Problem with C3201 as bridge (WGB Universal)

I am using some Cisco C3201 to work as network bridge to connect a wired device to an existing Wi-Fi Network.

The simplified scenario is:

[Not cisco AP]----- Dot11Radio 0 -C3201- FastEthernet 0 ---- Wired device (debian).

I've updated to IOS version 12.4, in order to use WPA2-PSK with AES-CCMP encryption, and I can verify that the bridge is successfully associated with the AP, with "show dot11 association all" command. (Excepted with TP-Link access points, which I could only associate using WEP or no security, but this is subject for another topic).

 

I am able to verify at the wired device the mac-address of the AP and other devices connected to the same WiFi network. I can get an address with DHCP from the same AP, but I can't get connectivity (even ping).

 

Tried to change to infrastructure-ssid, and infrastructure-client in order to don't mess with mac-adress, but still can't get ping response between access-point (which is the gateway for testing purposes) and the wired device.

 

"show bridge" command at the C3210 successfully presents the mac-address and interface of all devices.

 

With wireshark I could verify that the ping originated in the wired device reaches the network, but the response doesn't go through the bridge.

 

Here is the running-config:

service timestamps debug datetime msec

no service password-encryption

Someone could help in that issue? Is there anything obvious that I'm not seeing?


Thank you!

I got it working configuring the wired host MAC address at the station-role parameter.

 

station-role workgroup-bridge universal AAAA.BBBB.CCCC

 

Still can't associate with TP-Link access points using WPA-2/PSK
