Connecting two WAC510 to the same network

I have two WAC510 in my house to improve coverage. I am trying to assign independent SSID to each one. Using the portable application from a mobile device I have created multiple SSID but I dont find a way of assigning them to a specific WAC510. Can someone provide ideas?

Hi @LuisB,

 

There is no option to assign an SSID to the WAC510.  However, you can create an SSID then assign it to a VLAN in the Wireless Settings of the WAC510.  As reference, kindly read pages 35-38 of the WAC510 user manual here about Setting up an Open or Secure WiFi Network.  

 

Also, you can setup a Point-to-Point Wireless Bridging between your 2 WAC510.  Kindly read pages 71-74 of the WAC510 user manual here about Setting up a WiFi Bridge Between Access Points.
