I have two AP7532 setup as a wireless bridge, The bridge is working, On the remote side I have installed an ap7131 - I can see the SSID and connect units will get an IP, however the AP is not checking into the RFS7000, If I connect the AP to the local network it does check in

On the AP I have 3 SSID's 1 on vlan1 ( same as the RFS7k ) and 2 on Vlan 10 which leaves the network via a different route.

I can connect to the SSID on VLAN1 and get an IP, the two wifi networks on VLAN 10 are not operational at present as I have to add the VLAN info to the network switch where the AP is


Have I missed something when setting the bridge up ?

Do you use local bridging for traffic? If yes, are booth VLANs added to the bridge?

Hi Phil, If you are using a MESH config' for the bridge it doesn't forward Layer 2 (Level 1) mint adoption requests. Try configuring the AP7131 to use L2 adoption

I think router and DHCP are two complete different parts.

You can do a packet capture on the ethernet interface from the AP and check filter for DHCP. Is DHCP forwarded to the LAN, is a response from LAN available?

Additional you can check drop and deny.

Other option, configure multicast to unicast DHCP, if you have a problem with to much broadcast is an option.
