I want to connect a 2950 and a couple of end user devices to my wired network without the expense of running fiber since the distance is more than 100 meters. It is not a great distance. It is all in the same building on a really long dock. So perhaps the distance between the wired network and the remote network is 200 meters. So I am free from environmental conerns like wind/rain/snow.
We've had success setting up a root bridge on the wired network and then connecting the remote switch with a non-root bridge using the 'A' radios on two 1242 access points.
However I'm curious if that is the best way to configure the remote setup. I have also tested putting the remote AP in Workgroup Bridge Mode and it also works.
I've searched but I cannot find a definite answer on which configuration is better.
