AP1262 bridge to Non-Cisco Access Point?

I would like to use a Cisco AP1262 in a mobile command vehicle to bridge to any WiFi Access Point that I know the SSID and Pasword to.  Will the 1262 Bridge to a Non-Cisco Access Point?

If so, any assistance in finding an example configuration would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Brian

Hi Brian,Yes, you can

Hi Brian,

Yes, you can configure 1262 as Universal Workgroup bridge where it will associate to any cisco or non-cisco root AP. You can only connect one wired client behind universal WGB.

You just need to configure "station-role workgroup-bridge universal <wired_client_MAC>" under radio interface of WGB. (1262)

Something similar should work for your 1262, if you want it in 5GHz, otherwise configure radio 0 interface for WGB

hostname WGB
!
dot11 ssid <SSID-NAME>
   authentication open 
   authentication key-management wpa version 2
   wpa-psk ascii <PASSWORD>
!
interface Dot11Radio1
 encryption mode ciphers aes-ccm
 station-role workgroup-bridge universal 068d.098a.d422 <- Ur wired MAC
 ssid <SSID-NAME>
 bridge-group 1
!
interface GigabitEthernet0
 bridge-group 1

 

NB: I haven't tested this, so you  have to test & confirm. If WPA2/AES is not supported then you may need to choose suitable security protocol & encryption mechanism.
