STP question

Hello,

We want to create a redundant link connecting two switches through four 1310 access points/bridges (two access points will make a link and the other two will be the backup path). I've read that the STP is disabled by default in these access points. If the STP is disabled in the AP's, do they forward BPDU messages?

I would like to know if I will have a loop problem with the STP disabled in the AP's. Each AP will be connected to a switch port. They will form two redundant links and we want STP to block one of them. Do I have to configure STP on the AP's? or the STP configured on the switch will do this job?

Thanks in advance,

Re: STP question

With the default configs where STP is disabled on the bridges they will pass the BPDU's from the switch transparently. So STP should still be running between the switches and as far as STP is concerned the wireless bridges aren't even there.
