Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

I have Eight AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9's accross our site that have 2 SSID's and 2 VLAN's that work well, I want to link one of the AIR-AP1242AG-E-K9 to another one using 5ghz patch antennas across a 50 metre gap, but I am puzzled on how to do this, as to create a root bridge and a non route bridge link I need to put the infrastucture SSID on and this must be on VLAN1  but I want the traffic from both VLANs to pass over this link. I just want to ensure the config will work as I need to go into a cherry picker to get to the non-root-bridge.

Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

On the Engineering AP you need to configure the subinterace on Radio 1

dot11radio1.1234

encapsulation dot1q 1234

bridge-group 255

It got created on the Radio 0, but not radio 1.

Also, you don't need to configure the second SSID, unelss you are wanting to service clients on that subnet as well.

Re: Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

Configuration wise it's not that much different from having multiple SSID on an AP. except you only have the one SSID

Configure your SSID and call VLAN 1 in it. You've already notes that you need the infrastructure SSID command. Make sure you call VLAN 1 on the cipher under the radio as well.

All you need to do to trunk the other VLAN across is build the sub interfaces in radio 1 and the fastethernet interfaces and create those bridge groups. And trunk to the ap.

Re: Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

Hi Steve I have the point to point Root Bridge to Non Root Bridge running on Radio1 and traffic on VLAN1 is functioning perfectly but I can't seem to route my second VLAN over it

Re: Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

can you post the config of the root and non-root?

Steve

Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

Thanks I will try that, the second SSID is for open access for non staff and goes directly out via a DSL line that is seperated from the corporate network

Re: Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

Hi Steve that did the trick. After I ran those commands through the CLI it all works perfectly.

I am not that up on using the CLI and in the WebUI it would not let me assign the second VLAN on to Radio1.

Thanks Again

No worries glad I could help.

I'm way more comfortable at the CLI of an IOS AP than I am the GUI myself.

Re: Use 1242 5GHz to create wireless bridge

It Appears I will have to learn the CLI, because some of the GUI options just don't seem logical, like turning Radio1 to enable in the GUI does not always work, but the CLI command "no shutdown" works perfectly!
