CISCO BR342 Bridge Configuration Problem

I am trying to configure two bridges to link two network together. I can ping One brdge from the other but cannot ping a system from one network to another.

Can the brdge be configured as a gateway?

What is the problem.

I’m afraid not. You’re going to need a router to router between the two networks.

The bridge cannot be configured as a gateway. I think the keyword here is "bridge". These devices only forward using layer 2 intelligence.

Re: CISCO BR342 Bridge Configuration Problem

If you have the same subnet configured on both sides, and the bridges are associated and communicating then your problem is Spanning Tree on the Ethernet port. I had the same symptom the first time I setup two bridges, I found that Spanning Tree gets enabled by default on the Ether port and you have to disable it. It should work just fine then.
