Two APs with multiple SSIDs and VLANs > possible?

Hi there,

I've got one AP configured with multiple SSIDs and VLANs. I'd like to use a second AP now as a kind of extender ... is that possible and if yes, how?

I can configure the second one as 'wireless client' (instead of 'access point') but it seems like I can only connect to one SSID then?

Both APs are D-Link DAP-2360.

Thanks a lot!

You would have to put the mode into WDS.

Not sure though if the D-link will support multiple SSIDs. But WDS is equivalent of the old Wireless Repeater option in some Models.

Ah ok, thank you. The Dlink supports multiple SSIDs, at least in 'access point' mode.
