1142 as repeater

                   Hello,

When i try to configure a Cisco 1142 as a repater, i dont have the option infrastructure-ssid:

Repetidor_1140#show ip int b
Interface                  IP-Address      OK? Method Status                Protocol
BVI1                       unassigned      YES DHCP   down                  down
Dot11Radio0                unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down
Dot11Radio1                unassigned      YES unset  administratively down down
GigabitEthernet0           unassigned      YES other  up                    down
Repetidor_1140#conf t
Enter configuration commands, one per line.  End with CNTL/Z.
Repetidor_1140(config)#interface dot11radio0
Repetidor_1140(config-if)#ssid fc_repeater
Repetidor_1140(config-if-ssid)#infrastruture-ssid
                                        ^
% Invalid input detected at '^' marker.

Repetidor_1140(config-if-ssid)#infr
Repetidor_1140(config-if-ssid)#infr?
% Unrecognized command
Repetidor_1140(config-if-ssid)#?
ssid configuration commands:
  dot1x  SSID Config Commands for IEEE 802.1X

Repetidor_1140(config-if-ssid)#

What could be the problem:

Here is the version of access-point:

Repetidor_1140#show ver

Re: 1142 as repeater

Why do you need this command? The infrastructure ssid should be configured on the original AP. configuring it on the repeater does not matter because it is a repeater anyway that repeats the signal and does not do any processing

Re: 1142 as repeater

Because i need to configure de C1142 as a repeatear, like says the Cisco documentation.

This example shows how to set up a repeater access point with three potential parents:

AP#

configure terminal

AP(config)#

interface dot11radio 0

AP(config-if)#

ssid chicago

AP(config-ssid)#

infrastructure-ssid

AP(config-ssid)#

exit

AP(config-if)#

station-role repeater

AP(config-if)#

dot11 extensions aironet

AP(config-if)#

parent 1 0987.1234.h345 900

AP(config-if)#

parent 2 7809.b123.c345 900

AP(config-if)#

parent 3 6543.a456.7421 900

AP(config-if)#

end

Re: 1142 as repeater

You should be able to enter the infrastructure-ssid under the global dot11 ssid ssid command.

Below are usage guidelines for using the infastructure-ssid from the 12.4.25.JA command reference:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4.25d.JA/Command/reference/cr12425d-chap2.html#wp2455992

Usage Guidelines

This command controls the SSID that access points and bridges use when  associating with one another. A root access point only allows a repeater  access point to associate using the infrastructure SSID. A root bridge  only allows a non-root bridge to associate using the infrastructure  SSID. Repeater access points and non-root bridges use this SSID to  associate with root devices. The infrastructure SSID must be assigned to  the native VLAN. It cannot be assigned a non-native VLAN.

For configurations using the CLI, the infrastructure-ssid command is not a requirement unless multiple SSIDs are configured on the radio. In this case the infrastructure-ssid command  is used to identify the SSID a non-root bridge uses to connect to the  uplink. Other non-infrastructure SSIDs are used for client association  to the non-root bridge.

However, using the GUI requires that the infrastructure ssid be  configured for repeaters, workgroup bridges, and non-root bridges. The  goal of the CLI is to provide the maximum flexibility while the GUI  provides the minimum working configuration for the purpose of ease of  use.
