I just spent the whole day going through the old posts and can not find anything that is relevant to our issue.
We just purchased batch of 20 1230 11b APs to be used a root APs in our wireless network. Our users connect to our network using non-Cisco APs as using "AP Client" mode of the AP. Some APs have combined "AP Client/Repeater" and this is where we have issues associating these users to the 1230 APs.
Mind you that the APs that have "AP client" mode or the USB WIFI adapters have no trouble connecting to the Cisco unit. Onlt the APs with combined "AP Client/Repeater" or "Repeater" modes do not associate.
So far we tested non-Cisco AP such as Dlink, Netgear and Trendnet.. none of them worked as a repeater.
Does any one any experiance with this?
Update: We also did some testing and tried to create a bridge between Cisco and non-Cisco AP without any luck. Again all 3 brands have been tested.
