Hi! I have follow setup in my country house: 1) Fiber internet coming to garage 2) Backup LTE Huawei modem on my bedroom. I have first mikrotik on Fiber enter, and second with LTE modem. Also i deploy 4 ruckus unleashed ap (2-720, 1-610, 1-T310). All working fine, but i want to setup redundacy -when my fiber chanel drops, transfer to LTE, and wise a versa. I found VRRP (virtual router) as a solution - it just change additional IP address on 1 or 2 router with special protocol - for example 192.168.1.254. So - 1 router initially has address 192.168.1.1 +192.168.1.254, second router has address 192.168.1.2. Gateway for network 192.168.1.254. When fiber router down by some reason - situation changes, and 1 router has only 192.168.1.1, but second has 192.168.1.2 + 192.168.1.254. This address transfer working fine, but only issue is rebuilding unleashed network while reboot router. Actually i have wireless bridge by Ruckus between router 1 and router 2. And when power down and restore - i have 2 separate unleashed network with main gateway 192.168.1.254. one - in segment of router 1, and second - in segment of router 2. And issue that this 2 networks can't become one. Is anybody meet same issue?
VRRP will not work if your devices (APs) don't have direct L2 access to both gateways. I suggest putting a switch in front of the 2 routers and connecting devices to the switch rather than directly. Set your default gateway to the virtual address 192.168.1.254 on all devices.
thank you for reply! Unfortunatelly my routers are in different location without ability to use wired connection. I use ruckus unleashed as a bridge. If i just setup VRRP over working unleashed network - all works fine. If main router lose internet connection - backup LTE start share and everething working fine. One internet return to fiber channel - VRRP switchs to main rounter. But when i try to reboot unleashed network - in just working on rebulds withoud end. I afraid thats becouse mesh AP can't become master AP. so - in case of rebuilding wireless bridge - both AP has access to internet with one address 192.168.1.254 and therefore can't build mesh network - like 2 masters with access to the internet throu 2 different channels.... on mikrotik bridge don't rely on internet connection and works fine without issues on power failure
I have wireless bridge on unleashed and issue is that my wiress client, connected to master or root ap in one segment - cant ping ever Mesh AP in other part or wireless bringe.Internet working fine - access in second segment.
