I presently have a point to multi-point wireless network using an AP350 at the wired central connection point. I would like to upgrade the access point with a BR1310. Should I configure the BR1310 as an AP or as a root Bridge? There are about a dozen client locations which use both BR1310s (presently in WGB mode) and WGB350s to connect to the central AP. I beleive that the 1310's and the WGB350s are all compatible with the central BR1310 as either an AP or a Root Bridge. Is there any advantage to using the central BR1310 configured as a root bridge versus an AP? The path length from the central point to the clients is about 12 miles. Thanks.
I think the WGB350's will associate with a BR1310 root bridge and the BR1310 non-root bridges will also. Please tell me if that's not right. Is there any advantage to using a root bridge over an AP? Thanks for your response!
