wireless bridge connection

i just set up a wireless bridge connection on 2 buildings about 80 feet apart with a very good line of sight but is having trouble establishing a wireless bridge connection (from bridge to bridge) -- here's the details: purpose of setup is to extend the main building's LAN (one network) to remote building by using a wireless point to point.

---- 3 dlink DWL2100 access points  (2 to function as a bridge, 1 as AP)
---- 2 directional antennas with 30 feet ultra low loss extension cables (for connections to DWL2100AP bridges)

the bridge (DWL2100) in the main building has an ethernet cable that connects to the switch and configured to be a DHCP client. the other bridge at the remote building connects to a DWL2100 access point and both are configured as DHCP clients also.  all the DWL2100s use the same SSID and channel.

from the main building, i find that by using dlink's ap manager software, only one AP (the bridge in main bldg) instead of three (the other 2 in remote bldg) was on the device discovery list. actually, the connection was tested good before the setup ( all 3 were listed). ping test to remote bridge was no good -- timed out....the antennas are in good sight of each other...any idea why it's not working ?

thanks

Hi clebrowns,

Try changing the channel that  your bridged AP's are using. I had a simular problem with 2 Dlink Di634's.

God Bless
