A Cisco 350 series WGB and bridge will pass trunking using isl or 802.1q. You might need to adjust the packet size under the radio network options, where you can

adjust the packet size to pass larger packets. A Cisco 350 series WGB and bridge acts basically as a layer 2 device at this point ie., if it is directly connected to a router it will just pass whatever is sent to it over the rf to the other bridge it is connected to. The bridge is transparent for the frames.

The problem with trunking over these bridges is that they can get at 11mbps maximum. Trunking is done on a switch through one of the fast ethernet ports at 100mbs. So it i always advisable to avoid trunking over rf. Another problem is that when trunking is done on the bridge you will not be able to telnet, or http into the bridge, you will only be able to login through console to configure it.

ok.thanx.

But you are wrong saying that when trunking is done on the bridge you will not be able to telnet, or http into the bridge, you will only be able to login through console to configure it.

I have configured VLANS on my bridge. And I can access by telnet,http,ssh and of course by console.
