Autonomous APs with same SSID

Autonomous APs with same SSID

Hello.. i have been looking to install four cisco 2700 Access Points with same SSID. These APs will be connected to Broadband Router acting as NAT & DHCP.

What is best way to configure four APs so that there is no conflicts and Roaming also work.

Really dont want clients get frustrated on wifi connectivity.

Hi

You can configure those 4 AP like below (use four different hostnames). Keep SSID name & password same across 4 APs. 

 

conf t
hostname <AP_HOSTNAME>
!
dot11 ssid <SSID_NAME>
authentication open
authentication key-management wpa version 2
guest-mode
wpa-psk ascii <SSID_PASSWORD>
!
interface Dot11Radio0
encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
ssid <SSID_NAME>
no shutdown
!
interface Dot11Radio1
channel width 40-above
encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
ssid <SSID_NAME>
no shutdown
!
interface BVI1
ip address dhcp
!
end
write memory

Anukalp,

Yes Rasikas configuration will work.

 

Mkae sure you have diff hostname and diff IP for BVI interface for each AP, rest all configration will be same.
