Autonomous bridge connecting to LWAPP AP, possible?

Hi,

Can a Cisco Autonomous Bridge connect to an LWAPP AP and re-broadcast the SSID's? As in acting like a wireless repeater?

Thanks

No can do my friend. Repeaters are autonomous only. When you get into lwapp you want to do bridge (mesh).

Adding to George....

Repeaters are not supported when connecting to a lightweight access point. 

Either

{

you can use MESH. 

Chekc it here:

or

You can configure your AAP as Work Group Bridge (WGB) & then you can associate it to a LAP.

Hi,

The WGB can be any Cisco Autonomous Access Point that supports the Workgroup Bridge mode and runs Cisco IOS Software Release 12.4(3g)JA or later (on 32-MB access points) or Cisco IOS Software Release 12.3(8)JEB or later (on 16-MB access points). These access points include the AP1120, AP1121, AP1130, AP1231, AP1240, and AP1310. Cisco IOS software releases prior to Cisco IOS Software Releases 12.4(3g)JA and 12.3(8)JEB are not supported.

On the wireless LAN controller, you should have software version 4.1.185.0 or later. The Workgroup Bridge mode is not supported on the controller on any of the earlier versions
