Is there ant simple configuration guid for 1042 , i have two floors and two WAN IPs one on each floor . I want to setup my users in such a way that they only See 1 SSID and they dont hav eto change anything when they move around from 1 floor to another .
Also i want to know the difference between the BVI 1 and Gigabit port , can i keep the IPs different also how can i enable DHCP for clients from the web interface
Are the 2 access points going to be on the same subnet or different subent ?
Since the 1042 are just layer 2 access points with no layer 3 option, we need to use only the BVI1 interface so we can assigne an IP Address to the AP and the AP is able to comunicate on the network via the gig port.
The access point has a ver basic DHCP feature that will only be able to provide IP address to the wireless clients if the wireless clients are connecting to an SSID linked to the same subnet as the AP ip address on the BVI1.
The DHCP option can only be enable via the CLI.
Here is the link where you can check on how to configure the DHCP option via the cli.
Also is there an AP configuration guid explaning every part of the AP, as i can see i can assign IPs to radio Interface ethernet port and BVI interface . So what is the purpose of assigning IPs to Radio interface
Hi, you can configure ip address on the radio interfaces, gig port or other bvi interface and this is because the unit works with IOS and will take any IOS command but it does not mean it will support it. The cisco enterprise access points only support an ip address on te bvi1
