Re: urgent

yes, actually you can easily find the answer from IOS AP's configuration guide:

Re: urgent

Can you specify the actual link to where you can setup one raido in bridge mode and the other radio as a root-ap?

config t

interface dot11radio 0

station-role root access-point

interface dot11radio 1

station-role non-root bridge

Re: urgent

Yes, Chapter 6 "configure radio setting" tells us 1240 can work as root/not-root bridge with wireless, there are two way to do it. One is to use one radio as both bridge and AP, however for better performance, in reality we prefer to use a feature called LRF for 1240, use 11a as backhaul, use 11b/g as wireless client connection. so what you can configure is like:

interface dot11radio 0

station-role root access-point

interface dot11radio 1

station-role non-root bridge

If you only have one radio available for example for 1310, then you have to use the 2.4GHz radio to work as both bridge and AP, but this definately will greatly decrease the performance:

interface dot11radio 0

station-role non-root wireless-clients
