Hello @Mtxrider,

 

Welcome to the community!

 

So you want your setup to look like this? ( example )

USG > USW > UAP - - - - - - UAP < USW < PC

 

This will work, just power the wireless uplinked UAP from a POE switch/Injector

Re: Create a WIFI Bridge with to AP AC Lite

Sorry for my bad english,

 

it's absolutly that,

 

But I've no switch with POE injector.

 

I have only an single injector delivered with my AP AC Lite.

 

Can I use the POE injector connected after my switch ?

 

Did i need another DHCP Server ?

 

How can I setup this on the unifi software ?

 

Did i must create another site connected on the first one that emit wifi signal ?

Hello @Mtxrider,

 

You can power the UAP with the POE Injector, thats exactly what I meant.

Plug the switch into the LAN side of the POE injector.

 

In the controller you have to enable the Uplink Connectivity Monitor so you can wireless uplink UAPs.

Settings > Site > Uplink Connectivity Monitor

And you have to enable "Allow meshing to another access point"

 

In the controller, go to Devices > click your device > in the window on right click Config > Wireless Uplinks.
