350 series Wireless Bridge - Deauthentication reason "Not Authenticated"


There seem to have been a few messages regarding the problem I am experiencing in this forum, but there doesn't appear to be much feedback on the resolution. Can someone offer any advise ?

I have two cisco 350 series bridges, both running 11.23T. Every so often the bridges deauthenticate and occasionally de-associate from each other. This seems to happen anywhere between 2 and 15 mins. The messages below are from the route wireless bridge.

20:11:47 Info Station [nonroot] Reassociated

20:11:47 Info Station [nonroot] Authenticated

20:11:47 Info Deauthenticating, reason "Not Authenticated"

20:11:46 Info Deauthentication from [nonroot], reason "Not Authenticated"

20:11:25 Info Station [nonroot] Reassociated

The two bridges are approximately 200 feet apart, with excellent signal and strength from the yagi aerials. I experience this problem with or without WEP, with or without spanning tree. I have the bridges configured as AP/root and the other as Client/non-root.

Looking at the recommended software, I am probably going to upgrade to 12.00T. Before I do so though, I wondered if anyone had resolved this issue ?

Re: 350 series Wireless Bridge - Deauthentication reason "Not Au

I have the same problem as yours. I made a 12.00t upgrade on both bridges separated 2 meters apart (indoor test environment). For the Non-root bridge, i made it "Non-root w/ Clients" instead of "Non-root w/o clients", and disable STP as what the others have suggested. This suggestion didn't work. I experience an average of 30 or 10 mins of connectivity between bridges(ping = <10ms TTL) before connectivity is lost (20-30 request timeouts) then connectivity comes back again.
