Unifi and Air Router

I have set up a building with Unifi on all floors and Air Router in apartment but I have the issue that the PC can talk to Air Router, Air Router talks to Unifi but the PC can't talk to the router behind Unifi. If I connect Air Router to a Rocket M2 instead of Unifi, everything works . If I connect the PC wireless to Unifi, everything works. I tried with different mode being WDS or not and no change.

Any clue anyone because this is a very acceptable solution to deploy in apartment building if and only if Unifi could become Airmax in the long run.

need more info on your set-up

AirRouter----UniFi Controller----UniFi Stations-----

is this your setup? if yes why would you want the stations to talk
to AirRouter? that would not be good

Re: Unifi and Air Router

PC --> Air Router set as Station WDS --> Unifi AP --> Mikrotik--> Internet

Air Router to Mikrotik works
PC To Air Router Works
PC to Mikrotik no go

pC --> Air Router set as Station WDS --> Rocket M2 --> Mikrotik --> Internet

Everyone talks to each other.

WDS dose not work when you have a none UBNT device in the mix

did you try turning client isolation off?

Good point. The client Isolation was left on by mistake.

Re: Unifi and Air Router

Richard, I have a similar setup minus the UniFI and I want to add them as I have Air Routers in each apartment. How is your setup working now? Did you get it figure out? Can I pick your brain?

Re: Unifi and Air Router

My network looks like this;

1.                Time Warner 80M Internet Service to

2.                Cisco 2851 router to

3.                Cisco Switch WS-C3550-24-SMI & Camera POE switches in each of the 5 buildings to

4.                Ubiquiti AirRouter in each apartment.

5.                Note that all cameras are connected to Trendnet 100/1000 POE switches
