Aironet AP 1310G Root and Non-Root Configuration

Hello.

I have a Problem with the Configuration between an Aironet 1310 Root and 1310 Non-Root wireless Bridge.

The SSID are the same on both Aironet Bridges (sankyo). I always configure Vlan for different SSID; on both side the same VLAN for the SSID Sankyo. The connection from a Notebook via Wireless LAN to the Root Bridge is OK, but the NON-Root Bridge will not connect to the Root-Bridge (no Response).

Is there any Configuration-Example for a Root bridge with NON-Root Bridge connecting on an SSID with configured VLAN? I have found many Example here by Cisco but no Example how to configure a Non-Root Bridge to connect to an Root Bridge.

The IOS is 12.3(4) on the Aironet Bridges

Regards

Hartmut

Hartmut,

I am also grappling with the same problem.

1310 Bridges, IOS 12.3(4)JA

The Root's Dot11 Interface stays up, but the Non-Root's Dot11 Interface changes state to either disabled or reset.

A check of the error messages:

%DOT11-4-CANT_ASSOC

I've checked the following:

SSID - both the same ssid. The only single ssid on BR's

BVI - same ip subnet

Root - has ssid set as infrastructure ssid, and Force checkbox is marked

Non-Root - has ssid set as infrastructure (I've tried the Force checkbox both checked and unchecked)

Dot11 Channel - forced from Least Freq to a specific channel (no change)

I'm doing most of this through the GUI interface, though I'm also consoled into both units.

Thanks,

Daniel

Hi,

i have solved my Problem.

The Aironet 1310 K9R Series must have connect an external Antenna when they in Configuration Root - nonRoot. There is no internal Antenna in the Aironet Brigde named 1310..K9R

Thanks,

Hartmut,

Thanks. I also found out about the external antenna requirement. I was simply doing a lab setup and would watch them associate and lose association. After some troubleshooting I was watching the non-root 'searching' the channels to try and associate. I had already 'locked' the Root onto a specific channel. After considering why the non-Root would pass by the selected channel I reasoned it had to be signal. So, hooked up antennas and solved the association problem.

Anyways, thanks. It just confirmed my suspicions.

Sincerely,

Daniel
