RV180W - Wireless Bridge

I am trying to configure an RV180W to act as a wireless bridge to our guest wireless network (Cisco 4404 WLC, 1130AG access points, WPA2 personal).  I was told in a Cisco support chat that this configuration was possible, now that I have the RV180W it doesn't seem that it is.

I've configured the RV180W as a WDS Bridge with the ssid name, WPA2 key, and MAC of an AP hosting the guest wireless but it still doesn't seem to connect.  I have a feeling I would need another WDS device for this to work, and that it will not connect to just any wireless network.

Does anyone have any expierence using an RV180W as a wireless bridge?

Hi wbcrbud, to bridge correctly, WDS peers are other access points in the network connected in the WDS.

Are you saying that I need to configure WDS on the Cisco 4404 Wireless Lan Controller?  I wasn't aware that this was possible.  Could you elaborate?

Thanks.

wbcrbud, I am saying all devices connecting need to be able to join the WDS.  I do not know what the WLC supports (it is a TAC/Enterprise product, not a small business product).

Typically, both products needs to run WDS and more often than not, need to have the same wireless chipsets.

OK, that's not very good news.  I will check with TAC to see if one of our AP's could support WDS.  Or if there are other options for getting an ethernet connection from the guest wireless network.

Thanks for the information.
