Can a Cisco Access point(AP) associate with a Cisco Wireless Bridge?


A Cisco Access Point (AP) and a Cisco Wireless Bridge cannot associate to each other. Only a workgroup bridge can associate with an AP.You can connect two AP in repeater mode but not in root mode. Instead of establishing a connection between an AP and a bridge you can make two bridges to communicate with each other

Possible associations with an AP are:

  • An AP to a client

  • An AP to an AP (in repeater mode)

  • An AP (in repeater mode) to a base station (in AP mode)

  • An AP to a workgroup bridge

For more related information, refer to Cisco Aironet Access Point FAQ.
