I've got two cisco 1242 access points both with the same IOS, one is configured as a workgroup bridge and it connects to the other 1242 which is configured as an access point. I'm getting poor data speed between the two. I remember reading somewhere that bridging is done at reduced power on the 1242, is this why the data speed is poor? I get about 2mb/sec between the two. I know antennas and distance come into it but I've tried several different combinations but the most I get is about 2mb/sec. Are there any know settings that increase performance with bridging?
My second question is: is there any difference in performance with these ap's when used with an air-pwrinj or a normal DC adaptor?
