I am not the greatest network technician but I want to get some help.
I have several TP Link WA801ND APs. I have configured them to act as normal access points enlarging my home wifi. That works great so far.
My new topic is to create a guest wifi as well.
Can I use the APs I already got and that I already configured to create a guest wifi, too?
In fact I already followed some instructions I found on the net. And I now have 1 AP that has the private wifi AND a guest wifi. When I am signing in to the private one I get an IP address and I am connected to my private wifi. When I am signing in to the guest I am getting an IP address but I cannot get access to the internet.
I know that my main router has the function to create a guest wifi as well and that you can configure port 4 of it to send a guest lan over it. But that is not what I want. I just want to create a second wifi network - the guest network on the APs.
Another question I have then would be how to configure DHCP. I can configure a DHCP on one AP. But how would that work together with other APs?
What I've got so far is 2 interfaces: LAN and GUEST. I have 3 positions on the wireless site: the "Generic MAC80211 802.11bgn", the private SSID and the guest SSID.
What am I missing or doing wrong? Can u help me please?
