CONFIGURING WLAN MESH
This section describes how to configure the WLAN mesh services.
WLAN mesh services allow a MAP to provide wireless services to clients
without having a wired interface on the MAP. Instead of a wired
interface, there is a radio link to another MAP with a wired interface.
WLAN mesh services can be used at sites where running Ethernet cable to
a location is inconvenient, expensive or impossible. Note that power must
be available at the location where the Mesh AP is installed.
The following illustration shows how a client can connect to a network
using WLAN mesh services.
