    AP's in same subnet of users, or in other vlan?

    Hello all. I'll be planning an pilot wifi deployment in my company and I've got a doubt about best practices.

    Should I configure AP's in the same subnet of the users or get it in a mgmt vlan?

    To configure the AP's in the same subnet (10.1.172.0/22)

    10.1.172 .1 - .254 (for AP's)
    10.1.173.1- 174.254 (for users)

    But I was also thinkig to put the AP's in a different vlan, or a mgmt vlan

    10.1.63.1-254 (for AP's)
    10.1.172.1- 174.254 (for users)


    I'll be deploying a aruba 105 AP's

    Same subnet, different IP range (beginning or end of scale). That is how I tend to operate.

    It all depends on what the AP's are able to do

    can thay do 802.11q and vlans
    can the switch gear do 802.11q and vlans
    do you have a router able to route vlans.

    How many clients?

    Are the AP's managed or standalone?

    The Ap's are maneged with a controller, and the swiches can do vlan's and the router is able to route them.

    Clients at the beginning about 50, and then could escalate for 500, same building!!

    I got an infrastruture mode with a central controller and many ap's in the building
