1130 AG Infrastructure Setup

Hi all. I was wondering if the following setup is feasible.

I have a client with a decent amount of square footage to cover, but no way to run cable to connect all the APs to a copper network. Is it possible to use one radio in the 1130AGs as a 'backhaul' to a root AP with a copper connection and the other radio to serve wireless clients? TIA.

Re: 1130 AG Infrastructure Setup


From your base explaination, you want to set up a repeater in the radio network. See this link from the AP1130 config guide:

and ref figure 6-1.

this is a more detailed link on repeater config:

Re: 1130 AG Infrastructure Setup

Thanks for the response. I realized too late after I posted that I wasn't very thorough. I know I can set up units as repeaters, but that reduces the available bandwidth because a repeater AP has to pass packets twice to get roundtrip from a client to the root. Here's what I'd like to accomplish:

D0 (client roots) D0

^ ^

<|> ------- O > < O

firewall ethernet AP D1(root) D1(WGB) AP

where the D1 on the APs acts as a P-MP, and the D0 on the APs serves client devices.

I actually might have it operational right now. Originally, I was unable to get beyond the firewall from a remote AP. Did some funky static ARP stuff because the remote APs couldn't resolve from the IP of the firewall. Any thoughts? Theories? I'm trying not to settle for repeating, but I will if I have to.
