WS5000 multiple wlan isolation
« on: July 09, 2015, 04:54:29 PM »
Hello guys,

I have a WS5000 with one wlan setup, with another device handling dhcp/authentication services.  I have added a second wlan but want to ensure that users of each can not see each other.  Since I am quite far from the site and don't have a spare WS5000 on hand it is hard for me to do testing.  Currently both wlans are pulling from the same IP range farmed out from the DHCP server on the authentication device.

A couple questions:

Will the MU to MU drop/disallow option assist here or does that only work within the wlan?
Do I need the firewall enabled on the WS5000 for this to work?

You need to work with Vlans and corresponding Wlans

 MU to MU drop/disallow option - only work within the wlan

Wow I'm always amazed how many WS5000s are still running. I myself have a customer with several WS2000 and some WS5000 still in production. It's ok when nothing changes for years, but I'm always scared when they want me to make changes on these boxes.

Anyway, my point is that these are quite old and therefore you can usually find some for your lab cheaply for sale on eBay etc.

(I've just checked eBay and there are plenty for sale. One guy is selling 5 x WS2000 for $150.)
