WDS deployment

Unanswered Question
Nov 12th, 2007


I have to propose a Wi-Fi zone for a university.There are around 8 floors and I plan to go with 1200 series

A simple solution which would come to your mind is 1231g (IOS) installed in WDS mode.Documents shows that


will work fine. AP1 and AP2 are in range with WDS master on which I will terminate internet connectivity with ethernet handoff.

Great! Now the design specific problem I am facing that there is nowhere written or shown that


would work.AP1 and AP2 are not in direct wireless range with WDS. So is AP5.

So will this work.

The idea is to deploy 2 APs per floor and both the floors' APs should work in WDS so that I would not have to lay ethernet for each AP.

Pardon me for being silly.....

Also I have seen that there is around 50% signal degradation (3-4dB) loss per floor.Will above setup work?

Pardon me for being silly.....:)

Any ideas? comments?

Thanks in advance.


I have this problem too.
