i want to create a guest network at another building.
Can we create a guest network ssid on NAP102 on building1 and then mesh om Building2 and Connect a cable from the nap pn building2 into a switch? And then feed cabled computers on building 2 With this guest network? Will it work?

    Hi @Frankiboy,
    The smart mesh is using for extending the wireless coverage in a open space, and the bridge feature will be supported by the Nebula APs which have LAN port like NAP303 in the end of this year. 
    However, the NAP102 doesn't have LAN port, so it will not support bridge mode. 
    Or, if there's network in building 2, you can add the AP to the same site as building 1 and the AP will get the same configuration to use the same guest network SSID.
    Thanks.

    For the briding (coming later this year for AP With lan port); will we be able to choose which "ssid" network which gets bridged?

    Hi @Frankiboy,

    Suppose your deployment would be like
    Ethernet --- Building 1 AP ))) Building 2 AP --- switch --- PC.
    The feature for LAN port bridge will be only impacted in building 2 wired connection but not for wireless SSID.
    When the smart mesh setup, the building 2 AP will receive the configuration of NCC, so you can edit what you want for the AP in building 2. For example, you can edit a SSID for building 2 with tag or enable guest network for the SSID. 
    Please note that it's better to use outdoor AP for two building connection, the APs should be line of sight to connect with smart mesh, and the speed in building 2 will be only half or lower than half of building 1.
    Thanks.
