AirOS Wireless Repeater/Network Extender Configuration

Cenário:

Ponto A Server / 3km Repetidora no Morro 3km / Ponto B Cliente.

Aparelhos ROCKET M5 – Ubiquiti – Primeira coisa atualizar o firmware.

1- Conf que pode ser feita é conectar o Ponto A (modo cliente conectando no ap repetidor) e Ponto B (modo cliente conectando no ap repetidor) no router repetidor (modo ap).

2 – Outra alternativa:
Uma outra solucao deu certo depois de pesquisar
radio server:
ap wds

radio repeditor
ap wds mesmas confs do outro radio server

radio cliente
station

Bla.. dai funcionou ok..
Ta ae outra forma de fazer e muittooooo melhor pois trabalha na camada 2 de rede!
O ping fica -1ms assim..

3 – Typical scenario is to install a Network Extender device to provide wireless signal to Clients that cannot be reached from AP #1 (poor signal level). We consider this simply network topology:

1 Router connected to Internet and/or private LAN (IP Address: 192.168.1.254/24)
1 AirOS device AP #1 directly connected to Router (IP Address: 192.168.1.21/24)
1 AirOS device AP #2 connected via wireless to AP #1 (IP Address: 192.168.1.20/24)
1 or more Wireless Clients (Notebook, WiFi-Phone, other Wireless devices…)
The Router assign IP Address to network devices by DHCP Server. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can set static IP Address to Clients.
In this schema, AP #2 is a Wireless Repeater device.

Configuring
Minimal configuration:

all AirOS devices in AP-WDS mode
same SSID
same Channel
enter mutual WDS Peers (or enable Auto WDS, not recommended)
AP #1 Setup
Login into AirOS WEB User Interface of AP #1 and set as below:

NETWORK Tab
Network Mode: Bridge
Bridge IP Address: Static
IP Address: 192.168.1.21
Netmask: 255.255.255.0
Gateway IP: 192.168.1.254
Click Change button to confirm
Click Apply button to apply changes
Wait until process is complete
LINK SETUP Tab
Wireless Mode: Access Point WDS
WDS Peers: 00:15:6D:B6:6D:4E (WLAN MAC of AP #2, you can see on MAIN Tab of AP #2)
SSID: mywlan (or any stringh to identify your WLAN, but the same for all WDS Peers)
Country Code: set according your location
IEEE 802.11 Mode: B/G mixed (assuming devices running in 2.4 GHz band)
Channell Spectrum Width: 20MHz
Channel: 1 – 2412 MHz (or any other free channel, but the same for all WDS Peers)
Output Power: 10 dBm (or check Obey Regulatory Power according your country law)
Data Rate, Mbps: 54, Auto
Click Change button to confirm
Click Apply button to apply changes
Wait until process is complete
AP #2 Setup
Login into AirOS WEB User Interface of AP #2 and set as below:

NETWORK Tab
Network Mode: Bridge
Bridge IP Address: Static

Gateway IP: 192.168.1.254
Click Change button to confirm
Click Apply button to apply changes
Wait until process is complete
LINK SETUP Tab
Wireless Mode: Access Point WDS
Auto: enable check box
WDS Peers: 00:15:6D:B6:6C:E2′ (WLAN MAC of AP #1, you can see on MAIN Tab of AP #1)
SSID: mywlan (or any stringh to identify your WLAN, but the same for all WDS Peers)
Country Code: set according your location
IEEE 802.11 Mode: B/G mixed (assuming devices running in 2.4 GHz band)
Channell Spectrum Width: 20MHz
