work-mode

work-mode

Function

The work-mode command sets a working mode for an AP wired interface.

The undo work-mode command restores the default working mode for the AP wired interface.

By default,
  • On a common AP: Its GE interfaces work in root mode, Ethernet interfaces in endpoint mode, and Eth-Trunk interfaces in root mode.
  • On a central AP: Its uplink GE interfaces in root mode and downlink GE interfaces work in middle mode.
  • On an R230D: Its Ethernet interface works in root mode.
  • On an R250D, R250D-E, AP2050DN, AP2051DN, AP2051DN-E, R251D, R251D-E and AP2050DN-E: Their uplink GE interfaces work in root mode and downlink GE interfaces in endpoint mode.
  • On an R450D: Its GE interface works in root mode.

Format

work-mode { root | endpoint | middle }

undo work-mode

Parameters

Parameter

Description

Value

root

Sets the working mode of an AP wired interface to root. In this mode, the AP wired interface can connect to an upstream network device such as an AC.

-

endpoint

Sets the working mode of an AP wired interface to endpoint. In this mode, the AP wired interface can connect to downstream network devices or hosts.

Usage Guidelines

Usage Scenario

When working as an uplink interface to connect to an AC, an AP's wired interface must work in root mode. In root mode, the AP's wired interface automatically joins service VLANs and user-specific VLANs (for example, VLANs assigned by the RADIUS server).

When working as a downlink interface to connect to a wired terminal, the AP's wired interface must work in endpoint mode. In endpoint mode, the AP's wired interface does not join any VLAN by default.

When the central AP connects to RUs through downlink GigabitEthernet interfaces, the working mode of the downlink GigabitEthernet interfaces must be set to middle.

When two AP wired interfaces both connect to upstream devices and work in load balancing mode, add the two interfaces to an Eth-trunk interface and set the Eth-trunk interface to work in root mode. In root mode, the two interfaces automatically join service VLANs and user VLANs (for example, VLANs allocated by the RADIUS server).

On a WDS or Mesh WLAN, the AP connects to an AC through wireless connections rather than using wired interfaces; therefore, the wired interfaces of an AP become idle. When two AP wired interfaces both connect to downstream devices and work in load balancing mode, add the two interfaces to an Eth-trunk interface and set the Eth-trunk interface to work in endpoint mode. In endpoint mode, wired interfaces of the AP do not join any VLAN.

Follow-up Procedure

After the configuration is complete, restart the AP to make the configuration take effect.

Example

# Set the working mode of an Eth-trunk interface to endpoint.
