what you want to research is point to multi-point.

Re: bridge to bridge and bridge to access-point is it possible

I have done this very thing. You will need to have a cross-over cable between your non-root bridge and the access point. I have two locations where I have things working this way and it works fine. I've added a picture in .gif format so you can see how I hooked it up and the IP addressing I used.

Good luck getting it going.

I must also add that I had the access point plugged into a wall socket as the non-root bridge will obviously not supply Power over Ethernet. I thought I should mention that.

Re: bridge to bridge and bridge to access-point is it possible

Take a look at my suggested config below. The first accesspoint will broadcast a SSID for clients and use a different SSID for the bridge. This setup has no 802.1x mechanism yet, but you can add that later. For the topology see PtoPLinkExample.gif posted earlier.

----- Accesspoint 1 --------------

dot11 ssid bridge

authentication open

!

dot11 ssid WiFiNet

authentication open

guest-mode

!

interface Dot11Radio0

ssid bridge

!

ssid WiFiNet

!

----- Accesspoint 2 --------------

dot11 ssid bridge

authentication open

!

interface Dot11Radio0

parent 1

!

ssid bridge

!

station-role workgroup-bridge

----- Accesspoint 3 --------------

dot11 ssid WiFiNet

authentication open

guest-mode

!

interface Dot11Radio0

ssid WiFiNet

!
