N bridge between two 1252an in bridge mode at 5GHz

I've read in some of the cisco documentation on the 1250 series that root bridge or non root bridge modes are "not tested". They don't say "not supported". I have a client that could use a high bandwidth link between two buildings that are 100' or so apart. The fiber link has already been busted twice. Heavy heavy trucks kill the ground concrete. I have configed a 54Mbps solution with two 1242G's and some cisco yagi's. But, if an N bridge is possible with two 1252AG's, and go faster than the 54Mbps..I'd go with that setup.

Cisco documentation says the bridge modes show up in the 1252 webgui and are selectable. They just end it with "not tested".

Any thoughts?

It became supported in recent versions of the 1250 IOS.

|With this feature, the Cisco Aironet 1140 and 1250 Series can be configured for both access point and bridge functions. Bridging support on 802.11n access points offers added performance, reliability and throughput for basic wireless LAN coverage, wireless LAN coverage with wireless backhaul, and more traditional bridging applications.|

I don't know what's wrong with posting CCO links, it does this half of the times :-(

Anyway, search on cco for "1250" and "release notes" you should find it. Also on 12.4.21 release notes.

Where you able to get N speeds with 5ghz bridge?

You can obtain N rates as long as your link is not far. The AP will agree on a modulation in which signal strength, SNR, will contribute on what the bridges negotiate at.
