TL-WA801N service communication VLAN

TL-WA801N service communication VLAN
TL-WA801N service communication VLAN
3 weeks ago - last edited a week ago
Model: TL-WA801ND
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version: TL-WA801N(US)_V6_200116

I have the above AP. I can set-up ssid-s with different vlan id-s and it works (except that remote access is not working in multi-ssid mode, regardless if vlan mode is enabled or not - there is an other thread on that). What I could not figure out and did not find in the manual whether the service packages of the AP (its own IP DHCP request and hopefully the remote management traffic once it works) are sent tagged (what tag) or untagged. Could somebody help?

Thanks,

@jollytall Good day, 

 

We need some more details to locate the problem, can you help confirm:

 

1>If you do not use multi-SSID mode but AP mode on TL-WA801ND only, can you remotely access the access point? 

2> Did you open ports on router for this AP for remote access, may I have a photo of your port forwarding settings for AP. 

3> May I have a photo of your multi-SSID settings as well AP's current DHCP settings.

4> Please let us know your network topology: for example  ISP xxx---- Modem-- router Model xxx ---- TL-WA801ND )))(( PC.

@Solla-topee 

Thank you for your reply/questions.

 

One thing to clarify: When I talk about "remote" access it is not remote in the sense of outside the LAN. It is remote, meaning not from a device connected to the AP (through WiFi), but from another node in the LAN network (i.e. through the AP's Ethernet cable).

 

1. Yes. If I use it as a normal AP, it gets an IP address from my main router and from the LAN network anywhere I can access the AP using this IP.

2. This is not applicable. As said above, I do not try to access the AP from outside the LAN, i.e. no port forwarding is necessary. The AP has a local IP and I can even connect to it, but instead of giving the management UI, I get a 403 Forbidden reply.

3. The AP is currently in use, and as the main problem, I cannot enter it any more. Basically when I change to multi-ssid I loose the access through the Ethernet port. (This is the problem.) At that point I can still access it from a WiFi connected device. Once I also change the ssid-s to VLAN, the WiFi connected devices are in a separate network as the AP, so I cannot access it from WiFi either.) So the only way to give you a photo of the settings is to factory reset the device, but then you would not see the current setting. Nonetheless, I can tell you that dhcp server is switched off (WiFi devices get IP from the main router based on their VLAN id - works OK). The IP of the AP itself is through a dhcp client mechanism, and it also receives it OK from the main router.

4. The relevant part of the topology is very simple: (ISP - Media converter - ) Mikrotik RB2011/RouterOS v6.47.4 - TL-WA801ND - WiFi clients. It is worth mentioning that another TP-Link device (WR1043ND) with an openwrt OS is connected similarly (i.e. a hybrid trunc) to the main router (having VLAN cable ports as well, not only WiFi VLANs) and it works as intended.

 

I also attach two screenshots:

One from the main router DHCP client lease list, where you can see that the AP gets a proper IP from the router (just like the TP-Link router converted to an openwrt AP).

The other is the reply received when connecting to the AP. It can be seen that the device is connected (IP, etc. are all working) but the device refuses to accept the connection (as if the Allow Remote Access option was not selected, but IT IS.).

@Solla-topee 

Thank you for the firmware. Yes, I can confirm that it works as intended.

 

Actually, I replied to you in e-mail immediately for all the three mails you sent (to all the three addresses that were in your mail). Yesterday, all the three mails I sent on the 25th, 26th were bounced back from your ... .outlook.com server with "Server busy" error. So, sorry, but not I was unpolite; the e-mail system did not allow me to reply.

 

Best regards,

 

jt
