Bridge Mode Support on AP1041N

Hi,

I'm trying to get confirmation on whether you can have workgroup bridge mode on the 1040 series model.

The 1041N has the same IOS as the 1141/1241 and it has the settings are there, but I read somewhere on the cisco site that workgroup bridge is only supported on 1100 and 1200 series, is this correct or old information?

Scenario is:

I have an existing stand alone 1041N AP, on the other side of the building I have a network LAN switch with a couple of PCs, instead of running cables I would like to add an AP as a bridge to link that switch and PCs to the network that the AP is plugged in to. I believe this is called Workgroup Bridge Mode. In fact there already is a cheap non-cisco wireless device doing this but it is unreliable.

I just placed an order for Two 1041N APs, do I need to change the order to Two 1141N instead?

Also even if the 1041N does not support workgroup bridge mode, can it still act as the ROOT Bridge and have 2 1141N APs configured in bridge mode connected to the 1041N?

Bridge Mode Support on AP1041N

Gonzalo,

Yes, WGB is supported on 1040s.

Reference: http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/wireless/access_point/12.4.25d.JA/Configuration/guide/scg12.4.25d.JA-chap1-overview.html

Yes, technically you can configure 1140s as WGBs and have them associate to the 1040, although I would put the 1140 as the root and have 1040s be the WGBs (or better yet, just use 1140s and forget the 1040s altogether). The 1140 is a better AP for a number of reasons, so use that to handle the incoming WGB associations.
