How does DHCP and IP assignment work?

Follow

Each node provides built-in DHCP routing by default, dynamically assigning an IP address to clients, regardless of which SSID they've connected to. Nodes are capable of assigning 1,022 IP addresses per SSID.

If you'd prefer to use the DHCP server on your LAN, you can enable Bridge mode on any SSID (one by default; multiple if you enter a VLAN tag). With this enabled, we'll forward all requests to your internal DHCP.

    @ Street If you're using Cloudtrax 4 you can enable bridge mode on the Advanced tab. Select "Bridge SSID" to SSID2. In Cloudtrax 3 select the "Bridge" option on the SSID2 tab.

    Would you mind elaborating on how you can disable builtin DHCP / NAT on more than one SSID, I have three networks that DCHP is provided by an external box all three are using vLAN tagging so the above would make me think it is doable, I just cant figure it out.

    Thanks for your help

    You can add a VLAN tag for each SSID and that will bridge that SSID to that VLAN so that your VLAN's DHCP will be provided to clients on that SSID.

    Bryan thanks for the reply!

    Right now SSID 2 is set to the native vLAN, no tagging, and under Configuration > Advanced > Miscellaneous both Bridge SSID and Bridge wired clients are set to SSID2 so when i connect to SSID2 and it works great! The issue is that SSID1 also needs DHCP from an external device and the kicker is that it is on the same vLAN as SSID1. They are both on the same vLan because i have a requirement to guarantee that 5Ghz devices are on the 5GHz radio and 2.4GHz is on 2.4GHz radios. I know that there is a feature in beta but it unclear how well it works given that it is in beta. Is there any way anyone can see my making this work without using a beta feature?

    Thanks again
    Cheers
