Advice on building a wireless lab
I am tasked to setup 2 wireless setups (netgear and unifi) ready for the users to test with thier devices.
Due to timescales we are not able ro setup VLANs and bring in new switches and lso setup NAP/Radius etc
So my plan is to building a phyiscally seperate network with its own switches(where all the APs would be connected to) and run. Windows server acting as DHCP in a workgroup. The test network would be in turn connected to our Sonicwall E5500 as the gateway and content filtering.
I think setting up a few UniFi will be ok for this test, since I can use a software controller to setup SSIDs etc.
With the Netgears though (WNDAP350) without a controller what do you reckon the best way to set 6 of these up in a windows dhcp workgroup to test internet access? Do those APs need to have unique SSIDs in this case?
