can't ping 350 bridge

Level 1
Level 1

I have an aironet 350 wireless bridge with 12.03T firmware installed. This bridge is connected to a Cisco 2950 switch. The ports are configured as 10baseT / half duplex. I have defaulted the bridge, reloaded firmware on the bridge, restarted the bridge and replaced the switch with a new one. My problem is there is no communication between the switch and the bridge. If I pop the connecting cable out and put it back in, I can ping the bridge for a couple of minutes and then receive a timeout. I can however connect directly to the bridge via crossover cable and work like normal. This is the first time this happened to me and I now have two sites down. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

You might want to replace the cable to rule out it being defective. Then try uprgrading to 12.04 for the bridge if the cable change did not work . Here are the release notes.

If the upgrade does not work, the unit may be defective.

Can you tell if the switchport has stopped forwarding traffic? It may be a spanning tree issue.

can you run "show spanning-tree interface ?/?" please? This tell you if the port is in forward state or not. It also tell you the spanning tree state of a particular VLAN
