HWIC AP and HWIC 4ESW Bridging ?? Problem

Unanswered Question
Aug 2nd, 2007

Hi,

I wonder if anyone can help - I'm trying to setup both a HWIC-4ESW Switch and a HWIC-AP Access Point to work together in the same 1841 router chassis.

What I want to achieve is that clients on both the wired and wireless interfaces are on the same subnet and LAN and can therefore communicate together. At the moment I can only get one or the other to work (Internet Connectivity is fine):

!

interface Dot11Radio0/0/0

no ip address

ip virtual-reassembly

!

encryption mode ciphers tkip

!

encryption vlan 1 mode ciphers tkip

!

ssid aspremont

authentication open

authentication key-management wpa

guest-mode

wpa-psk ascii 7 ***************

!

speed basic-1.0 basic-2.0 basic-5.5 6.0 9.0 basic-11.0 12.0 18.0 24.0 36.0 48.0 54.0

channel 2437

station-role root

no cdp enable

end

interface Vlan1

ip address 192.168.1.1 255.255.255.0

ip nat inside

ip virtual-reassembly

end

!

no ip dhcp use vrf connected

no ip dhcp conflict logging

ip dhcp excluded-address 192.168.1.1 192.168.1.99

!

ip dhcp pool DHCP_ADDRESS_POOL

network 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0

dns-server ********* ************

default-router 192.168.1.1

Unfortunately the IOS version I'm using: 12.4(11)T has some bugs with SDM, so I can see the config in the GUI but not modify it (I don't have access to later version).

I've tried bridging to another interface, adding a vlan to the ssid and a few other things, to no avail.

It must be possible though, as this basically what Home Wireless Routers are doing.

Any help is appreciated.

I have this problem too.

No replies but the fix was fairly simple (after a few hours of fiddling).

Create a bridged virtual interface, place both interfaces in the bridge group of this interface, then treat this interface as a normal internal interface (as the inside NAT i/f for example.

A lot of the bridge commands are added automatically after placing the interface in a bridge group:

A Bridged interfaced and bridge irb:

ip dhcp pool DHCP_ADDRESS_POOL

network 192.168.1.0 255.255.255.0
