Requirements: 2 DSL lines feeding 1 RF link to 2 Access Points with customers We did not want heavily congested AP's, and we wanted to have separate IP ranges for each group of customers.

Schematic:

Here's the code done using Winbox:

Ether1 on Board 1 will only pass traffic to Ether1 on Board 2 Ether2 on Board 1 will only pass traffic to Ether2 on Board 2

3 IP addressing schemes are used: 10.10.222.xxx for the Ether1 path 192.168.1.xxx for the Ether2 path 172.16.0.xxx and 172.17.0.xxx for use only by the WLAN boards and the EOIP tunnels

Board 1, Source

First get the wireless link to work Set the Wireless connection to AP Bridge, no WDS, No default bridge. Set the 5 ghz to 5ghz – 10 mhz. Turn Nstream on.

IP Address 10.10.222.233/24 ether1 IP Address 172.16.0.1/24 wlan1 Add EOIP tunnel 1. Set the IP address to the Board 2 address, 172.16.0.2 Add a bridge. Set the ports to ether1 and the EOIP tunnel 1

Ip address 192.168.1.10/24 ether2 Ip address 172.17.0.1/24 wlan1 Add EOIP tunnel 2. Set the ip address to the board 2 address, 172.17.0.2 Add a bridge. Set the ports to ether2 and EOIP tunnel 2

Board 2, Client

Set the wireless connection to Station, no wds, no default bridge Set the 5 ghz to 5ghz – 10 mhz. Turn Nstream on.

Ip address 10.10.222.234/24 ether1 IP address 172.16.0.2/24 wlan1 Add EOIP tunnel 1. Set the IP address to the Board 1 address, 172.16.0.1 Add a bridge. Set the ports to ether 1 and the EOIP tunnel 1

Ip address 192.168.1.11/24 ether2 Ip address 172.17.0.2/24 wlan1 Add EOIP tunnel 2. Set the ip address to the board 1 address, 172.17.0.1 Add a bridge. Set the ports to ether2 and EOIP tunnel 2

I hope this helps you!
