I just purchased a 1941w router to see if we want to use this to replace our existing routers and external access points. At each of our locations we have 1 subnet that has a server, AP, router, switch, etc.
I would like to configure the AP and the router in the 1941w in the same subnet but cannot figure out how to do this. If I setup the wlan-ap0 interface with an IP in the subnet I am using it will not let me assign an IP from that same subnet to any of the ethernet interfaces. It says they overlap.
No matter what I do I cant seem to use the same IP on both. I could if I purchased a 1941 without wireless and then purchased an aironet so why cant I do it when they are in the same box?
I'm not a cisco expert so I assume I'm just not doing something right. Any help appreciated.
You need to configure a bridged interface that is linked to your ethernet-interface and your wlan-ap0-interface. On the bridged-interface you set the IP-address. Search on cisco's website to set it up.
Thank you for the reply but when I try to bridge the wlan-ap0 interfae it says it does not support bridging. This is the command I used:
This isthe output I get
wlan-ap0 does not support bridging
Any other ideas?
Maybe this link will help:
Haven't looked though it, but if there is an answer for your question, it should be there.
I think the very first thing they show might be the thing you are looking for.
You need to create a vlan en BVI interface in you're config
ip dhcp pool LAN-WiFi
network 192.168.0.0 255.255.255.0
dns-server 184.108.40.206 220.127.116.11
ip unnumbered BVI1
arp timeout 0
no mop enabled
no mop sysid
no ip address
no cdp enable
hold-queue 100 out
no ip address
ip address 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0
ip nat inside
ip virtual-reassembly in
no ip route-cache
and do not forget
bridge 1 protocol ieee
bridge 1 route ip
in you're AP config you can set both ( 2.4 and 5Ghz ) to the vlan1
now the LAN and WLAN have the same IP range.
