 Subject:  2 Wireless Nodes Configuration
 Date:  Wed, 31 Aug 2005 16:18:33 +0100
Hi all,

 

We are planning the following configuration on 2 wireless nodes:

 

Site A:

WRAP 2A (266Mhz -128MB RAM)

LAN – sis0

WAN – ath0 (802.11a in IBSS mode connecting to Site B)

OPT1 – ath1 (802.11g in Hostap mode bridged with LAN)

Using m0n0wall 1.2b7.

 

Both LAN and OPT1 are configured with the 192.168.1.1/24 subnet.

On this site there’s another m0n0wall (192.168.1.254) providing internet
access to LAN+OPT1.

 

Site B:

Desktop PC (P3@500Mhz – 128MB RAM)

LAN – fxp0

WAN – ath0 (802.11a in IBSS mode connecting to Site A)

OPT1 – ath1 (802.11g in Hostap mode bridged with LAN)

OPT2 – ath2 (802.11g in Hostap mode bridged with LAN)

Using m0n0wall 1.2b7.

 

LAN, OPT1 and OPT2 are configured with the 192.168.2.1/24 subnet.

 

Now, a few questions we have before going up to the towers:

 

-          can OPT1 and OPT2 be bridged simultaneously to LAN on site B
without problems? (I’ve heard somewhere that’s better to use routing, just
want to avoid confusing routing tables for now)

 

-          m0n0wall (192.168.1.254) connected to site A is meant to be the
gateway of both networks, it provides DHCP service to the 192.168.1.1/24
allowing both LAN and wireless clients to connect to the Internet on site A.
How can I configure site B which has it’s own DHCP server on 192.168.2.1/24
subnet to connect to the Internet through site A.

 

-          how can I view the connection rate of clients connected to an
hostap mode interface? I can only view MAC/signal/noise. In pfSense,
executing “ifconfig ath1 list sta” would give the same info plus the current
rate of individually connected clients.

 

-          Is it possible with current atheros driver (in 1.2b7) to control
ACK timeout?

 

I hope you just don’t get bored with all these newbie questions.

Thank you all for your time.
