I have 4 Cisco 1242ag access points, 1 is the broadcast unit setup as a root bridge with wireless clients running a local vlan, 2 are setup as work group bridges with pc's connected via the ethernet port and 1 setup as a repeater(all those work great).  The problem: I am adding a 1242ag that will connect via the repeater, I have set it up exactly like the other 2 workgroup bridges and it is not authenticating.  Thoughts?

I'm guessing that it authenticates without the repeater in the middle....correct?

Yes.  It authenticates at the broadcast unit.  I trieg again this morning with a different antenna, didn't work.  Then I brought to an area it could directly connect to the broadcast unit w/o the repeater and it connected just fine, so something with the repater and this new ap config are working together.  I am able to take my laptop and connect just fine via the repeater.
