wireless client bridge mode -- ?? model?

I need an AP that can run in client bridge mode. By that I mean a device that can be connected to a PC via the ethernet cable and provide wireless access because these older devices don't have wireless network cards?

I looked at the WAP321 but it just uses a wizard. I need a device with IOS so that the PSK keys can be encrypted when viewing. I need to have the config backed up and the PSK can't be in clear text.

Any information on what model to choose is very much appreciated.

Thank you,

Take a look at the 1131 or 1242 of G rates are ok. Both can run on universal WGB mode.

Yup 1130 is an inexpensive enterprise way to go. Give this a read

Re: wireless client bridge mode -- ?? model?

Thanks guys! Do you know the command to encrypt the psk? I can't have it in clear text. All i see is the base command which still displays the psk in clear text:

wpa-psk ascii sample_key 

Thank you,

It is hashed if you do a show run from the CLI.

Re: wireless client bridge mode -- ?? model?

Hi,

You can use any of the Cisco IOS units like the 1230-1250-1140-1240, etc and use the option of WGB that will allow the AP in this mode to connect to an existing AP and then you can connect on the lan port a end device or a switch.

Check on the FAQ for WGB.
