Problems with Aironet 350 Bridge, Cannot set role to RootBridge or NonRoot
first of all, hello to everyone, this is my first message here, and i'm glad that i found a place where we can discuss problems.
My company just borrowed two Aironet 350 Bridges, since we wanted to test if we could establish a connection between two LAN's in two different buildings.
The distance between these buildings is about 2 miles, but this is not important here. Of course we want to pre-configure the bridges before we set up the test scenario. After studying the documentation we knew that we wanted one bridge to act as ROOT BRIDGE and the other one acting as NON ROOT BRIDGE.
And this is exactly the problem we're having.
In the SETUP-Dialogue there is no such option available.
Let me show you what I've got:
In "Setup-->AP-Radio-->Advanced" there are these roles available:
"Radio Cell Role"
In "Setup-->Express Setup" there are these roles available:
"Role in Radio Network"
-Root Access Point
-Repeater Access Point
-Site Survey Client
Where is Root Bridge and Non Root Bridge as talked about in the documentation?
And maybe someone can shortly describe the difference between "Radio Cell Role" and "Role in Radio Network"....is there a difference at all...
Since I'm new to WLAN's maybe there are some things which we forgot about.
We didn't change much about the default config so far, we just assigned static IP-Adresses (both bridges are in the same network).
What do i have to do, to be able to assign the BRIDGE and NON ROOT BRIDGE role to the bridges? Can someone give a short description what the single steps to success are?
Just for your interest, when i go to the express setup, i see the bridge's identification, which is labeled as:
If your bridges have one of these serial numbers then you will need to contact the TAC to have these replaced via the RMA process.
If you have borrowed these bridges then the owner will need to do this
A bridge "should not" start up if AP firmware has been loaded onto it. Cisco will only support the use of the the correct firmware and if you load the incorrect firmware you may render the device unservicable.
If the serial number of these bridges is not listed in the field notice please open a TAC case on them, once again if you have borrowed these devices then the owner will need to do this.
