    maybe have a solution , on the switch you can turn on / off bpdu guard per interface
     the command is something like no spanning-tree bdpu disable
    this will keep the port active and in a up up state.

    this will resolve this issue

    Yes i know to stop from switch side but i think its not receommended as we have six aps should be connected to the  switch already lInksys Ap is connected with bpdu guard enable , and port is not going to error disabled mode

    So i need to do some thing to stop AP to sending Bpdu, as other Linksys ap is not snding the BPDU


    Accepted Solution

    I got the Solution  have to give command

    Spannng tree bpdufilter enable

    and thats it it starts work as a charm even bpduguard is enable on port actually iwhat bpdu filter is doing is checking the bpdu from this port and silently dropping it leaving  the port state to up

    Tiill now this is the best solution but if some one have some other beter way to do this please come up with t
