LAN Network based on AmpliFi System: Question
I have a question: does anyone know if I will be able to see all devices connected to switches in the AmpliFi app?
I mean this topology:
Router --- Switch 1:
--- A (I know I will be able to see this device)
--- Switch 2 --- Device B (but could I see this device?)
--- Switch 3 --- Device C (or this device?)
Does anyone know the answer?
Thanks in advance
@amadeusz-lubieński you mean AMPLIFI devices connected through switches? Yes you can see them. I have two switches in-line between my amplifis and they all show up in the app.
@cliff-maier You got me wrong. I guess I was not precise enough: A, B, C are PCs or NAS
@amadeusz-lubieński ah. You mean in the Family tab of the app where it lists devices. Yes. I have many devices connected through two layers of switches and they all show up, including satellite tv boxes, PCs, and two NASs.
@cliff-maier If it is not a big problem: is there a possibility that you could send me a screenshot of those devices connected to switches? Blur some data if you need. That's because SUPPORT TOLD ME THAT DEVICES CONNECTED TO SWITCHES WON'T SHOW UP! Thanks a lot in advance. Of course I only say "please" not "do this"
And second question: you can lease them static IPs?
@amadeusz-lubieński yes some of them have static ips.
(The synology nas’s are connected to the main amplifi through two switches and have static ips)
@cliff-maier Thanks a lot man! I really appreciate it. So in conclusion, to end the topic:
- you can use multiple switches with AmpliFi
- you can edit network settings of each device one by one (even if it's connected to the router with 2 switches between)
@amadeusz-lubieński I can get to the settings screens for each device but haven’t actually tried changing anything. Looks like I can definitely change static IP, renew lease, etc.
@cliff-maier That's enough for me. Thank you, one more time. If all devices are represented individually that's great. I'm planning 10GbE Base-T upgrades. With one managed Netgear switch, and Asus unmaganged ones in two rooms. Wi-Fi to be covered by AmpliFi mesh. And I was curious if I can see all devices in the app, like TV, behind 2 switches. Support told me that EVEN with 1 switch between - it does not work!
All the best and thank you
