Thanks Rob


That was great information, though I had some querries if you could help me with that.


How is a Root AP different from a Root bridge. Is it that a Root bridge can take part in a Spanning tree topology where as in a Root AP the STP is disaled? I sthis the only difference? In what situations do we need to configure an AP as a rootbridge and not as a Root AP?


Thanks In advance

Sachendra
