Using Yagi's, low loss cable, antenna outside, AP inside.

When operating autonomous 1250 series in root/non-root bridge mode, can I use 802.11N radios? Is it supported?

Or would it be better to use 1242's? This is for a customer, no time for testing, need rock solid design, in and out configuration...

No.

This statement contradicts itself.  "rock solid design" and "no time for testing" is like oil and water.

@leolaohoo -


I was just  asking for a definitive answer, weather its affirmative or negative, is there a benefit to using the 1252 over the 1242 giving the cost of each, since as you said the 802.11N can not be used to bridge, than I would say a 1242 is better fit for the AP bridge of 350', clear line of site over the 1252.

Now that you've put it that way, sure.  Using 1242 makes sense.
