interface dot11radio0 cannot associate rcvd response from or Packet to client 003a.997c.b461 reached max retries, removing the client

Dear All,

I am trying to set up a Wireless Bridge between two locations using Cisco Bridge Aironet 1410 Series with Aironet Anttena 24dbi. The radio set at the main office is in Root mode and the site radio is non-root.

Root IP information:


radio encryption settings: TKIP

Client authenticated key manegement: mendatory with WPA pre-shared key

All these 2 radios have the same SSID.

The issue is that the non-root radio is unable to associate with the root radio, I am getting the error message: INTERFACE DOT11RADIO0 CANNOT ASSOCIATE RCVD RESPONSE FROM 003a.997c.b461 channel 161 15632 and sometimes I get the second error message "PACKET TO CLIENT 003a.997c.b461 REACHED MAX RETRIES REMOVING THE CLIENT

Can please assist me to solve this error message?????
