Connecting workgroup bridge towards bridge

Hello,

I'm currently making some lab testing and i'm trying to make a set-up similar to figure 3-2 at http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/wireless/airo_350/350brdgs/brscg/br350ch3.htm#xtocid9

What i'm trying is actually a little bit different in case that i have replaced one of the non-root bridges with a 350 series wgb. Problem is that I'm not able to make an association between the wgb and the 350 series root bridge. I know that you normally associate with the wgb to an access point, but when you read the following in the definition of a root bridge: "A root bridge can only communicate with non-root bridges and other client devices and cannot associate with another root bridge.", I would assume that you would also be able to make an association with the wgb. If I'm totally wrong here, what does Cisco means in that case with "other client devices" in the mentioned definition?

best regards,

Dimitri

WGB can't associate with BRIDGE..It will only associate with Access Point or Bridge in Access Point mode or Base Station in AP mode..

Other client device means "wireless ethernet client"

Pl. visit following url for Aironet hardware association matrix.
