Re: Point-to-multipoint Connection for wireless bridge

Hi,

How do i connect the following :

Bldg A ------>

Bldg C (serving as a repeater) --------> Bldg D

Bldg B ------->

Do i need to deploy all the wireless access point as workgroup bridge (for bldg A, B, C and D) ?

Cheers,

Toh CS

Re: Re: Point-to-multipoint Connection for wireless bridge

Hi Toh,

Do you need access to ethernet lans in buildings C and D ???

What is the range between the buildings ?

The *best* solution would be

---|--BR350------BR350--|---BR350--------BR350-----|----BR350-----BR350---|--

BldA Bld C BldD BldB

---|--- is wired ethernet segment ------ is a radio link

All of these would be point to point links and would provide ethernet access to all buildings but it does assume that you have a clean line of sight between each building that has a point to point link on it. If you have high volume traffic then you may need to add routers to the network design to break up the broadcast domains

Just because this is the best solution it does not mean it is the only one but there are too many varriables to do a full network design on here. Maybe you could call a reseller in your area for a full site survey and network design

Re: Re: Point-to-multipoint Connection for wireless bridge

Hi,

I have ethernet LAN at Bldg A, B and D but not Bldg C.

There are about 1 Km away from each other.

With that information, would it be different in the solution.

I would still recommend the same as if you use a repeater on bld c you will half your throughput
