I would like to install a device on a yacht so that when the yacht enters a marina, it can connect to the marina wifi and then make that connection available to the yacht network. I am looking for a cisco device that will do similar to the Smartbridge Nexus (http://www.smartbridges.com/products/accesspoints.asp), which have done the job adequately in the past.
I was thinking of using a 1300 series outdoor unit, does anyone know if I can use it in the way I plan, or if there is an alternative.
Not even sure you can buy 350 bridges any more?!
All you need to do it to buy an AP and put it in workgroup bridge mode. The AP will connect to the network just like any normal WLAN client, away you go!
Whether or not the marina uses thin or thick APs has nothing to do with it - just connect with a WGB and off you go.
