Clients that pass MAC layer Edit

Any wireless access point that does client mode should work eg dlink dwl900, or pheenet from solwise, or linksys wet11 or wet54.

IP addressed will be issued from the Mesh, and the MAC address of the ethernet cards in the PC's will be passed through.

You can always use another router with NAT back to back with the Client Access point if you want to issue internal IP addresses. In that case, just authenticate router MAC against the realm.

   Hi there anyone know of a reliable client that can be brought in the uk,
   that passes the MAC layer, The phee-net wap11 does, but as reliable as
   windows.
   Senao 2611 block mac layer, any one tried any other senaos???
   need to use a wireless client to feed a switch in a multi office building,
   multi clients, so can't use a senao 2611, if we want to offer different
   speeds. Do not want to use another mesh box, we have one feeding the local
   area from the roof, just wanted to make use of the signal.

I hate to sound like a salesman, but the Deliberant units I've taken a liking to would likely be a good choice as well. When these units are properly configured, they act as routers. The outdoor receiver pulls an IP address from the mesh, and it gives the clients a 192.168.2.x address by default (or any address if you need to change that).

This also helps when you have more than one AP that is visible to the client. These work much better than Senao 2611's.

Ethernet router wan onto a CB3 Edit

just stick an ethernet router WAN port onto a CB3 you are looking at GBP30ish from solwise in the UK for a 4 port device with basic QoS too :)

That's all fine if you want to use password auth and not mac auth for indevidual clinets.

Subject: Re: [MeshAPuser] Clients that pass MAC layer One imagines that if it is offices that are being supplied, and the wires are secure, then it should not be necessary to authenticate each client to the internet, only the router for each office that they are passing through, you can use a different router for each office, each one authenticating on MAC, and getting a differnt calss of bandwidth.

You mention that the mesh is on the roof. if there is a cabling route, and if the mesh box is a repeater, you could run wires from Eth0 and set wired captive portal.
