4402 WLC Dynamic Interfaces- More than 1 Gateway Possible?

Unanswered Question

I am configuring a guest access solution with multiple guest access gateways associated with a single VLAN. Each gateway will have its own /24 network, and obviously it own gateway. The interface configuration page requires a single gateway in the IP config section.

Does anyone know the purpose of this IP config?

Will command line config of the dynamic interface permit no gateway and a netmask big enough to encompass all gateways?

How are you configuring multiple gateways???? Are you trying to load balance? What you can do is use AP Groups and then you can define different subnets for one ssid. You will have to specify which ap will have which ssid and gateway? Other than that, usually you only have one gateway.

What you're trying to do sounds very unusual. Perhaps you can explain your requirements and then we can understand your problem better?

Thanks for your replies.

2 Coova gateways each with web authentication and a dhcp server plugged into each layer2 vlan works great with IOS APs, which do no require IP config per (vlan) subinterface.

The objective is to loadbalance, provide redundancy and handle the total number of guests. The DHCP servers race to provide the client with IP config which then causes the client subsequently use that gateway.
