Can AP 1242 act as a Wireless Bridge

Unanswered Question
Sep 8th, 2008

I have an AccessPoint (Cisco 1242) that has no Ethernet connection available.

Is it possible to use one 802.11a interface of the neighbor Access Point as bridge so that the Access point without Ethernet connection can get a connection?

I have this problem too.

You can setup the ap as a WGB or an repeater connecting to the network using the 5ghz side. With a WGB, that ap with no ethenet will have to connect up to a switch and then users can connect to that switch. Repeater can associate wireless clinets on the 2.4GHz, but throughput is cut in half when setup as a repeater. Here is a link:
