So we run hotels, and at these hotels we generally isolate the wireless networks; in this case, we have applied the 'bridge to WAN' mode on the AP to accomplish this. We have a conference group coming in that needs a private, un-isolated network; how might we accomplish this without vlans?
I have tried setting up a local subnet to hand out its own IP range, which gave out IP addresses, but devices were not reaching our router. When using this 'Bridge NAT and route to WAN' option, how does this work? Do the guests get an IP with default gateway of the AP, and then the AP routes their traffic to its default gateway? Does it send this data to the router with the same IP as the guest device, or does it bridge it through the APs IP address?
Basically, how is this supposed to be used? It seems to me that it tries to reach the APs' d/g with the client's IP, while the client's subnet on this IP must be outside of the subnet of the usual network, meaning the router's interface would have to have at least two IP addresses
I have checked documentation and these 'modes' don't seem to be mentioned anywhere within the 2942 manual
