  • 1.  Why "ENET 0" Port cannot be used as a downlink port?

    Posted 12-13-2019 04:43 PM
    • The Aruba Instant ON APs doesn't support connecting downlink devices to "ENET0"
    • ENET0” is always considered as the uplink port.

      This function is applicable for all the below scenarios:

    1. “ENET0” Port of a Mesh Point AP which is set up in "private network mode"
    • Once the AP becomes a Mesh Point, The “ENET0” port will become unavailable.
    • In this case, If we try to connect a Device to the “ENET0” port, The AP will start rebooting.
    • The AP reboots automatically as it considers the uplink port as active(ENET0) and tries to find the network through that link.

    • The Only AP which supports Downlink device connectivity is AP-11D.
    • AP-11D has 3 additional LAN ports—E1, E2, and E3 respectively.
    • These ports can be used to connect additional devices in the network.1.png


      NOTE: The 'ENET0" port of AP-11D doesn’t work even if the Uplink is over the air (applicable for both Mesh Point and AP connected in a “Router AP” mode)

    Has this been resolved ?  Every wifi bridge product I've ever used has this capability .  Which instanton WAP has this ability ?  I need to connect two locations together using a wifi bridge .  Are you seriously telling me I need to aquire a third party product to achieve this ?
