Hi all, if I put an ip address on my cisco ap fast ethernet interface, does it automatically create a BVI interface ?

I have this problem too.

Hi carl,

When you connect the AP to the wired LAN, the AP links to the network through a BVI that the AP creates automatically.Instead of tracking separate IP addresses for the Ethernet and radio ports of the AP, the network uses the BVI interface. This is why you assign IP addresses to BVI interfaces instead of to individual interfaces.

Pls rate if it helps.

I see, so when I add an ip to the fastethernet interface, does it automatically add the ip to the bvi interface ?

hi, i have another question, i know it is possible to create another interface BVI on an AP other than the interface BVI1, i also assigned it an ip from aonther range. i am not able to ping this new ip from outside the network. is there any command in particular which allows both the IPs to be accessible from outside the AP.
