I am after some advice on how to link two Aironet's up.
About 6 months ago I bought for my house a Aironet 1602e, it was better than my previous two access points but not perfect. I recently acquired and Aironet 1140i. Both units are stand alone access points.
My question is how to do Iink these up.
At present they are both configured as 'Access Points' with the same SSID on differnt channels. It works but it's not ideal. The devices connected have to loose signal before roaming to the other.
I think I should be setting the 1602e as an Access Point and the 1140i as a non-root bridge but I am not sure. Can some one tell me what I should be doing?
What makes me more unsure is when I try to do the above on the 1140 it tells me only one radio can be in non-root bridge mode.
If your using WPA2/AES are you setting a pre shared key (WPA2-Personal)? You are either using preshared or 802.1x which requires a radius server. I'm guessing preshared in your case. There should be roaming between the two and nothing you can do to speed that up. The requirements is really to have the same SSID and preshared key on both AP's along with other settings. If your using 802.1x (WPA2 Enterprise) them you need to setup a WDS AP.
