1242G connecting to 3x1242G's bridging

Hello

I want to know if it is possible to connect 3 x 1242G's (non-bridge) to one 1242G (bridge)? The Root-Bridge (Main AP, connected to our LAN with the router) has an omni-directional antenna, the 3 other 1242G's will connect to this one with directional antenna's. There will be no clients clients connecting to any AP's, these are purely used to extend our network because cabling is not an option.

I have tried this setup in the lab and can not get the AP's talking, even with no security and only using the SSID.

Reading on the site I have noted that the "point to multi-point" configurations always refer to the 1242AG AP's and not the 1242G AP's.

Your confirmation and guidance, either way, will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hi Phillip -

Yes, this configuration will work with your 1242G's. Here is a link to the doc showing how to configure the bridge:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/hw/wireless/ps458/products_configuration_example09186a00805b9b87.shtml

I know it refers to the 1242AG, but it's using the G radio for the bridge, so it doesn't really matter.

Good luck! I hope this helps.
