It is sufficient to give all the APs identical wireless settings (SSID, password, security, protocols), but different channels. That way, as long as you have the APs on the same physical network (and only one DHCP server in that network!), your devices should automatically start roaming from one AP to another. Note that the setup needs to be identical ...

It's 256 -2. The fact that the switches exist doesn't reduce the number of available ip addresses. The switches don't require ip addresses. If you did assign them ip addresses then that would be subtracted from the 254. If you assign an ip address to the switches then that reduces the number of remaining available ip addresses, just as it does when ...

If correctly configured then there's no actual L3 routing going on here - only L2 switching, so they wouldn't need IP interfaces (well other than for management obviously), but you don't provide enough information to speak about the specifics of this setup.

There are many mesh style Wi-Fi systems that are built to do this like open mesh or ubiquity unifi, but your setup would theoretically work, save the part regarding the channels. You want all the aps to be hardcoded onto different channels so as not to cause interference.

No. Multicast packets are sent to a special address where only the devices in the group are listening at. This is independent of your main (unicast) IP address. The multicast IP address is tied to the devices' MAC address on the network fabric (AKA switch infrastructure) and not to their main IP address. So effectively your multicast traffic won't be ...

You VPN administrator can enable/disable split tunneling from the VPN concentrator end. Even if you do mess with the gateways on your local machine, while connected to the VPN, I believe the Cisco client does whatever the policy tells it to do from the endpoint in your office. Ask the VPN admin about it...I'm sure he/she will be happy to give you an ...

ANSWER: In the above configuration the switches in the design are functioning as layer two switches, not layer three. In the simplest implementation they are not performing any Layer 3 tasks, though in some circumstances there might be useful Layer 3 features you might want to implement depending on the specific design. Some of those features might require ...

First let me start out by adding just a bit of info. It looks like you intend all IPs to be private network addresses. The IPs that start with 172 must belong to 172.16.x.x - 172.31.x.x for them to be considered private. Since this is just a packet tracer lab, this doesn't really matter. Some of the commands I am entering might be unnecessary if you don't ...
