Hello Everyone, please I need some help here before decide my next AP.
I’m home user, and now I’m working from home. I want to separate my networks and devices creating a Vlan for my work, another Vlan for home users, Vlan for Iot and another for guests. I want to separate in different Vlans in order to avoid mixing all these devices in the same network.
I have the ISP modem and one firewall, now I need the AP to be able to control and manage all the wireless connections end to end.
To achieve this, I’m planning to create a home network with 5/6 different SSID and Vlan for each of these accesses. I want to be able to give priority to my “work” (video conference, etc..) and my Home streaming video services.
@Net_Security We can support up to 8 SSID's per network. You can use the NAT mode on each SSID and create a different network. For each SSID you can set bandwidth per user but not able to prioritize.
@Net_Security NAT mode will use your single IP of the AP that it received from DHCP and it will translate all networks behind it. So your firewall will only see a single IP Address. Here is a screenshot of setting up bandwidth and NAT on an SSID. Bandwidth only allows the clients to download and Upload at 5Mbps.
I have a similar need. Does this mean it is not possible to create a work, home and IOT SSID and assign each of them to their own vlan with the instant ap's?
Thank you for clearing that up, that's excellent news, I was getting worried for a minute!
