Hi to all,

i have a wlc 4402 and i need to configure a point to point link with two air-lap1310g-e-k9, i have found on this link:

but on the wlc configuration page i cannot found some configuration step.

Someone have configured this type of behaviour or can give me some hints?!

How can i configure on the wlc the parameter about the bridges configuration?! Or i must configure the bridges overriding the global configuration?!

Thanks and best regards,

Carlo Sagratella.

Unfortunately, PTP bridging is not supported in Cisco LWAPP. You'll need to downgrade the 1310Gs to Autonomous.

The link you provided is referring to Mesh, which is only supported on Cisco 1500-series access points. The 1310G does not support Mesh, and so it cannot be used for bridging in LWAPP Mode.

Does that also hold true for the LWAPP 1242 AP?

Correct. You cannot create PTP bridges in an LWAPP environment.

The correct thing to do would be to downgrade the 1310's to autonomous (or 1242's) and set up a root bridge and non-root bridge.

Alternately however, if you REALLY wanted one of the points to be LWAPP, in theory you could always make one of the Access Points Autonomous and join it as a workgroup bridge to the LWAPP AP. However, there really is no reason to do that since it would be cleaner to convert both to autonomous.

For an IOS 1242, can you bridge amongst all three interfaces, that is, the A radio, the G radio and the UTP ethernet ?
