1200 Repeater Configuration


I am trying to get a 1200 setup as a repeater and have run into a problem, any help would be apprecaited.

I have 3 vlans setup for wireless on site. One for radios/infrastructure, one for valid users with regular logins, and one for guests that just gets them to the internet - they cannot see anything on the regular network.

I am trying to setup a repeater so access can be obtained from the test track back to a radio in the building closest to the track. The radio on the track will be mounted inside a Bradley Fighting Vehicle. The radio in this building does not have the guest vlan setup on it because it is too close to the road.

I tried to set the repeater up with the user vlan, it would associate to a parent, but I could not get client traffic through and I could not ping the radio. I am guessing because the track radio was set to the user vlan, but the building vlan was set to the infrastructure vlan.

Then I set up the repeater on the same vlan as the building, on the radio vlan, and assigned the client a static address in the same range, and it works.

Am I going to have the force the bldg radio, test track repeater and client devices to the same vlan, the radio/infrastructure vlan?

Thanks in advance



Re: 1200 Repeater Configuration

The problem is, when you configure repeater APs in your WLAN you cannot have more than one VLAN. This is because Repeater APs support only one VLAN. Have a look at the following document which explains how to configure repeater APs.
