AP 1300 Bridge Design/Change

Answered Question

I have a client w/ an AP 1300 bridged across two buildings (Building A Building B).  Past history - Building A had Internet, Building B did not.  The link was constantly going down, so it was turned off and both locations now have Internet.  From time to time, Building B's Internet goes down (cheaper service) and would like to resurrect the wireless for failover.  There is zero documentation and we found the Air-PWRINJ-BLR2 unit, but cannot find the actual AP unit without climbing into attics.  Is this the unit we use to configure it?  It has a console port - Also the IP's configured on the unit appears to be on the same LAN segment as Building A (192.168.10.250 & 192.168.10.251).  I'd like to place both ends of the wireless bridge (Building's) into a DMZ port and static route route.  How the heck can I accomplish this if the bridge is configured w/ the same LAN segments as Building A?  I have a router w/ multiple ports ready to plug in.

I just need Building B to be able to access the Internet via Building A if their default Internet goes down.

Building A Network

192.168.10.0/24

Building B Network

10.20.190.0/24

I have this problem too.

Hi

yes the console port on the power injector is is console port for the AP. probably the best way to recover the bridge is to connect the 1310 to a laptops etherernet port and use the console port to learn the IP of the 1310 then manage the 1310 with the GUI it can be done with the CLI but if you have not done a wireless bridge before stick with the GUI. Both 1310's need to be on the same subnet, this is for management not for bridging. the bridging is at level 2 unless you use VLANS but with the routers that should not be an issue. once you have configured the Root router save the config and use it to to congigure the non-root router changing the IP address and the role to Non Root. plug the network cables into the the apropriate router ports and you should be set.

this is assuming you know the userid/passwords for the AP's  the default was Cisco/Cisco.

if the antennas are alinged your bridge should be reliable.

based on the signal level between the AP's i would disable the B data rates use the G data rates and possibley disable the higher data rates if the radio stats show to many retrys, mor than 10%.
