Bridge mode - MAP /RAP - Client service

Hi all.

I'm very confused about the MAP and RAP mode as they are APs configured in Bridge mode.

In the CCNA Wireless, we are clearly taught that Bridge mode APs  do NOT deliver client service...

Apparently Mesh and Root APs are APs in bridge mode but do deliver client service!!!

I've surelly missed something. Could someone help please?

Thanks

Alex

Bridge mode - MAP /RAP - Client service

Hi Alex,

Bridge Mode AP

Many Wi-Fi bridging mode products exist with varying levels of functionality. Some wireless bridges support only a single point-to-point connection to another AP. Others support point-to-multipoint connections to several other APs.

Each AP in bridging mode connects to a wired LAN. Some AP models simultaneously support wireless clients while operating in bridging mode, but others work as "bridge-only" and disallow any clients from connecting.

Root AP - Places the bridge in the access point mode. In this mode, the bridge emulates a Cisco Aironet Access Point(example: 1100 Series ) and accepts associations from client devices.

Hope it helps

Regards

Bridge mode - MAP /RAP - Client service

Hi Sandee

You say

"Root AP - Places the bridge in the access point mode"  => meaning when selecting the bridge mode we have the option to chose:

- Bridge only ( Point to Point)

- Bridge only ( Point to Multipoint)

- RAP

- MAP

Do you have any screen shots with a dropdwon menu showing these options?

Thanks in advance

Alex
