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.

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.
