Hi guys,


Can WAP200E repeat with other AP models? I think it should be working with other models as the signal should be the same in different APs. Is that correct ?


Regards,

Henry

Sir,


Thank you for visiting Cisco Community Forum.


Note: For the AP Client and Wireless Bridge Modes, the remote access point must be a second Linksys Wireless-G Access Point. For the Wireless Repeater mode, the remote wireless bridge must be a second Linksys Wireless-G Access Point or Wireless-G Router.


The WAP200E uses WDS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wireless_Distribution_System) - WDS may be incompatible between different products (even occasionally from the same vendor) as it is not certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance

It may be possible to bridge different models if they also use WDS where you can match up the MAC addresses on both sides.


Thanks,

Jeff.
