Equipments being used:

1) Cisco 2106 WLAN controller

2) Cisco 1131AG access points (LWAPP mode)

3) Cisco catalyst 2950 switch


My setup is as follows:

My access point is registered with the WLAN controller via the switch. When i try to change the mode of the access point to bridge. It does not accept the change. My aim is to create a mesh network using 1131AG access points.So my question is:

Can I setup a mesh network using Cisco 1131AG access point in LWAPP mode or do i need to change them to autonomous mode?

Any documentations or comments will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

You can do this but you need 4.1.191M. It's the code that will enable you to put the AP in bridge mode. Here are the release notes.
