Mesh networking

Equipments being used:

1) Cisco 2106 WLAN controller

2) Cisco 1131AG access points (LWAPP mode)

3) Cisco catalyst 2950 switch


My setup is as follows:

My access point is registered with the WLAN controller via the switch. When i try to change the mode of the access point to bridge. It does not accept the change. My aim is to create a mesh network using 1131AG access points.So my question is:

Can I setup a mesh network using Cisco 1131AG access point in LWAPP mode or do i need to change them to autonomous mode?

Any documentations or comments will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

You should be able to setup the 1130 at a Enterprise Wireless Mesh. Take a look at this link for the F&A for Enterprise Wireless Mesh:

Re: Mesh networking

The mesh trains are due to reconverge shortly so you will have all the 5.1x features available as well.

Re: Mesh networking

You can do this but you need 4.1.191M. It's the code that will enable you to put the AP in bridge mode. Here are the release notes.
