Re: Base radio MAC vs ethernet mac

A Cisco access point acts as a bridge, therefore it has to ( sometimes three # )interfaces;

Ethernet address connected to the switch

Radio adress for the clients to associate with.

# If the access point has an 802.11a radio it has a different address to the 802.11b/g radio
