What is the procedure to construct the WDS between the standalone APs?

Scenario

I want to use my standalone APs to construct the WDS environment. What is the procedure?

Step

1. Go to CONFIGURATION > Network > IP Setting, and configure all the APs with static IP addresses.

2. Go to CONFIGURATION > Object > WDS Profile > WDS, and configure the WDS SSID. Also confirm the WDS SSID and Pre-Shared Key on all APs are the same.


3. (On root AP) Go to CONFIGURATION > Wireless > AP Management > WLAN Setting. Set the Radio 1 OP Mode as "Root AP", and choose the Radio 1 WDS Profile as "default"(it depends on the WDS profile that you configured.).

4. (On repeater AP) Go to CONFIGURATION > Wireless > AP Management > WLAN Setting. Set the Radio 1 OP Mode as "Repeater", and choose the Radio 1 WDS Profile as "default"(it depends on the WDS profile that you configured.).

5. Remove the cable line of the Repeater AP; otherwise, it will cause loop environment if connecting the Root AP and Repeater AP in the same switch.

Verification

1. (On Root AP) Go to MONITOR > Wireless > WDS Downlink Info, and you will see the Repeater AP MAC address.

2. (On Repeater AP) Go to MONITOR > Wireless > WDS Uplink Info, and you will see the Root AP MAC address.
