Configuring the Cisco Aironet WGB

Core Issue

Cisco Aironet Workgroup Bridges (WGBs) serve a different purpose in the wireless network than bridges and are configured differently.


Workgroup bridges are small, stand-alone units that provide wireless infrastructure connections for Ethernet-enabled devices. A device connected to a bridge communicates with a network infrastructure through Cisco Aironet Access Points (APs).

The bridge connects to a hub through a standard Ethernet port using a 10BASE-T/RJ-45 (twisted pair) connector, and up to eight client devices can be connected to the hub. You can use an Internet browser or Telnet to configure the bridge.

The bridge communicates with Cisco Aironet APs, but does not communicate with wireless networking devices manufactured by other companies.

For information on configuring a Cisco Aironet WGB, refer to these documents:

Note: The Cisco Aironet 340 and 350 series WGBs configure identically. The only difference between the two is the radio output power. The 340 series WGB output is 30 milliWatts (mW). In the 350 series, this is increased to 100 mW.
