Problem with AP 1240ag & end client trough Linksys bridge

Hello everybody and sorry for my poor English.

I'll try explaining you which is my problem.

One month ago, I had an access point 1100 series working perfectly with a Linksys bridge (Wet54g).


AP 1100 --------> Bridge-------> Laptop via wire (obtain IP trough dhcp)

Now we want retire the 1100 and work with access point 1240ag series. They are configured exactly same, but the Laptop don't obtain IP.


-Dhcp server is a W2003R2

-If I try to connect a Laptop via wireless, everything is OK


AP 1240 --------> Laptop via wireless (obtain IP trough dhcp)

-If I try to connect a Laptop via wire, everything is KO


AP 1240 --------> Bridge --------> Laptop via wire (don't obtain IP trough dhcp)

But if I assigned the IP trough network connections, everything works perfectly.

Does anyone know which my problem is?

Could anyone explain me how can I resolve the problem?

Thanks a lot by your time

Re: Problem with AP 1240ag & end client trough Linksys bridge

Is the 1240 in 'Root Bridge' mode or in 'Root Access-Point' mode?

I have seen lots of problems when the AP is in bridge mode instead of AP mode. Try setting it to 'Root Access-Point' mode and all should be ok.
