E4200 as a Access Point/Bridge Mode

I have spent most of the weekend trying to get this router to act as a proper Access Point.
Has any got this to work correctly?
When it does work (Stay connected) speeds and latency are rotten. If I go back to Routing Mode this thing kicks butt, but I isolate all devices attached to a different subnet and trying to set up proper routes has proved imposable.
Firmware 1.0.2 r 13
The online help stated to connect to the "internet interface" when in Bridge Mode DHCP Server Is not broadcasting to on the wireless or wired interfaces.
If I used the wired interface as the uplink I can broadcast the DHCP to any device on wired but again nothing to the Wireless.
When I "Show Routing Table" I see two static routes pointing to the ATT router for the Wired/Wireless Interfaces..... (my Gateway) Wired/Wireless
(my Gateway) 0.0.0. Wired/Wireless
AP mode should only be working in Broadcast.
By connecting the Wired Interfaces alone up to my switched network should not use the router at all.
If you force all traffic to my router all traffic has to be inspected by the firewall
You create a bottleneck my router interface is 10/100.
ATT 2 Wire Gateway/Router with pinholes. 10/100/1000 Non managed 24 port Switch Network. Server infrastructure serving DNS/DHCP.
I decided to buy this after reading it offered Bridge/Access Point mode instead of getting the WAP610 because I wanted to have the option to change to routing mode or AP mode.
Since my ATT Uverse Router Wireless is “g” it takes forever to transfer files to and from my servers.

OK If this helps... I am running a SOHO
2Wire DSL Router with DHCP Off  Assigned as the Router Gateway IP. NAT Enabled All firewall is being handled via 2Wire. Currently 2Wire WiFi is disabled. For the Linksys E4200
2wire 10/100 interface up-linked into my d-link 24 port 10/100/1000 Layer 2 unmanaged switch.
DHCP and DNS Servers on d-link switch
VOIP on d-link switch
Testing Results WAN Interface Bridge
E4200 up-linked via 10/100/1000 Internet Interface to d-link network switch.
E4200 Internet Interface DHCP assigned using MAC Reserved DHCP
E4200 in Bridge Mode
Devices connected to 4X E4200 Gig Ports do not receive DHCP broadcast IP Address
Device Connected to E4200 WiFi do not receive DHCP BroadcastIP Address
Assign Static IP to my laptop WiFi in the 192.168.100.X range will establish communication but HUGE latency and poor speeds for any traffic internet or internally to any of my servers.
At times the connection gets lost.
In this configuration I get the above stated Route Tables.
If this is layer 2 compliant it should be handing all local subnet traffic via MAC instead of routing.
I have not taken the time to attempt to reconfigure my 2Wire to go into DMZ Plus mode and allow the linksys to handle all routing,  but from previous attempt with my wrt54 it did not go well. I accepted the slow 2Wire WiFi speeds.
It is now getting to the point I am looking for better WiFi to local LAN speeds , I also am looking to do Layer 2 and bypass Routing if I can.
The WAP160 has a 10/100 interface. I prefer gig

    How can I set up a guest access point with a Time Capsule and an Airport Extreme? I am using a Telus router with the Time Capsule used as a wireless access point (bridge mode). I don't want the guest access point to have access to my network.

    The Guest Network function of the Time Capsule and AirPort Extreme cannot be enabled when the device is in Bridge Mode. Unfortunately, with another router...the Telus...upstream on your network, Bridge Mode is indicated as the correct setting for all other routers on the network.
    If you can replace the Telus gateway with a simple modem (that performs no routing functions), you should be able to configure either the Time Capsule or the AirPort Extreme....whichever is connected to the modem....to provide a Guest Network.

  • Guest access in bridge mode

    I want to set up a secure wireless network in our small office that will also allow clients to access the internet while in our waiting area. I also want to maintain our current wired network, which is connected to the internet through a Nortel router, connected to a DSL modem. Where would the Airport extreme be installed? - i.e., upstream or downstream from the router? Also, looking over Apple's network documentation, it appears that the Airport Extreme would be in Bridge mode when configured on an existing ethernet network with router, but the documentation is clear on the issue of setting up guest access in this kind of configuration.
    In case you have not guessed, I am not an IT guy, so will be grateful for any helpful suggestions

    Guest access and bridge mode are incompatible on AirPort base stations. I'd connect an AirPort Extreme to your DSL modem, connect your wired network connections to the Ethernet ports of the AirPort Extreme, and take the Nortel router out of service. Depending on how many wired connections you need, you may also need an Ethernet switch. Besides the WAN port, an AirPort Extreme only has three available Ethernet ports.

  • 1300 Series Access Point/Bridge Power Injector - Using power over ethernet

    Can I use power over ethernet to supply the Injector with power?

    Hi Mikael,
    Sorry, this will not work. Have a look at these specs;
    1300 Series Power
    The access point/bridge receives inline power from the Cisco Aironet Power Injector (hereafter called the power injector). Dual-coax cables are used to provide Ethernet data and power from the power injector to the access point/bridge. The power injector is an external unit designed for operation in a sheltered environment, such as inside a building or vehicle. The power injector also functions as an Ethernet repeater by connecting to a Category 5 LAN backbone and using the dual-coax cable interface to the access point/bridge.
    The power injector is available in two models:
    Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR2 standard version (included with the access point/bridge)
    48-VDC input power
    Uses the 48-VDC power module (included with the access point/bridge)
    Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR2T optional transportation version
    12- to 40-VDC input power
    Note The power injector and the power module must not be placed in an outdoor unprotected environment. The power module must not be placed in a building's environmental air space, such as above a suspended ceiling.
    Dual coaxial cable to run from the power injector to the 1300. See attached notes:
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Access Point/Bridge Power Injector
    The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge Power Injector,converts the standard 10/100 BaseT Ethernet interface that is suitable for weather protected areas to a dual F-Type connector interface for coax cables that are more suitable for harsh outdoor environments. The Power Injector also provides power to the outdoor unit over the same cables with a power discover feature and surge protection. To support longer cable runs from your wireless network switch or router, the Power Injector LR is designed to accommodate up to a 100 meter coaxial cable run plus 100 meters of indoor cat5 cable?enabling total cable runs up to 200 meters. The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge ships with the Power Injector LR2 and an AC power supply.
    From this link:
    Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge Hardware Installation Guide
    Ethernet Ports
    The access point/bridge dual-coax Ethernet ports consists of a pair of 75-ohm F-type connectors, linking the unit to your 100BASE-T Ethernet LAN through the power injector. The dual-coax cables are used to send and receive Ethernet data and to supply inline 48-VDC power from the power injector to the access point/bridge.

  • Access Point Bridge Configuration

    I have two 1262N access points with 5Ghz antennas, and I have configured one of them as a root bridge and the other as a non-root bridge; both using the same ssid.  I have enble both dott11Radio interfaces on each access point.  The problem I am having is that they do not associate.  I have not configured them for any encryption or security.  I just want to make sure the connect before I add any other configuration.  Is there anything else that I need to configure to make them associate.

  • Can an Aironet WiFi Access Point bridge multiple internal VLANs?

    I have Cisco Aironet 2700e access points.  Historically they were configured with a single SSID on both radios with WEP 128bit security.
    I now need to add new WiFi devices to the network that have limited flexibility.  They must be associated only with a specific radio (2.4ghz or 5ghz) and WPA2PSK security.
    My thought was to create two additional SSIDs on the 2700 access points, one for 2.4gz WPA2PSK and the other for 5ghz WPA2PSK.  The pre-existing SSID will continue to use 128bit WEP.  To do that  I need to use VLANs on the 2700e.
    I have no other VLANS on my network.  I only need VLANs on the 2700e because I have different physical devices that support different WiFi frequencies and security options.  I don't need to segment the network.
    How do I bridge the VLANs on the 2700e?
    Devices that connect to the non-native VLANs appear to be isolated from the rest of the network (as I would suspect with VLANs).  But that's not what I want .  I'm only using VLANs because I need multiple SSIDs, and I need multiple SSIDs because I have different physical devices that want different WiFI access point configurations.  I can't seem to find any way to configure the 2700e to bridge the VLANs for the multiple SSIDs.
    Any guidance would be appreciated.  I could buy additional access points but that seems to be defeating the purpose of having a device like the 2700e.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    I made these changes to the example here:
    and it seems to be working.  (By "working" I mean that I can now ping to/from devices connected on different SSIDs.) I had to make these changes from the CLI.  There does not seem to be a way to make these changes from the GUI.  Is that correct? If there is a way to make these changes from the GUI please let me know.
    The changes I made were to make the sub interface for Dot11 radio 0 on the VLANs part of bridge-group 1.  So assuming the config in the example:
    ap(config)#interface Dot11Radio0.2
    ap(config-subif)#no bridge-group 2
    ap(config-subif)#bridge-group 1
    ap(config)#interface Dot11Radio0.3
    ap(config-subif)#no bridge-group 3
    ap(config-subif)#bridge-group 1
    I did not change the bridge group on the Ethernet interface.
    1. Did I create any new problems making this change? It seems to work, but am I going to get myself in trouble somewhere else?  Intuitively it makes sense to me: the VLANs are now part of the same bridge group (1, the native VLAN).  So all traffic should be bridged together.  Correct?
    2. I didn't change the Ethernet sub interfaces.  I don't seem to need to make that change.  I also don't like things sitting out there that I don't understand.  Should I do anything to clean up the Ethernet interfaces?
    3. The original configuration was made entirely from the GUI.  This change needs to be made from the CLI.  Can it be done from the GUI?  I can't seem to find a way to change bridge groups for a sub interface from the GUI. It worried me that it can't be done from the GUI.
    Thank you.

  • Do I need a router or access point / bridge?

    Hi.  We have a MS small bus server with a software firewall.  It does dhcp and routes traffic so we don't need the router part of the router.
    Wireless  N access is needed.  Will a DAP 1522 (Wireless N access point / switch) offer the same wireless performance as a Linksys wireless N router?
    I just bought the DAP access point and am getting 100-130 mb/s with a strong signal.  Would the router work better with its giant antennae?

    DAP 1522 is a good acess point. It  lets you connect up to 4 Ethernet-enabled devices such as set top boxes, game consoles, or computers to an existing Wi-Fi network for on-demand broadcast, online gaming, or media streaming throughout the home.
    With dual-band wireless capabilities, the DAP-1522 is ideal for wireless HD video streaming and gaming applications because entertainment content can be sent over the less crowded 5GHz band.
    The DAP-1522 can also be used to create a new 802.11n wireless network using its Access Point feature. Simply connect it to an existing wired or wireless router, and you'll enjoy greater range and data speeds in seconds.

  • E4200 Bridge Mode + Guest Access?

    I'm trying to set up my E4200 in "Bridge Mode," but want to enable a few things in the wireless settings, such as:
    a) choosing SSIDs and network keys,
    b) enable Guest Access
    I've been able to get things working without too much hassle:
    * factory reset
    * set wireless SSIDs and network keys
    * enable guess access and set password
    * turn on bridge mode
    Everything is basically fine, except that when the device goes into bridge mode it seems that it shuts off *all* web UI. This kind of makes sense, but do I actually understand that correcty? (Or have I simply not found the right connection method?)
    If so, it leads to a couple follow-on questions:
    a) How do I disable Bridge Mode if I want to change any settings? (Is the answer just 'factory reset'?)
    b) Can Guest Access mode work in Bridge Mode?
    So far, I have not been successful in getting the device to display the login page for Guest Access. I'm not sure if that's a config problem with Guest Access or if that just doesn't work in Bridge Mode.
    Any tips/advice appreciated.

    It's not possible to use guest access in bridge mode. Guest access is only possible when the E4200 operates as router. In bridge mode any wireless network goes directly into the same LAN. Guest separation would not be possible.
    Also don't disable the SSID broadcast.
    What I'm saying is that it is possible and that I am doing just that on our LAN here at work.
    You pegged me on the linksys devices not allowing higher subnets. Alas, I am used to using DD-WRT and Tomato for years now (where you can use any subnet mask) and took for granted that I have not seen a stock linksys GUI in a long time. However, in bridge mode on the E4200 you are able to set subnet masks as you wish...

  • Bridge to bridge and bridge to access-point via wireless is it possible.

    here;s my topology i am trying to configure. i have a router whose ethernet is connected to a bridge.this bridge 1 is connected to a bridge 2 via wireless. now i am trying to connect a access-point via wireless to this bridge2. is it possible for bridge 2 to support connectivity to the bridge1 and the access-point both of them via wireless.
    can someone pls help me on this.
    waiting for someone to reply.

    You can set up each radio in the access point for different functionality. Considering the scenario, this can be done by setting up the SSID for the G radio and another SSID for the A radio. Then, set the role in the radio network parameter for the G radio to access point and for the A radio to the root bridge role.
    ou can prevent unauthorized users from reconfiguring your access point/bridge and viewing configuration information. Typically, you want network administrators to have access to the access point/bridge while you restrict access to users who connect through a terminal or workstation from within the local network.
    To prevent unauthorized access to your access point/bridge, you should configure one of these security features:
    Username and password pairs, which are locally stored on the access point/bridge. These pairs authenticate each user before that user can access the access point/bridge. You can also assign a specific privilege level (read only or read/write) to each username and password pair.

  • AC1600 (EA6400) In Bridge mode

    My AC1600 (EA5400) is setup in Bridge mode, all is working correctly except that on the main router which is a Linksys 4200 it will not acknowledge the parental settings, on the EA5400 I only have 3 options Conectivity, Troubleshooting and Wireless. on the 4200 the same 3 settings are plus  Device List, Guest access, Parental Controls, Media Prioritization, Speed test, external storage and security. I am sure if I cascade the routers I will have the options but will have to maintain the Parental Controls on both, is there a setting a am missing that will not allow the Parental settings to work?

    What Parental Controls settings are you trying to do? And which router are trying to set the Parental Controls? If the EA6400 is on Bridge mode, it will have limited settings since most of the settings will only work when on Router mode. I agree on using EA6400 as the main router and cascade the E4200 as an access point. Set the Parental Controls settings on the EA6400.
