I am using 12.3(8)JEB1 on a 1232 AP. I have the following config:

dot11 ssid cmcrf

authentication open


interface Dot11Radio0

no ip address

no ip route-cache


encryption key 1 size 40bit 7 <snip> transmit-key

encryption mode wep mandatory


ssid cmcrf


station-role workgroup-bridge

mobile station period 20 threshold 70

bridge-group 1

bridge-group 1 spanning-disabled


interface BVI1

ip address dhcp

no ip route-cache


bridge 1 route ip

The workgroup bridge associates fine with a parent AP, but when I connect my laptop to the FE0 port, I can only ping the AP. I cannot ping past the AP (e.g. the gateway.)

I am using WLC code

Hi Steven,

My understanding of the WGB with LWAPP config was that support was only added in WLC Have a look;

Workgroup bridge (WGB) support - Cisco Aironet autonomous access points operating in WGB mode can now associate to Cisco Aironet lightweight access points (except Cisco Airespace AP1000 series access points) to provide an 802.11 wireless connection to wired devices. The WGB is supported only in client mode and not in infrastructure mode and must run Cisco IOS Release 12.4(3g)JA or later (on 32-MB access points) or Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEB or later (on 16-MB access points). WGB functionality is not supported for use with hybrid REAP.

The autonomous WGB access point learns the MAC address of the wired client and then informs the lightweight access point and controller that the device is operating on the wireless network. This scenario provides transparent bridging for wired clients and secure roaming.

From these release notes;
