Ras good reply my friend +5.

Chun -- Correct if you put it into workgroup bridge mode it will connect. You mentioned you were in root / non-root. It will not if thats the case.

Re: Bridge mode of controller base ap

Hi Chun

Good question and folks often get this confused. You aren't alone ..

Root and non-root are for aps in standalone also called autonomous mode. You can not bridge a non-root ap to a controller ap.

If you want to do bridging with a wlc you need to configure your aps in mesh mode.


Does that help ?

Hi Chun,

There is a way around as long as you configure non-root AP as WGB (station role work group-bridge). Then you should be able it to connect to controller based AP.  Here how I did this for a testing purpose
