Cisco BR1310G Wireless Bridge VLANing

Medium Priority
1,333 Views
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have 2 Cisco AIR-BR1310G wireless bridges at my company that we use to join two buildings together where buried line was not feasible.  They just use line of sight antennas mounted on the exterior of each building.

We are putting in a voice over IP phone system and i need the access points to be able to properly carry and/or tag the vlan traffic for the default data vlan (1) but also for the new voice vlan (15.)

I have tried to get it to work but i'm not having any luck.

I'm going to post the configs for both APs below BEFORE i started messing with them trying to add the vlan stuff.

please let me know what i need to add to make this work.

I can also do it through the web interface if somebody knows that way better.

Check this out...

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/1300/12.2_15_JA/configuration/guide/o13vlan.html



You mention the default VLAN is 1, so this is your native VLAN.  This is important when configuring the radios.

so from that documentation it looks like all you do is configure the sub interfaces for the native VLAN and it will tag and pass traffic for other vlans (like 15) as well.

or do you have to configure a seperate sub int for each vlan?

Author

Commented:
this is pretty helpful as well

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps4570/products_configuration_example09186a00801d0815.shtml

it appears that when functioning as bridges only you do only need to associate the native vlan to the SSID, at least according to that
