Cisco BR-342 and FreeBSD


I have an Cisco Aironet 340 Series wireless bridge and FreeBSD

4.6-STABLE in my network connected via hub. After bridge restart server becomes

unavaliable to all wireless clients, but all Windows and Linux

machines in cable LAN are still avaliable for them.

After resetting and configuring bridge all works fine until restart.

All arp enties in tables are fine, tcpdump shows packets from a

wireless client.

What can I do, what it might be?

Re: Cisco BR-342 and FreeBSD

I assume the tcpdump was run on FreeBSD, and it sees packets from wireless clients. Have You tried clearing ARP table ( arp -da )? FreeBSD around 4.6 had bug with properly interpreting ARP table entries.
