UniFi AP, setting the IP address and VLANs
I have a UniFi setup as a dry run to roll out in September:
The UniFi APs are setup on my Flat network (10.18.9x.xxx) at the moment with Microsoft NPS running RADIUS and seems to work ok.
Along side this I have setup a new Netgear core with 3 VLANs set at the IP range 192.168.9x.xxx range, for testing I have set it to open and Netgear Core as the DHCP , it picks up the relevant IP and a bit more work to let it see the Sonicwall gateway and that should be ticked off my list...but production wise I want to use the NPS / RADIUS on these
I understand that different SSIDs should be seperated into different VLANs but what about the UniFi APs? I have set the APs as 10.18.9x.xxx, controller software and RADIUS server on the same subnet and is simple and working.
I will have 60 APs would this cause excessive broadcast if I have them on my main IP network?
In the UniFi Controller I can set the SSID to point to my RADIUS server (10.18.9x.xxx) and then I could link a VLAN with that SSID (VLAN would be in 192.168.9x.xxx range) would this still work?
Thanks as always
