Using 1310 bridge w/ 350 bridges

Unanswered Question
Nov 15th, 2007

I have a wireless network of Aironet 350 bridges with one root bridge and seven non-root bridges that connect to it. I recently had one non-root bridge die on me and I replaced it with the only spare 350 I had.

I have one 1310 bridge that was given to me, and am wondering will it communicate fine with my 350 bridges? I've been looking at it briefly and the first thing I notice different is that on the 350 bridges I had to specify either the radio or ethernet interface as the "primary port". I don't see such a setting on the 1310.

Thanks for any information/advice you guys can give me.

I have this problem too.

Think it should be OK although obviously you will still only get 11MB. The primary port settings isn't applicable on the 1310.

Thanks for the information.

If I would replace my root 350 with a 1310 and several (but not all) of my non-root 350s, would all the 1310s communicate at 54 Mbps, with the 350s still talking to the root 1310 at 11 Mbps?

No, I don't think you will get more than 11MB as you'll have a mix of 11B and 11B devices and the root bridge will only only operate at B speesds.
