Is it possible to use a UAP to gain access to a wifi, then repeat the network, to a switch?

Hello. This is my first time asking a question to the community - i think.. Anyway..

 

Is it possible to use a UAP to gain access to a wifi, then repeat the network, to a switch via an ethernet cable? - So that you can have a wireless wire from one switch to another? 

 

 

 

Sincerely Thank you!

Hello @vicmrp,

 

A wireless wire?

You can wireless uplink a UAP to another UAP and use a switch behind both UAPs, see the example below.

 

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

 

I do however highly recommend hardwiring all your UAP/USWs.

Yes but only if you use the Unifi AP's. They can't wirelessly connect to another companies AP.

Hello @vicmrp,

 

You can take a look at this article on the wireless uplink part.

Wireless uplinking a UAP thats hardwired into a switch can be a little tricky tho.
