Cisco 1310

Greetings...

I am trying to setup two Cisco 1310 bridges (AIR-BR1310G-A-K9-R) for connectivity between two buildings.  No external antennas have been setup yet and I am just setting the basic configuration.

One is running c1310-k9w7-mx.123-8.JEA3, the other c1310-k9w7-mx.123-7.JA1…

I have one setup as a root-bridge, the other as a non-root bridge.

However, even after disabling authentication and encryption, both units are still not talking to each other.  Arghhh....

Maybe a second set of eyes can see an issue?  Thanks in advance.

Re: Cisco 1310

Jxn:

How do you check if they are talking to each other or not?

What is the distance between your bridges?

Are you sure the RF signal is reachable from one to another? are they line-of-sight with each other?

Try enabling the geust mode (guest-mode) for the SSID if this is going to help.

If I were in your shoes, I would use same version on both bridges to eliminate any (known or unknown) compatibility issues.

Re: Cisco 1310

Amjad,

The way I check for connectivity is to see if traffic passes across the bridges.  Also, the logs show

"Interface Dot11Radio0, cannot associate: No Response".

The RF signal is reachable from one to another, as they are just sitting on the bench a few feet from one another.  They are both within line of sight of each other using just the built-in antennas.

Will try Guest mode and trying to obtain a copy of the IOS so that I can update both of them to the same version.

Will let you know what happens... thanks!

Joe

Re: Cisco 1310

After a quick peek of your config, I dont see that you configured root and non root in your config. Also, you should put antennas on these to test. Do yu have them setting next to each other. Also, you should get the latest code and the same code on both bridges for starts.

Re: Cisco 1310

Thanks for your input, George.

The "station-role" is specified in each configuration (see above).

They have internal antennas, so I should be able to have them communicate on a test bench - true?

Working on getting the latest/same code...

Thanks!

Re: Cisco 1310

Joe:
The no response in the logs mean that the non-root bridge did not reply to the root at all.

Try to remove "distance 1" command as well. this 1 means 1 Km. it should not have big effect anyway but remove it if you are not using the bridges with 1+ Km distance.

try to use Dot11radio1 (802.11a) to test bridging if it works or not.

Also, you can try exchange the roles (root, non root) between two devices and check further.

successful assocaition should be seen by the command:
show dot11 associations.

I hope that after you get both bridges on same version they will sucessfully assocaited.

Good luck.

Re: Cisco 1310

I upgraded both bridges to the same IOS and voila they started working...

Thanks for everybody's input.
