This document explanis how to configure a WGB to support multiple Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs) under different scenarios.
Cisco recommends that you have basic knowledge in AireOS Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) and Access Point (AP) in autonomous mode configuration.
Autonomous AP v15.3(3)JD4
Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) AP
Switch 802.1q capable
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, make sure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
WGB with Multiple VLANs Associated to a CAPWAP AP
This example explains how to configure a WGB supporting multiple VLANs, associated to a CAPWAP AP. The Access Point can be in Local mode or Bridge Mode (Mesh). This scenario requires that the WGB is connected to a switch that support 802.1q, otherwise WGB cannot support multiple VLANs. In this example the WGB is connected to a Cisco Switch 3560.
If the switch does not support 802.1q, all the clients will be assigned to the native VLAN.
In this example WGB is assigned to VLAN 210 and the clients connected to the switch behind the WGB are assigned to VLAN 2601 and 2602.
The WLC must also have configured dynamic interfaces that belongs to client's vlan. In this example the WLC must have dynanic interfaces on VLAN 2601, 2602 and 210.
Step 1. Open the WLC's Graphical User Interface (GUI) and navigate to CONTROLLER > Interfaces to verify the current dynamic interfaces configured on the WLC.If the needed vlans are not already configured, click New and add the needed ones.
Enter the interface's information
Note: If your WLC has Link Aggregation (LAG) enabled, you are not able to select a port number.
Step 2. Navigate to WLANs > Create New > Go.
Step 3. Choose a name for the SSID and profile, then click Apply.
The command infrastructure-client allows the Root AP to respect the VLAN assignment that WGB have for its wired clients. Without this command, the Root AP will assign all the clients to the native VLAN.
