The above mentioned is configured to operate in non-root bridge mode with clients setting to another 1310 operating in root-bridge mode with clients. The interface on the non-root bridge suddenly went into disabled mode. I have tried shutting down the interfacing to restart it, restarted the bridge all to no avail.
Need assistance from anyone who has probably xperienced this situation.

I think I understood it...

Does this docuement help you, it explains the error, and should give you a better understanding:


What do you need assistance with? What do you want the AP to do?

hi naykam, thanks for the link above. I have configured the aps and they have been functional. The problem is after about 1 month of successful operation of the aps, the one configured as a non-root bridge suddenly goes down. When i was trobuleshooting, from the radio interface status, it shows that the software state is DSIABLED. That is the problem. I have tried restarting the interface and restarting the ap, but to success still. The interface software state still remains DISABLED. What can be done to correct this?

When the Non-Root bridge is not associated to a Root bridge it will show DISABLED.  This is highly confusing, but I can confirm that this is how it appears.  I have several 1300 bridges deployed, and this 'feature' caught me out when our first few links kept dropping due to alignment issues.

Change the channel on the Root bridge if you can, and increase the power to test.
