G3100 AP Repeater Mode

Message 1 of 3
(560 Views)

Greetings,

 

Does anyone know if the G3100 can be configured for AP/bridge/SON-repeater mode as a replacement for E3200 and external (4-port) switch. My thinking is to use a second G3100 in AP/bridge/SON-repeater mode with primary G3100 in default configuration to replace an E3200+switch. I understand that the cost is significantly less to use an external switch for adding more than the two ethernet ports available on the E3200 but would like to know if it's possible to configure the G3100 in "E3200-mode" for the additional two ethernet ports to avoid needing an external switch. Meanwhile, it would have been great if the E3200 included 4-ports, same as the G3100, for pennies more in manufacturing cost, but oh well.

Of course you can do that. Just follow the G1100 Bridging Guide. Although G3100's user interface looks different, the gist is the same. https://forums.verizon.com/t5/G1100-Bridging-Guide/bd-p/g1100-bridging-guide

Thanks for confirming. I noticed the references for G1100 bridging but wanted to be sure the G3100 could be setup for bridge mode too. I'll give it a try...
