1310 Root Bridge will not Authenticate with 350 Non Root Bridge

I've exhausted myself solving this issue.

I have a 1310 set as a root bridge using WEPS. I have a 350 set as a non root bridge/without clients, also using WEPS (they both use the same SSID)

The 350 will not authenticate to the 1310. After doing a Carrier Busy Test, it is clear the 350 see's the 1310 with signal strengh of 100 percent.

(I have a test lab setup in my office)

If I make the 350 the Root Bridge and the 1310 the Non Root, The 1310 will authenticate to the 350.

I hoping someone else has seen this problem and can enlighten me.

Thank you.

Try upgrading 1300 AP to IOS version 12.3(4)JA .

I had a similar problem then found out that 350 bridges only talk to other 350 bridges. As far as mixing 1310's with 350 series you can use a AP350 with a 1310 WGB, a 1310 AP with a 350 WGB and maybe a 1310 root bridge with a 350 WGB.

I have successfully configured a 1310 Bridge as a Root Bridge and a BR350 Bridge and a Non Root Bridge/with Clients. I also had to force the 1310 to operate at 11MB only.

As soon as I make the BR350 Bridge a Non Root Bridge/without Clients, the authentication is dropped between the two.

I was hoping I could transition to the 1310 one unit at a time since I have over a dozen 350's to replace.

I have resolved the problem. It really helps when you read the manual. You see things for what they are and not "What If"

So what was the solution? It might help someone else.

I have this problem! what was the solution you used to fix the problem? Can't believe you wasted that response and did not say what the solution was.
