  • 1.  Converting a tunneled network to a bridge network.

    We currently have a tunneled network setup and would like to convert it to a bridge network can anyone tell me the steps that i would need to take to make that happen so we can add more WAPs to our network ?

    Thanks

    Hello,


    Step 1: Add your VLAN tag(s) as tagged to the switchports that are connected to your AP's.
    Step 2: Create "bridged@AP" interface from the "Configure > Policy > VLAN" menu. Select the checkbox 'tagged' next to your vlan interface
    Step 3: Change your current WLAN profiles Default VLAN to your newly created bridged@AP VLAN. (assuming you are not using role-base VLAN attribution)

    I believe that Robin provided you with instructions for centralized deployments whereas you may need the ones for WiNG.

    WiNG:
    1 - Make sure that all WLAN are mapped to correct vlans
    2 - Change the WLAN bridging mode to Local: https://extremeportal.force.com/ExtrArticleDetail?an=000082354
    3 - Make sure that ge 1 port on the APs are trunked and allow all vlans in configuration 
    4 - Clean up config from any tunneling remnants

    On your network, make sure that vlans are configured and allowed all the way to whatever destination you'd want your wireless clients to go.

    In doing so how many APs can i introduce and is there a license fee or is that just for the controller ?

    Hello OGB,

    The number of APs you can add depends on the licenses you have on the controller (licenses required) if adopting by the latter, but if adopting to a VC (no licenses required) then it depends on the AP model.

    Thank you

    What is the max amount of AP licenses that i can add to the NX5500 cluster ?

    In a cluster the max amount of AAP licenses that can be used would be the max allowed number of licenses one of the controllers can handle, else you will lose redundancy. 

    In local bridging mode the NX5500 controller supported 512 AAP licenses.

    If we moved to the 7500 hundred series controller could it support more then 256 APs in tunnel mode ?

    The NX7500 can adopt up to 1024 APs when WLANs are tunneled and 2048 APs when WLANs are locally bridged. 

    Hope this helps,

    BR,
