Hi! My requirement is to connect the access point to an Internet Router through a common L2 switch so that wifi-enabled laptops will receive public ips through the DHCP pool defined on the AP and be able to access raw internet. The Internet Router has 2 subnets one for the leased-line and the other on the LAN interface.
I have configured the BVI interface with one of those public IPs and specified the default-gateway as the LAN IP on the Internet Router; on which I have created a reverse route for reachability to the public subnet on AP.
I am able to reach to the default-gateway but have no reachability for the subnets beyond.
While working on the problem, I have connected a laptop directly to the LAN interface and confirmed connectivity and browsing to the internet. Next, I bypassed the Nortel switch and connected the AP directly to the LAN interface, I can ping to the public dns servers but browsing is not happening.
However, I can browse from wifi laptops when I connect the AP on the client LAN segment.
Am I missing something here? Please have a look and advise.
