Connect RB Mikrotik and Cisco AP

I will share a tutorial on how to connect the Router a million people that is Mikrotik with the access point from Cisco Vendor named Aironet

okay we will just explain a little bit about Access Point ( AP ) Aironet from Cisco

Introduction with Cisco Access-Point Aironet
In Cisco Aironet there are 2 modes for operational:

1. Lightweight Access Point ( LAP ), in LAP for operational use Controller for centralized AP management, called WLC
2. Autonomous Access Point ( AAP) or sometimes called “Standalone” ^ _ ^, in the AAP, is not required Controller, so each AP has their own management

To make Access Point into AAP we need a special IOS that supports the AP.
because the Aironet AP there are two operational modes as I have mentioned before,

1. IOS that supports LAP in IOS naming no code W8
2. IOS that supports the AAP in IOS naming no code W7

For more details please refer to the Link It

To topology we will practice this time the AAP Operational Mode and the form of topology as follows:

Steps were taken on Mikrotik GW
1. Here I am using RB CCR1016-12G, I assume that the GW Router is connected to the Internet.

2. Create a DHCP Server

Steps were taken on Cisco Aironet
1. I assume AP Aironet has become the initial
Config standalone using Console to provide IP Address to the AP.
Normally the default password of Aironet is “Cisco”

In the Show version, it can be seen that the IOS we use is version / ap3g1-k9 w7 – xx.153-3.JAB

– Add IP Address, and make sure it’s UP status

– Next, we will do the Configuration through the Web base by using IP Address 192.168.0.253 which has been added to the AP.

– Here I am using Cisco Aironet series AIR-CAP3502E-C-K9 dual-band, therefore I will enable both wireless

It should be the two SSIDs that we have added to the list

Next back to Home tab> Radio0-802.11N 2.4Ghz> Settings> enable> apply

– Do the same thing with “Radio0-802.11N 5Ghz”

Note: If the apply does not get the response from AP
Do the Reboot or Logout process
After that login again

– Make sure everything is green which means AP 2Ghz and 5Ghz are active

– To find out if the AP we have made is successful, I myself have provided an external Antenna type that supports dual-band.

There are two SSIDs with two Freqs. different
