Cisco Aironet ap1141n-e-k9 help configuration

Hi all,

i have just got a brand new aironet access point belonging to 1140 series (1141n-e-k9), it has been a while since i worked last time with cisco devices and i really need few help to configure this AP. (also useful link is appreciated)

I've an existing (wired) network with a dhcp server that provides IPs for the following class: 192.168.1.0/24 (default gw 192.168.1.254)

I would like to configure this new AP with ip 192.168.1.253 on gigabit ethernet while radio interface would have ip 192.168.2.1 and act as a dhcp server for following class: 192.168.2.0/24

Maybe it could be configured in another way but it's important for me to have client connected to ap in a subnet (i.e. 192.168.2.0/24) different from existing one (192.168.1.0/24), is it possible?

I read the manual with the title: "Cisco IOS Software Configuration Guide for Cisco Aironet Access Points" but i really can't figure out how to accomplish this simple(i guess) task.

Any help (links,tips or tricks) would be really appreciated (since my brain is about to blow up )

TIA,

Antonio

You can do that, just need to be able to trunk the switchport the ap is connected to. Here I a link.

Re: Cisco Aironet ap1141n-e-k9 help configuration

No you can't. If you require more than one vlan, then you need to be able to trunk a port. The AP will not switch/bridge the since it doesn't perform those actions. So you need to first find out if the switch is a managed switch or not managed before you can determine if you can have more than one vlans. If it is a managed switch and you can trunk the port, then you would have to configure that subnet on the network if not there already.

Re: Cisco Aironet ap1141n-e-k9 help configuration

Hi Scott,

thanks for your answer and for links you provided , however i have a problem with that.

is it possible to find a solution for this problem internally to the AP? (sorry if my question would sound stupid)

atm i can't "put my hands" on the device the ap is connected to (it's a customer's requirement, unfortunately) and i don't know either if the switch would be a cisco device, is there a solution (maybe without vlan) to solve my problem?

since ap has an gigabitethernet interface and a radio one, couldn't i setup an ip belonging to class 192.168.1.0 to ethernet and an ip belonging to class 192.168.2.0 to radio dot11 and setup a bridge between this two interfaces?

thanks for your answer and your time,

Antonio
