Access Point in bridging mode.

Hi,
I have tow APs (AP1242AG) that have the two radios (the 802.11g and the 802.11a radios) configured in bridge mode.
Can I do this?
The problem is that one of them put the radio interface (802.11a radio interface in “reset”. And there is no connectivity between the two routers.
Can you help me?
Please.
Thanks in advance,
Rui Capão

    Using a TFTP Server to Return to a Previous Release
    Note This section does not apply to Cisco C3201WMIC and Cisco C3201LAP.
    Follow these steps to revert from LWAPP mode to autonomous mode by loading a Cisco IOS release using a TFTP server:
    Step 1 The static IP address of the PC on which your TFTP server software runs should be between 10.0.0.2 and 10.0.0.30.
    Step 2 Make sure that the PC contains the access point image file (such as c1200-k9w7-tar.122-15.JA.tar for a 1200 series access point) in the TFTP server folder and that the TFTP server is activated.
    Step 3 On the PC where the TFTP server is located, perform these steps:
    a. Disable any software firewall products, such as Windows firewall, ZoneAlarm firewall, McAffee firewall, or others.
    b. Ensure all Windows files are visible. From Windows Explorer, click Tools > Folder Options > View > Show hidden files and folders.
    Step 4 Rename the access point image file in the TFTP server folder to c1200-k9w7-tar.default for a 1200 series access point, c1130-k9w7-tar.default for an 1130 series access point, c1240-k9w7-tar.default for a 1240 series access point, and c1250-k9w7-tar.default for a 1250 series access point.
    Step 5 Connect the PC to the access point using a Category 5 (CAT5) Ethernet cable.
    Step 6 Disconnect power from the access point.
    Step 7 Press and hold MODE while you reconnect power to the access point.
    Step 8 Hold the MODE button until the status LED turns red (approximately 20 to 30 seconds) and then release.
    Step 9 Wait until the access point reboots, as indicated by all LEDs turning green followed by the Status LED blinking green.
    Step 10 After the access point reboots, reconfigure it using the GUI or the CLI.

  • Wirelessly adding a new device: Router versus Access Point versus Bridge

    My home network consists of a Linksys WRT54GS Wireless router with a couple hardwired PC and a wireless laptop. I want to wirelessly connect my TiVo into this network to download saved video onto the hardwired PCs, and to give my TiVo access to the internet (it currently uses a phone line). It looks to me like the choices to include the TiVo into my home network are to connect it (wired) to:
    (1) a Wireless Access Point (WAP54G),
    (2) a Wireless Bridge (WET54G), or
    (3) another Linksys Router (WRT54G) configured as WAP (router mode rather than gateway).
    Are all three options above valid options? If so I would like to understand what the differences between these choices are, and under what circumstances would one be better than the other.
    As part of this, is there a reason the Linksys Routers are much cheaper than the WAP or Bridge hardware. This is counter-intuitive since the Router appears to be the more complex hardware with multiple connectors, more memory, etc.
    Thanks.

    Well i would suggest you to get an Access point WAP54G as it works wirelessly & you will be able to use many pc's using it without a router.With WET54G you need to connect using the hardwired cable & you need to connect it using the cables to the pc's & configure it.With router you need another router & you can configure it accordingly in a wireless mode to make it act as an access point.

  • Silly doubt abt access-points and bridges

    hi all i have read cisco doc wherein clients connecting to access-points and also where the cisco access-point is working like a bridge and still clients can connect to it .
    then any specific reason why people generally connect clients to access-points.
    i mean is there any benefit of either method over the other.
    any help and guidance would be really helpful.
    regards
    sushil

    In short, it is preferred to have users connect to access points.... 99% of the time. You can use a wireless bridge (that is associated to an AP) that is connected to a switch/hub to supply network connectivity to wired users off the switch/hub. There are also access points that can be used as a bridge for building point to point connectivity.
    Look at the home users with wireless.... it allows then to move from place to place (as long as there is coverage) without having to be wired in.

  • Cisco 1200 Access Points as Bridges - Won't work

    I could use some help. I have a pair of Cisco 1200 AP's that I'm trying to use as bridges.
    I have selected one as a Root Bridge, the other as Non-Root. The non-root shows the wireless interface down and the log reveals 'no association'.
    I have verified NO security, identical SSID's, broadcast SSID, no encryption, no WEP, they are sitting 10 feet apart, same channels, etc. etc.
    Can a 1200 access point serve as a bridge?

    I went to Security > SSID Manager and selected the only SSID as the infrastructure SSID and it did nothing. If there is another place to toggle 'Infrastructure SSID' on and off other than by assigning one, I'm unaware of it.
    Any other ideas?
    Thanks.

  • How to Access E900 in Bridge mode?

    Hi All,  My ISP gave me Static IP i.e. 10.XXX.XXX.XX range.  (I can connect to Internet directly on any PC or router in Static Mode).  Now i have got E900 and want to put same in Bridge mode.  (Reason i want to use Router B as DHCP & NAT).  I get 2 option .. 1. Automatically Assign IP 2. Specify IP address .    whenever i choose Automatically Obtain . I am not able to browse setup page of Router E900 . and even i tried to specify an IP (192.XX) . it was not able to detect Setup/admin page of router.  Even i didn't find any entry in arp -a.  Any idea., what would be IP of Router in Bridge mode.  I had to reset router to see Setup/Admin page.  Thanks in advance.    

    You need to specify an IP address in the range in your main host router, i.e. set 192.168.1.50. Then connect the LAN wire from the E900 to the main host routers LAN port. Disable all DHCP services and firewalls on the e900. Once the e900 is up and running. You should be able to connect to the E900s web page from a PC at 192.168.1.50 http://www.northshore-it.com/tips/how-tos/cascade_linksys/#LAN_to_LAN For wireless bridge mode, you should set Auto Obtain. However you should have a next option to enter in what wireless SSID name to connet to assumeing that this is wireless bridging. Wireless bridging needs specify a wireless SSID name and PW to connect to on the main host router. Does this model router support wireless bridging? 

  • E71 Different Access Points for different modes?

    Hi
    I have just got the E71 and think it's a really good phone. I have a question about the two different modes that the E71 can switch from and to.
    I would like to be able to have a "Home Mode" and an "Away Mode".
    The Home Mode would use a default WLAN connection for web and push email.
    The Away Mode would use a mobile web connection from my mobile provider for web browsing and push email etc.
    Is this possible at all?
    I have tried changing the incoming mail connection setting on one of the modes but when I switch to the other mode the incoming mail settings are what was set in the previous mode.
    Hope that made sense?
    Thanks in advance

    Hi,
    I have a requirement of installing 1400 outdoor access point in bridge mode .
    client has got three remote offices which will be connected through 1400 outdoor access point.
    but i came across about lightweight and autonomous version where i am quite confused.
    which version is available in market especially for 1400
    If i could get information about 1500 also , it would be great help .
    If i want to connect all the remote offices in brigde mode . which will be convinient for me ?
    If I could get any link with datasheet for both the access point seperately, it would be great.

    Hi,
    1500 is for MESH network.. 1400 is for bridging in autonomous mode.. most of the time we use 1400 for bridging between two diffrent sites..
    1400 bridges do not work in LWAPP mode.. its always Autonomous.. where in the 1500 canot work in autonomous as well and needs a WLC..
    here is the datasheets for 1400 and 1500..

  • Router, access point, very CONFUSED. HELP

    The Plan:
    In my living room I have a modem/router (at&t supplied) which produces wifi for my home. In my family room I have an older version of the Xbox 360 with no wireless capabilities. Without buying a 100 ft (the rooms are not exactly close to each other)ethernet cable and running it under the house, I'd rather find some way to send a wireless signal from a router to a physical (access point/router?) which will be located next to the Xbox that it can hard wire to.
    Equipment at my disposal:
    WRT54G ver.6
    WAP54G ver.2
    Question:
    Is it possible to do what I want with the equipment I have? The more I dive into websites about it the more confused I get. Access points, client bridge mode, client mode, repeater, etc. I just have no idea what to do, any ideas?

    Those devices that you have will work but it is not an assurance that those two devices will give you the best performance since those are only wireless-G devices.  What you can do is to set the WRT54G v6 as the main router that will broadcast a wireless signal to that other room; set the WAP54G v2 as an access point client so that it will act as the wireless adapter for your Xbox. To test if the router’s signal will reach to that room then you need to use a laptop and check if the laptop could pick the signal. 

  • Bridging with 1131 Ag series access point.

    Hi,
    I want to use 1131 AG series access point for bridging between two buildings which are 20 metres apart from each other.
    Is it possible and what are the limitation for this design?
    Please help.
    thanks in advance.
    Pulkit Sharma

    Hi Pulkit,
    The autonomous 1130AG series access point supports these operating wireless modes:
    ? Root access point?Connected to a wired LAN and supports wireless clients.
    ? Repeater access point?Not connected to a wired LAN, associates to a root access point, and supports wireless clients
    ? Workgroup bridge?Not connected to a wired LAN, associates to a root access point or bridge, and supports wired network devices.
    As this unit was not designed to be use outdoors, having a clean RF line of sight is really difficult. To be honest I do not think this unit was designed to connect two remote buildings even if the units are indoors. I would look for APs with detachable antennas like the 1242AG or the 1200 modular series so you can use external antennas and bridging roles.
    Hope it helps,
    Roger Carpio.

  • Need to disable AP mode multicast in 1231 series access point

    Hi
    I have one controller 2504 and some 1200 series access points.I am using 3 SSID .I want to use two ssid in HREAP mode but HREAP mode is not showinh in access point because multicast is enabled on AP mode.Please see the below picture
    I have disabled the multicast globally from CLI.
    config network multicast global disabled
    Please help me in disabling the multicast so that i can set the access point in HREAP mode.
    Thanks ....

    Hi George
    I have found a document in which it is mentioned which platform are supported..
    These are the restrictions to remember while you use H-REAP.
    Hybrid REAP is supported only on the 1130AG, 1140, 1240, 1250, 1260,           AP801, AP 802, 1040, and AP3550 APs and on the Cisco WiSM, Cisco 5500, 4400,           2100, 2500, Flex 7500 Series Controllers, the Catalyst 3750G Integrated           Wireless LAN Controller Switch, and the Controller Network Module for           Integrated Services Routers.
    But why it is giving an remark on controller tab that multicast is not supported with HREAP on this platform ?
    Is this the limitation of cisco 2504 controller or the limitation of 1231 access point ?
    Does that mean i can use my SSID in HREAP mode if i am using 1231 series access point ?
    Thanks...

  • Does wIPS mode Access point utilize more Bandwidth?

    Hi all,
    I have around six number of Cisco 1252 Access Points on HReap mode and wIPS submode in one particular location. This was implemented more than six months and it was working fine. Suddenly, I faced Network conjestion and more bandwidth utilization in that location in particular. But, after disabling the wIPS in the AP, The bandwidth got stable and working fine. Not sure, if wIPS will utilize more bandwidth.. Please clarify on the same..
    Also please let me know if this will be anywhere related to the RF Heat maps that Cisco NCS will generate? As there is no map uploaded for that location, Will this cause an issue? Need more understanding on this. Please share if any document or information is available.

  • Mode button disabled on access points

    I'm working with a customer that has several Cisco 1230s with the mode button disabled. Is there anyway to recover these access points? The previous admin changed the usernames/passwords on the access points before leaving, and now we cannot reset the access points with the mode button to reconfigure them.

    The AP MODE button is configured from your Cisco Wireless LAN Controller.
    On the WLC use the following commands:
    1) config ap rst-button enable /all
    2) show ap config general

  • N bridge between two 1252an in bridge mode at 5GHz

    I've read in some of the cisco documentation on the 1250 series that root bridge or non root bridge modes are "not tested". They don't say "not supported". I have a client that could use a high bandwidth link between two buildings that are 100' or so apart. The fiber link has already been busted twice. Heavy heavy trucks kill the ground concrete. I have configed a 54Mbps solution with two 1242G's and some cisco yagi's. But, if an N bridge is possible with two 1252AG's, and go faster than the 54Mbps..I'd go with that setup.
    Cisco documentation says the bridge modes show up in the 1252 webgui and are selectable. They just end it with "not tested".
    Any thoughts?

    It became supported in recent versions of the 1250 IOS.
    |With this feature, the Cisco Aironet 1140 and 1250 Series can be configured for both access point and bridge functions. Bridging support on 802.11n access points offers added performance, reliability and throughput for basic wireless LAN coverage, wireless LAN coverage with wireless backhaul, and more traditional bridging applications.|
