2 and 3, then change ports 4 and 5 to tagged. He also did something similar to ports 4 and 5, unpicking then, then setting 2 and 3 to tagged. I think this meant that clients would be connected to different Lans, one user and one guest. I setup 2 LANS, one 192.168.1.1/24 and one 192.168.0.1/24 for the clients.

 

Can I pause here and just ask, what does tagging and untagging do? I can’t find anything that Explains this.

 

The Problem that I have now is that I can’t see the info for the EAP110. The Omada software sees it as before in standalone mode but now won't connect to it. I’m presuming that this is because the guest network is doing its job now. I can't connect via a Web browser either now.

 

Sorry to go on guys, any help much appreciated.

Hi, many thanks for the reply. Yes, I have already created the guest

" tagging and untagging " makes sense when you use different VLANs for your local subnets in ER605.

If you have only one EAP (EAP110) in standalone mode you don't need an Omada controller.

You can have a guest network just by configuring the EAP110 SSID like this:

 

If that suits your needs just reset the ER605 and EAP110 to it's factory default settings and start from scratch.

I.e. you don't have to configure VLANs to have a guest network SSID on your EAP110.

If you insist to have VLANs in your local network check the ER605 user guide Chapter 7 - here.

on the EAP110 and its working if I join it but now I not able to configure it. It won't conne t to it. I saw something about changing the settings so that Lan1 can get access to Lan2 but I can't find the video now. I think the guest network is doing its job.

If you're not familiar with using VLANs don't configure two different LAN subnets as you did.

Jusr reset both devices as I posted and start from scratch.

Omit this operation:

"Create 2 Lans, Lan1 and Lan2. Then go into VLans and untick ports 2 and 3, then change ports 4 and 5 to tagged. He also did something similar to ports 4 and 5, unpicking then, then setting 2 and 3 to tagged. I think this meant that clients would be connected to different Lans, one user and one guest. I setup 2 LANS, one 192.168.1.1/24 and one 192.168.0.1/24 for the clients. "

And just configure the guest SSID on EAP110.

Hi, I just spent ages typing a reply byt something happened when I posted. Ok, I created the guest network using this. The problem is that I cant see the EAP110 now. I saw a video today on YouTube where a guy mentioned that he could create something that would allow access from the user LAN to the guest zLAN but I cant find it now.

Hi, your suggestion worked a treat. I reset and setup everything again. I can now see the clients on  my guest network, from my EAP110. I'm also able to view and amend settings in my ER605.

 

Thank you so much for your kind help in helping me to resolve this problem, it's very much appreciated.

 

Dave.
