Re: bridge to bridge and bridge to access-point is it possible

Access Point(AP) can perform the functions of a Wireless Bridge and a AP at the same time, provided the AP is a dual band AP (1200, 1230, and 1240AG series) and supports the AP Link Role Flexibility feature. This feature allows AP's with two radios to use one of the radio for AP mode and the other radio for Wireless Bridge mode.

As an example, if we have a 1240AG series AP, we can use the 802.11a Radio for Wireless Bridge mode and the 802.11g radio for Access point mode. The AP Link role flexibility feature is supported on 1200, 1230, and 1240AG series APs starting IOS ( 12.3(7)JA ).

Re: bridge to bridge and bridge to access-point is it possible

The above mentioned post would definetly be the easiest way, other wise the not root bridge could be tethered to the AP using a cross over cable, thus allowing clients attached to the AP to have bridge connectivity to the other side.

The trick here is getting power to both devices...
