I have a switch network running VLANs, and I need to extend this into a building that I can't physically get a cable to. I have two 1300 series bridges that I want to use to create a bridge between two switches in either building.
I need multiple VLANs to pass over the bridge.
Looking at the documentation the only examples I can find involve creating subinterfaces on the bridge ethernet port and setting each subinterface to its own VLAN and SSID.
Is there a way to get the devices to act as a bridge carrying multiple VLANs over a single SSID?
I don't want the bridges to act as Access Points - only bridges.
The 1410 bridge will do it. We are doing it right now. You have to setup sub interfaces on the radio but they do not need multiple ssid's. Try setting up one ssid on the 1300. Then under the radio and ethernet interfaces setup your sub interfaces. Under the radio interface setup your vlan encryption. The 1410 installation document has more details. I would assume that the 1300 will work the same.
The wireless bridge is logically made up of two components: a transceiver and a bridge. The transceiver is a radio that will forward traffic to the next bridge; it doesn't care about VLANS. The management interface of the bridge should be on a separate IP addressing scheme, a /29 VLAN say, that looks like a P2P connection to the L3 gear it touches. If you are going L3 to L2 switch, keep the bridges on the vlan supporting the management interface of the switch--the vlans defined on the L3 gear will come through intact.
The management interface BVI when dealing with sub-interfaces has to be on the native VLAN. I have made the management VLAN of the L2 switches the native VLAN and given the bridges an IP on that VLAN. Is this secure?
Secondly, I don't understand how to configure the FastEthernet port on the bridge to connect to the L2 switch. The switch must be a trunk in order to support multiple VLANs.
I can't find a way to configure the fastethernet on the bridge as a trunk without using multiple sub interfaces - so I don't understand the relationship between the radio and fastethernet sub interfaces.
Should i not be defining sub interfaces on the radio? Do I just map all fastethernet sub interfaces to a single SSID?
