I've RTFM'd everywhere but cannot find anything definitive regarding the differences between AP+client versus bridge+bridge modes.
Presume you have a pair of AP1200's. First test case: One is in AP mode and the other is in WGB mode. Second test case: One is in root-bridge mode and the other is in non-root-bridge mode.
In both cases traffic will pass bidirectionally from one Ethernet port to the other. What, then, are the technical differences between these two situations? Do the "bridges" place less load on the AP1200's CPU? Does AP-based operation yield more diagnostic data? What are the advantages and disadvantages of each mode?
I can't find anything that digs into the details. Any help appreciated. Thanks!
