Unable to configure 10 SSIDs on V2110+Hyper-V

Hello, everybody!

I have V2110 (9.21) with Hyper-V (2012 R2) installation. My task is to configure 10 different SSIDs for 10 teams, and every SSID have to be binded to a certain VLAN.

SSID (Team-1) have to be associated to VLAN10, SSID (Team-2) have to be associated to VLAN20, etc.

Could you please tell me, what kind of topologies I have to create in this case?

At the moment I have the following:

For each SSID I've created two topologies, for example:

VLAN10, B@EWC, VLANID 10, untag, port esa1, 192.168.10.1
VLAN10-S, B@AP, VLANID 10, tagged

It works only if on Hyper-V side I set "VLAN identification" for a certain interface. This limits me to creating only 2 SSID working simultaneously because of untagged traffic at V2110 side and Hyper-V limitations (where I can set only 1 VLAN per interface).

Please, help me to solve the problem!

Many thanks in advance.

You'd either use a bridge@AP or bridge@appliance topology.

Bridge@AP = the traffic is leaving the AP interface in the configured VLAN = you'd need to configure all VLANs that you plan to use on the switch port to the AP.

Bridge@appliance = the traffic is trasnported from the AP to the appliance and the leaving to the LAN into the configured VLAN =  you'd need to configure the VLAN on the switch port to the controller.

Which is the right one - you are the only one that could answer that - it's a network desing question.

I hope you don't plan to transmit all 10 SSIDs on every AP .... because that doesn't work as the limit is 8 per radio.

Hi, Ron, thank you very much!

I have 09.21.01.0179 firmware and there is no "Bridge@appliance" topology type.

Could please describe the setting just for one of my VLANs for example?

Do you mean it could be enough to have only one topology for SSID?

At router side I've created all the required interfaces and they are routed.

I think, have to clarify my task: I have to provide 10 isolated wireless networks for teams with internet access.

Hello, Ron!

At least, I did it like this. The only problem was internal DHCP Server, I used an external for all the VLANs.

Thank you very much for your help!

Let me ask some more questions...
What privacy/encryption and authentication method is used - in example is it only WPA preshared key, or 802.1X PEAP,....

BTW, B@EWC is bridged@appliance.... pretty confusing because the name changed soooo many times.

Well, I used WPA-PSK, but I have experienced also in 802.1X PEAP (authenticating with Active Directory over NPS).

And again, the strange thing is DHCP at controller doesn't work.

Thank you.

Regarding the screenshot - you either configure a bridge@EWC OR bridge@AP but not both.
As I've mentioned it comes down to the network design which method to use.

I'd recommend to read the manual "V2110 Virtual Appliance Installation Guide - MS Hyper-V Platform" page#13, there are the instructions to support tagged VLANs in Hyper-V which you need for bridge@EWC toplogies.

If you use bridge@AP the controller can't be the DHCP server - you'd need an external one.

Hello, Ron!

The required infrastructure works only if both topologies are configured and enabled.

Would you please share this manual with me?)

Thank you.

I believe the document Ron is referring to can be found on this page:  https://extranet.extremenetworks.com/downloads/Pages/WirelessControllers.aspx
Look on the documentation page under Wireless Hardware and Gateway Guides -> Virtual Gateway V2110
