1242AG WGB and Client Devices

Hi, is there a way to connect multiples AP to a root AP which is connected to the LAN and at the same time allowing client devices to connect to those AP. Perhaps, using 2.4 Ghz for client devices and 5 Ghz for WGB. Or perhaps using the AP as a repeater?

The simple answer is yes - the only thing that could change the way they are configured is - are you AP's LWAPP or Autonomous

I'm using Autonomous AP, since there's no WLC.

The only way is to setup the ap's as a repeater, which isn't a good idea, since the throughput is cut in half.

I agree with Scott, you a re probably best configuring the AP as a non-root or a work group bridge.
