Quick question. I have a customer that wants to deploy ethernet into 9 buildings. The issue is we can't physically cable them together. We have looked at a Cisco 1300 bridge deployment with 1200 series AP's in each remote building, but there's is no line of site back to the root bridge for half of the buildings. I also suspect with a 9 client multipoint bridge i'm going to have 802.11 channel issues, and probably rubbish performance. Even with two root bridge's i'm still going to channel overlap issues on 802.11b/g.
If we go 1200 series AP's using a WLC and Mesh licensing, we can can easily provide coverage and wireless connectivity for backhaul, but I don't have any wireless users. Can I use the Ethernet port on the AP's to deliver a LAN segment into each building and use the mesh function to bridge this segment?
