I need to connect a layer 2 network between two buildings with radio. The buildings are not in far distance, only about 30m. (And I can´t put a cable between).
Can I connect with mesh networking?
I need to connect a trunk link with a few VLANs between two MS switches and would like to use MR accesspoints for that.
In this documentation it´s explained, but I can´t see if this link is a trunk link with some VLANs in it:
Who has experience with that kind of network interconnect?
You can choose only one VLAN to bridge, unfortunately. So, you cannot use MR as a 'standard' bridge.
Not sure why this is, but I have had to revert to other products for bridges like this.
Specifically from the link you shared:
Repeaters will also serve SSIDs trunked on different VLANs. However, only one SSID & associated VLAN may be configured to bridge wired clients across a mesh link on a repeater access point's Ethernet port. A mixture of wired clients and Cisco Meraki access points attached to one MR repeater interface is not a supported deployment configuration. This is due to the auto detection mechanisms that Cisco Meraki access points use to infer when they should function as a gateway or a repeater.
Unfortunately the MR line cannot trunk multiple VLAN's across a mesh bridge. I'd recommend looking at the Ubiquiti NanoStation line as a cheap alternative - https://www.ubnt.com/airmax/nanostation-ac/
