Multiple SSID through autonomous Repeater

Unanswered Question
Apr 2nd, 2009

I have an 871W setup for remote users via DMVPN. The WLAN radio has two SSIDs

- One for corporate access (EAP-FAST) terminated via DMVPN at the HQ.

- One for local home usage (WPAv2 PSK), which gets NAT to the local internet connection.

Some homes are too big to be covered with a single 871W, I need to extend that WiFi reach.

I'm planning to use an Autonomous AP1131G in bridge mode to extend those two SSIDs.

Have you guys done it? Any recommendations? I don't seem to find documentation on how to extend multiple SSIDs through a repeater.

I have this problem too.

You can't..... only one SSID can be used which will also be the SSID that will connect back to the root. If you were doing bridge to bridge, that would be different and you would be able to pass multiple vlans, but you are going from and 871W to a repeater....

I was wondering if you had a scrubed version of your config. We are trying to do this very thing and would save a ton of time if we could see an example of the dual ssid. Thanks
