Lab 3: Configuring HREAP Topology Diagrams

Fig 1. Topology using WLC 2106

Fig 2. Topology using WLC Module

In this lab you will use the tools available to set up and monitor APs at a remote site. HREAP allows the remote AP to provide local service when the link to the WLC is broken. Note: Where addresses are shown as 172.x.c.d, replace x with a value determined by the pod. WLC1 = 16, WLC2 = 17, WLC3 = 18, WLC4 = 19.

Add option 43 and 60 to VLAN 150. Step 4 – Configure the Branch Switch Set hostname.0/24.0/24.Step 1 Set up the topology as shown. Step 3 – Configure the Branch Router Configure the serial link to operate correctly with the main router as per step 2. and use 192. On the DCE end of this link.

Step 2a – For Standalone WLC Add router R1 and set up a layer 3 link between the router and the switch using 172. 150 and Step 2b – For WLC Module Use a serial interface on the router. The main section should be configured the same as Labs 1 and 2. Set up EIGRP routing. The router subinterfaces should use . making the Ethernet interfaces passive. All VLANs should be passive interfaces. Configure EIGRP routing on this router.

Set the AP Name and location and change the AP mode to H-REAP. Apply the changes using the Apply button.Select WIRELESS > All APs and select the AP to be set up as HREAP. Step 6 – Create and Setup the WLAN Create the WLAN DWLN251 Lab3 3 13/09/2010 .

Assign the WLAN to the local VLAN on the Wireless DWLN251 Lab3 4 13/09/2010 .Enable the WLAN by checking the Status check box in the General tab Set up security Enable local switching by checking the H-REAP Local Switching check box in the Advanced tab. Apply and Save Configuration.

Note: The original WLANs should still also be available. Note: The original WLANs should not be available. Disable the serial link and ensure that the client still can access the local network.
