TitleWhen and where do I need to tag or untag vlans in different topology types on an identiFi wireless controller
Question
  • When and where do I need to tag or untag vlans in different topology types on an identiFi wireless controller?
Environment
  • identiFi Wireless
  • Extreme Wireless
  • All firmware versions
  • Bridge at Access Point (B@AP)
  • Bridge at Controller (B@EWC)
  • Route at Controller Routed (R@EWC)
  • Physical interface
Answer
General
  • Only 1 vlan for a topology on an interface or access point can be untagged
Physical interface
  • Can be tagged or untagged as required
  • AP's can register on the controller managed by this interface if the appropriate radio buttons are selected in the topology definition 
Bridge at AP:​
  • The vlan for the topology must be tagged or untagged at the AP as appropriate.
  • The vlan for the topology does not need to be carried to the controller
  • AP can be managed in the same vlan as client traffic, however it's recommended to use a different vlan for AP registration.
Bridge at controller
  • The vlan for the topology must be carried to the controller, tagged or untagged as appropriate
  • The vlan for the topology does not need to be carried to the AP as all user traffic will be encapsulated in a WASSP tunnel
Route at controller
  • The vlan for the topology does not need to be carried to the AP as all user traffic will be encapsulated in a WASSP tunnel
  • The controller will forward using its routing table, the next hop will be via a physical interface.
