Can users directly access aeronets configured as Bridges?

Here is our scenario, We have two Aironet 1400's facing each other to extend our LAN btw two buildings

One is configured as root bridge the other is non root bridge. I see an option in the GUI to

configure as an Access Point. My question is- Does the fact that I have the aironets configured

as bridges prevent unauthorized clients from accessing the bridges and thus our network?

Are these bridges considered Access Points that a laptop can attach too?

Hi Richard,

If you do not want 802.11 clients on the bridge, leave the default Role in the Radio network value to bridge only mode. This allows only other bridges to communicate with the device.

From this excellent Q&A doc;

Hope this helps!

Rob
