Configure two R600s - configure them to work with eachother

  • Question
  • Updated 2 years ago
I have never touched a ruckus before.   I have two R600's (no additional management program or device).   They are both direct wired to the LAN switch.  Our firewall distributed DHCP.   Do I need to do anything more than just put the same SSID and password for each to see each other or is there some additional mesh/bridge setup I need to configure?

Unless using the Unleashed version of R600, Mesh capabilities require controller management (ZD or SZ).

If they are both wired to your LAN network, you can simply use them in Solo/Standalone mode. 

Same SSID and authentication method, and while clients will re-authenticate when they roam between them,
you can support multiple clients.

apart from ordering info, if your AP's are running firmware version like 200.0.9.9/ & 200.1.9.12 then you are running unleashed solution.
