1242's bridge mode wired switch

Is there a way to set up these ap's to bridge. Ie two buildings 100 yards apart Both buildings have wired clients into a Cisco poe switch. Want to plug the ap's into each switch and have them bridge the data and even better if they could trunk vlans. No wireless clients at all. Strictly a point to point bridge.

Also will they need to be lwaps or standalone APs. If they are lwaps can I flash to standalone ?!

Thanks

You can use them as standalone.

Use the station role as root for one AP and as none-root for the other AP.

You can use the APs in lightweight mode as well in bridge mode and enable ethernet bridging.

Here is a config example for autonomous APs:

Re: 1242's bridge mode wired switch

Will I then just cable the switch to the ethernets on both sides and pc's on the remote side will travel from switch to ap from Ethernet to other ap via wireless then other ap will take that data and put it on the Ethernet switch at its end and send it on its way?? Sorry just want to make sure we are talking about the same setup. The ONLY wireless will be the two ap's talking to eachother. Everything else is wired. Correct???

You are correct. The setup is like thi:

Switch -


ap )))))))))) (((((((((( ap -


Switch.

It is like two switches connected via a trunk cable . But rather the cable we use APs To connect the two swtches.
