What is the meaning of
“Type - This field is shown in the 5 GHz band. Select Fixed/CPE (fixed clients), Hotspot (mobile devices) or Trunk (intranet bridge) to define the type of clients that will connect to this SSID. Different VLAN configuration fields will appear based on selected type”
I have my A5’s set for Fixed/CPE. I run 3 VLAN’s across the A5/C5 links.
On One A5, after recent power outage, all CPE’s reconnected but only 1 of the 3 VLAN’s was reachable. I was running 188.8.131.52-Beta1 so after a few hours of head scratching I upgraded to 184.108.40.206 and still had a problem. Getting desperate I switched the Type to “Trunk” and all three VLANs became reachable again.
The rest of my A5’s are still running “Fixed/CPE” and all VLANs are reachable… but I get the occasional call about the Internet ‘stalling’ when the customer is using it.
What is the correct setting and why ?
