Which Access Point?!

I am assigned to implement a wireless network and i intend to use repeater mode in the building but, there is one problem, iam not sure which access point supports more than one MAC address to repeat to and the other to recieve (trying to input more than one MAC address in each AP for redundancy).

Does anyone know a Cisco or non Cisco AP that supports more than one MAC address for repeating mode?

Which Access Point?!

Hi Aero,

You have posted your question to wrong place because this forum is Japanese only.

Could you please post it to following site again?

Which Access Point?!

Be aware that every repeater you implement between the two sites, the speed/throughput cuts in half.

So you sure you want to go down this path?

Which Access Point?!

Thanks,What i want is 7 access points in the building, only one of them will be connected to the ethernet and sends the singnal to the next, so 6 of them will not be connected to anything but the power.

Re: Which Access Point?!

Depending on the size of the building, that approach may not work well in practice.

Ignoring the potential bottleneck of the 100/1000 connection between the single AP and the WLC/Switch (depending if Autonomous or WLC), repeating the signal X amount of times also reduces the speed/throughput as mentioned by Leo above.

If you only have a handful of clients using this Wireless Network, it may be fine but its definitely not suitable for a larger deployment where you expect to have maybe 10-15 people per AP.
