Model: TL-WA901N  
Hardware Version: V6
Firmware Version: 3.16.9 Build 200703 Rel.33357n (5553)

When I try to browse to my WAP, it usually times out.  The IP Address is 10.1.1.4.  I also have a TL-SG105E with an IP Address of 10.1.1.3.  I'm able to get to the TL-SG105E just fine.  I mention that as some degree of confirmation that the FW rules should allow it.  The laptop I'm doing this from is in the VLAN10 (10.1.10.0/24) network.  The WAP and the TL-SG105E are both in the default LAN (10.1.1.0/24).

 

The FW rule for both the default LAN and VLAN10 are "Allow all" rules.  When I look in pfSense at the DHCP leases, it shows the WAP as DOWN.

 

I KNOW the WAP is working -- it is providing the network connection that the laptop I'm using to post this message.

 

This issue has happened several times over the last few days (prior to that I don't know as I hadn't needed to access it).  Each time it happens, I've had to reconnect my laptop to VLAN10 and have been able to access tbe WAP.

I just realized there is a typo in my post:

 

Each time it happens, I've had to reconnect my laptop to VLAN10 VLAN1 and have been able to access tbe WAP.

 

Edit to add:  It seems like there is something in the firmware that only allows management from the same network as opposed to allowing it based on what the FW rules allow.

I believe this is by design - web management access to be allowed only from the management VLAN 1.

Here's a story which describes why Multi-VLAN mode APs may not work with different VLANs configuration.
