Greetings from France.
I have built a cisco lab in my garage with old routers and switches, in order to prepare a certification.
I can't install any ethernet cable between house and garage, but I can install a router nearby in the house.
With a WRT54Gv3 and a WRT54GL it works in WDS mode but only for the default vlan:
House/Cisco-C3560CX ------> House / WRT54G - - - - -> Garage /WRT54GL ----> Garage/Cisco lab
eth WDS eth
Creating a trunk between the cisco and the copper ports of the wrt54g works flawlessly
The problem is that I need a trunk for my vlans.
It seems there is no way to tag vlans to the wifi interface.
So do anybody have some magic to have this working with these oldies, or do you have some more recent inexpensive models to recommend me?
- Possibility to create a trunk over wifi.
- Strong wifi
- Eth ports: Gigabit is not mandatory.
The most common brands available in the second hand market in France are, I think, Tplink, linksys and netgear.
Thnaks for reading me and for your advices.
