I was wondering if the ISR Routers (Cisco 1811w) support the root-bridge and non-root-bridge feature. If not is there another device apart from the 1310 and 1410 bridges that support this feature?

Thank You,

Hi VT,

The ISR AP supports both of these roles;

Access Point Link Role Flexibility

Access Point Link Role Flexibility allows access point radios to operate in a combination of radio roles,

such as access point root, bridge root (with or without clients), bridge nonroot (with or without clients).

This provides a more flexible deployment scheme to support the various applications requirement. Note

that the ISR AP does not support access point repeater and WGB.

Wireless Non-Root Bridge

The wireless non-root bridge allows the access point radio to operate as the remote node in a point to

point or point to multi-point network.

Wireless Root Bridge

The wireless root bridge role provides support for both point-to-point or point to multi-point bridging.

Hope this helps!
