I'm just starting to setup 2 1310s as a bridge for the first time. I've setup some basic settings through the web interface: IP settings on the BVIs, single SSID, and no security (yet). Also, I've set one as a root-bridge and the other as a non-root bridge. Things seem to look good so far on the root bridge, but when I try to enable the the dot11 interface on the non-root bridge, I keep getting the following message in the log:
%LINK-5-CHANGED: Interface Dot11Radio0, changed state to reset
%DOT11-4-CANT_ASSOC: Interface Dot11Radio0, cannot associate: No Response
I guess the first obvious question is: should I be able to establish a wireless signal without the external antennas? I don't have the external antennas yet, but my understanding is that I can establish a wireless signal without them as long as the 2 1310s are fairly close together; right now they are in my lab only a couple feet apart.
If my assumption is correct, what am I missing here?
