hAP ac lite 5GHz LAN Access Point


Joe AE6XE reports that the  Nightly Build available on Nov 28, 2018 will now include capability to use both wireless cards in the hAP ac lite device.  The 2GHz is the Mesh RF and now the 5GHz is a standard part 15 Access Point bridged with the LAN network.   This means that LAN mesh devices can be both on wifi and physically on the Ethernet port, both allocated the IP addresses assigned for the LAN network.   

For now, the 5GHz channels overlapping Doppler Radar are not selectable -- the "DFS" channels.   This will be an add on later to integrate in these channels. 

The code changes that make this possible, also make the following capability readily doable and are in the pipeline for the nightly build:

1) Activating the Nanostation XM devices' secondary Ethernet port to be standard AREDN functionality (and daisy chain devices with poe passthough).
2) Ability to enable/disable the following for single wireless card devices -- only one active on the wireless at a time or both disabled:
     a) mesh RF as we know today
     b) LAN Access Point for...

Improved Capability on XW Device Ports

 

Full functionality of both ports on Nanostation M2 and M5 XW units is now available.

Joe AE6XE found a way to remove the limitations noted in the forum thread.   Both Ethernet ports on the Nanostation M2/M5 devices are now configured and working without limitations.  This code will be available after tonight's build on Nov 22, 2018.  Text included in the AREDN GitHub README:

The following devices have enhanced Ethernet port usage.

  • NanoStation M5 XW
  • NanoStation M2 XW

A single CAT5 cable to the device could be plugged into ether the 'main' or 'secondary' port with standard port functionality. Both ports can be used interchangeably and simultaneously with LAN devices on both ports at the same time. POE PassThough can be turned on in Advanced Settings to power IP cameras or other mesh nodes. It is passive' POE, which means whatever voltage you supply the M5 XW with, that voltage is passed though to the secondary port and device.  It could be between...
