extend wifi range with vlan features

Hi,

I´d like to deploy a wifi enviroment with 2 bssids, for company and free users. Both different ip ranges. As main access point I´m going to use a  device with vlan features, my dubt is...:


Must have the second one vlan features too? or could I use a  cheaper device like AT-WR2304N

Right now I have 2 x AT-WR2304N, and although I can  configure 2 different bssid, no with different ip ranges.

Any idea?

regards

Hi,

You will need an AP that supports multiple VLAN's (802.11q trunking).

Hi,


Ok.

Then, If I have  2 or more devices AT-WR2304N, with 2 differet bssid... how could I give some range for  one bssid and another one for 2nd bssid?

set the DHCP servers up on the two APs to use different IP ranges ?

or do you mean two BSSIDs per AP ?

Hi, are you looking for a different subnet for each bssid or a split dhcp scope?

Well.... is a good question!.


Ipublished two different bssids one called corporation and the second one freecorporation, both with aes encryption but not the same pass of course.

I have a dchp running with windows 2008 server at 192.168.157.211(one of our ad servers),for the corporate bssid is correct and wonderful, but, also traffic from 2nd bssid.


I was thinking a radius rule all traffic from the 2nd bssid assing a different ip range at a dhcp server, which had a 2nd range configured.

Are you trying to segment the traffic between corporation and freecorporation?  for example, can someone connected to freecorporation be able to access the corporation resources?  What is the subnet assigned for corporation?  Is security a concern?  Are you wanting to throttle the freecorporation traffic to prevent abuse of Internet?

How are you preventing just web browsing to freecorporation?

Not a router I'm familiar with, I wondered about using the DHCP servers on the routers but they don't look to have the ability to set different IP ranges per BSSID from a quick look at the manual.
