wireless clients dropping off network when no traffic is passed
Hi all, I have a setup whereas I have multiple workgroup bridges with a small switch connected to the ap with 3 pc's on each, these wgb's then associate to an access point. It seems that the connection does not stay alive between them unless we ping the wgb's.
Re: wireless clients dropping off network when no traffic is pas
The access point to which a workgroup bridge associates can treat the workgroup bridge as an infrastructure device or as a simple client device. By default, access points and bridges treat workgroup bridges as client devices.
You can configure access points and bridges to treat workgroup bridges not as client devices but as infrastructure devices, like access points or bridges. Treating a workgroup bridge as an infrastructure device means that the access point reliably delivers multicast packets, including Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) packets, to the workgroup bridge. You use the infrastructure-client configuration interface command to configure access points and bridges to treat workgroup bridges as infrastructure devices.
