Hello



Good morning ,



I have a Access point model 1242AG , it's configured in station role to be a root bridge,

the issue is when I try to change the station role to no-root bridge with wireless clients , it gives me a message "ERROR :'set infrastructure SSID ' must be configued in order to der the 'ROLE in Radio Network ' to the following roles :

-Repeter

Access Point(Fallback to repeter)

Non root Bridge

Non root bridge with wireless clients

(see security > ssid manager page )



I went to the specific page and I can not understand the main goal of this message although i already configured everything including the SSID





Would you please try to help me ?

Thank you

Kind Regards .

Thank you
Why aren't you issuing commands in promt, and quit messing with GUI? This is a cisco device, which typically is not an end user piece of equipment. The fact that you are saying you are going to screens, worries me. It should all be accomplished with a command prompt and configuration files! You should be able to write a configuration file in notepad, and upload to the router, and reboot, and it all works. NO GUI needed!

Do you have 1 device already working? SO this is the second device?

Take the config file from it, and alter what you need!
I already did that , many times but nothing changed.
I guess i am going to leave it away a little bit , til I find another solution .
I would like to thank you very much for your assistance it was very helpful .
