I hope the community here can help and suggest a device or range of devices, there appears to be a variety of terminology used aka Client Router and WISP router. The methodology has been proven using a non-cisco WISP router (TP-Link TL-WR843ND) but I need to use Cisco devices due to Wireless Security reasons primarily.
The device/s required but bridge and route between two networks. One network is wired and the other is wireless !
Network #1 is wireless, dynamic address DHCP and DNS, Radius Servers with PEAP/EAP etc
Network #2 is wired, fixed address (192 range) where data from Wireless Network1 needs to be routed to specific ports of specific devices aka Port Forwarding.
The router required is a client of Wireless Network #1 and routes to Wired Network #2, router acts as gateway for wired network.
The TP-Link device in WISP mode works as required, with the following attributes:
It acts as a client of the Wireless Network.
Acts as gateway of the wired network.
Port forwards from Wireless Network #1 to the Wired network #2.
Provides DHCP for Wired network #2.
Prefer if more than one wired switched port.
POE device is preferred.
Speed of Wireless is not a major concern
More than one router device per network is required, so cheap-ish router required.
Wireless security must be enterprise level.
My knowledge of Cisco devices is limited to their Access Points, what I would like is suggestions on devices that could do this, point me in the general direction or (if possible) suggest a device.
