Wirless bridging

Unanswered Question
May 17th, 2007

I am looking to connect a remote location to our main LAN via a wireless bridge (Cisco 1310). I was going to use a WAP (Cisco 1100) at the facility end but someone told me that a bridge can only communicate with another bridge.

I am only looking at the remote location to send data to a machine on the LAN. No communication is sent back.

Is this true?

If this is the case, then I would have to use (2) Cisco 1310's correct?


I have this problem too.

2 x 1310 would be best although you can use a 1200/1230/1240 series AP and set it to work as a bridge BUT you can only do this if you mount the 1200/1230/1240 internally and mount an antenna externally (they aren't waterproof!)

According to the IEEE 802.11s bridges and APs are different devices. However there are certain vendors who have added bridging functionality to AP and AP's funcationality into bridges e.g. Cisco 1310 bridges.

In your condition, 2 1310 bridges will be suitable.
