LWAPP AP1242 Workgroup Bridge Mode

Did anyone configure LWAPP AP1242 for Workgroup Bridge Mode? I am going to upgrade existing IOS AP's including Workgroup Bridges to LWAPP. I like to have workgroup bridge using two LWAPP 1242 AP's, one for root and other for workgroup bridge as I did on IOS AP. Does WLC 4400 support this configuration?

Hi Chris,

Sorry, this is not supported. Have a look;

Q. Do LWAPP APs support WGB?

A. WGB functionality is only implemented on autonomous IOS APs, not on LWAPP APs.

From this doc;

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps441/products_qanda_item09186a0080094644.shtml#q22

The following Cisco Aironet access points have the ability to operate as autonomous access points or lightweight access points:

Cisco Aironet 1240 AG Series Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1230 AG Series Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1200 Series Access Points that contain 802.11g (AIR-MP21G-x-K9) and/or second-generation 802.11a radios (AIR-RM21A-x-K9 or AIR-RM22A-x-K9)

Cisco Aironet 1130 AG Series Access Points

Cisco Aironet 1100 Series Access Points that contain 802.11g radios (AIR-AP1121G-x-K9)

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Access Points/Bridges (AIR-BR1310G-x-K9 or AIR-BR1310G-x-K9-R). A Cisco Aironet 1300 Series operating in LWAPP mode only operates as an access point. This series does not support LWAPP bridging mode.

The LWAPP-capable access points listed above can be ordered configured for lightweight operation, or can be upgraded from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode using the Autonomous to Lightweight Mode upgrade tool. Orderable access points configured for lightweight operation contain an "LAP" prefix in the part number, such as AIR-LAP1310G-x-K9. Orderable access points configured for autonomous operation contain the standard "AP" prefix, such as AIR-AP1242AG-x-K9, or "BR" in the case of AIR-BR1310G-x-K9.

Re: LWAPP AP1242 Workgroup Bridge Mode

If we upgrade our 1242 to Auto., will we then be able to use them as workgroup bridges?

Hi Lamar,

Yes, the Autonomous 1242 AP does support WGB Mode;

Q. What Autonomous IOS APs can act as a WGB?

A. The AP1100, AP1130, AP200, AP1240, and BR1310 all support WGB mode of operation. The AP350 and the BR1400 do not support WGB.

Q. Do LWAPP APs support WGB?

A. WGB functionality is only implemented on autonomous IOS APs, not on LWAPP APs.
