Can I do this with aironet 350 series equipment?

Hello all,

I am trying to extend our network to cover two additional buildings with the furthest being about 12miles. Two of the buildings are in a straight line. Can i do this with the aironet 350 series:

RootBridge+ -------------------------Non-RootBridge+------------------Non-Root+

Parabolic Antenn Parabolic Antenna Yagi antenna

My idea is to use the Yagi abou 12 miles away to pick the signal being transmitted by the root bridge parabolic antenna.

Thanks.

Hi ,

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/cc/pd/witc/ao340ap/prodlit/airoa_ds.htm

If all are in straight line and all are direction antenna than it is not good idea

You may want to do as follows

non root ( directional antenna) ------root ( omni direction )----non root (direction antenna )

Or best is buy two pair of bridges

root(direction )----nonroot(direction)--wire-root(direction)------nonroo(direction)

Both pairs will have two different SSID and two different channel .
