Addressing

In this section, you can configure your SSID to use Bridge mode or NAT mode.  By default, the SSIDs are in Bridge mode. 

 

  • NAT Mode: use auto DHCP
Clients receive IP addresses in an isolated 10.0.0.0/8 network.  Clients will be able to communicate with each other based on Wireless Client Isolation settings and may communicate with devices on the wired LAN based on wired LAN isolation settings.
  • Bridge Mode: make clients part of the router LAN
Access points operate transparently (no NAT or DHCP).  Clients receive DHCP leases from the LAN or use static IPs.  Use this for shared printers, file sharing, and wireless cameras.

  • Wireless Client Isolation
  • ON - Prevents wireless clients from communicating to each other within the same SSID.
  • OFF - Default setting.  When Client Isolation is OFF, Clients connected to the same SSID and radio band will be able to communicate.
  • Maximum Concurrent Clients Limits the number of clients that can be connected at the same time.  Toggle the sliding switch to the right to enable it. 
  • 802.11k - Radio Resource Management - Helps devices search quickly for nearby access points that are available as roaming targets by creating an optimized list of channels.  When the signal strength of the current access point weakens, your device will scan for target access points from the list.  By default, this setting is disabled.
  • 802.11r - Fast Roaming - When your devices roam from one access point to another on the same network, 802.11r uses a feature called Fast Basic Service Set Transition to authenticate more quickly.  This feature works with both pre-shared key and 802.1x authentication methods.  By default, this setting is disabled.
  • Sticky Client Auto Disconnect - Helps enhance overall roaming behavior by disconnecting clients with a high re-transmission rate, minimizing the "sticky client" effect.  By default, this setting is ON.
  • Band Selection - Choose which wireless band will be used to connect clients (2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, or both).  By default, Dual Band 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz is selected.
