THE SPECIFICATIONS AND INFORMATION REGARDING THE PRODUCTS IN THIS MANUAL ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT NOTICE. ALL
STATEMENTS, INFORMATION, AND RECOMMENDATIONS IN THIS MANUAL ARE BELIEVED TO BE ACCURATE BUT ARE PRESENTED WITHOUT
WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USERS MUST TAKE FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR APPLICATION OF ANY PRODUCTS.
THE SOFTWARE LICENSE AND LIMITED WARRANTY FOR THE ACCOMPANYING PRODUCT ARE SET FORTH IN THE INFORMATION PACKET THAT
SHIPPED WITH THE PRODUCT AND ARE INCORPORATED HEREIN BY THIS REFERENCE. IF YOU ARE UNABLE TO LOCATE THE SOFTWARE LICENSE
OR LIMITED WARRANTY, CONTACT YOUR CISCO REPRESENTATIVE FOR A COPY.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class A devices: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class A digital device, pursuant
to part 15 of the FCC rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference when the equipment is operated in a commercial
environment. This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio-frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual, may cause
harmful interference to radio communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area is likely to cause harmful interference, in which case users will be required
to correct the interference at their own expense.
The following information is for FCC compliance of Class B devices: The equipment described in this manual generates and may radiate radio-frequency energy. If it is not
installed in accordance with Cisco’s installation instructions, it may cause interference with radio and television reception. This equipment has been tested and found to
comply with the limits for a Class B digital device in accordance with the specifications in part 15 of the FCC rules. These specifications are designed to provide reasonable
protection against such interference in a residential installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation.
Modifying the equipment without Cisco’s written authorization may result in the equipment no longer complying with FCC requirements for Class A or Class B digital
devices. In that event, your right to use the equipment may be limited by FCC regulations, and you may be required to correct any interference to radio or television
communications at your own expense.
You can determine whether your equipment is causing interference by turning it off. If the interference stops, it was probably caused by the Cisco equipment or one of its
peripheral devices. If the equipment causes interference to radio or television reception, try to correct the interference by using one or more of the following measures:
• Turn the television or radio antenna until the interference stops.
• Move the equipment to one side or the other of the television or radio.
• Move the equipment farther away from the television or radio.
• Plug the equipment into an outlet that is on a different circuit from the television or radio. (That is, make certain the equipment and the television or radio are on circuits
controlled by different circuit breakers or fuses.)
Modifications to this product not authorized by Cisco Systems, Inc. could void the FCC approval and negate your authority to operate the product.

Preface
Obtaining Additional Publications and Information
Definitions of Service Request Severity
To ensure that all service requests are reported in a standard format, Cisco has established severity
definitions.
Severity 1 (S1)—An existing network is “down” or there is a critical impact to your business operations.
You and Cisco will commit all necessary resources around the clock to resolve the situation.
Severity 2 (S2)—Operation of an existing network is severely degraded, or significant aspects of your
business operations are negatively affected by inadequate performance of Cisco products. You and
Cisco will commit full-time resources during normal business hours to resolve the situation.
Severity 3 (S3)—Operational performance of the network is impaired while most business operations
remain functional. You and Cisco will commit resources during normal business hours to restore service
to satisfactory levels.
Severity 4 (S4)—You require information or assistance with Cisco product capabilities, installation, or
configuration. There is little or no effect on your business operations.

Overview
The Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge (hereafter called the bridge) is a wireless device
designed for building-to-building wireless connectivity. Operating in the 5.8-GHz UNII 3 band (5725 to
5825 MHz), derived from the 802.11a standard, the bridge delivers 6 to 54 Mbps data rates without the
need for a license. The bridge is a self-contained unit designed for outdoor installations, providing
differing antenna gains as well as coverage patterns. It supports both point-to-point and multipoint
configurations.
The bridge uses a browser-based management system, but you can also configure the bridge using Cisco
IOS commands or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

Overview
Key Features
Power
The bridge is available in two output power versions to support international regulatory regions:
•
Regular Power—Supports 24, 23, 22, 21, 18, 15, 12 dBm output power settings. Available in the
integrated antenna and external antenna bridge configurations.
•
Low Power—Supports 16, 13, 12, 10, 9, 8, 7, 4 dBm output power settings. Available only in the
integrated antenna bridge configuration for use in international regulatory regions.
The bridge receives inline power from the Cisco Aironet Power Injector LR (hereafter called the power
injector). Dual-coax cables are used to provide Ethernet data and power from the power injector to the
bridge. The power injector is an external unit designed for operation in a sheltered environment, such as
inside a building. The power injector also functions as an Ethernet repeater by connecting to a
Category 5 LAN backbone and using the dual-coax cable interface to the bridge.
The power injector uses an external 48-VDC power module and after detecting the presence of the
bridge, injects the DC voltage into the dual-coax cables to power the bridge.
Note
The power injector and the power module should not be placed in an outdoor unprotected environment.
External Antenna
The bridge is available with an N-type RF connector on the front of the unit (see Figure 1-1) for an
external 5.8-GHz antenna. The supported external antennas connect to the bridge antenna connector
using the antenna’s 4.9-ft (1.5-m) coax cable.
•
9-dBi omnidirectional external antenna with vertical polarization
•
9.5-dBi sector external antenna
•
28-dBi dish external antenna
Note
To meet regulatory restrictions, the external antenna bridge configuration and the external antenna must
be professionally installed.
Note
Some international regulatory regions may restrict the use of external antennas.

Overview
Key Features
Integrated Antenna
The bridge is available with an integrated 22.5-dBi or 20-dBi patch array antenna. The antenna is
covered with a radome to protect it from environmental elements. When configured with the integrated
antenna, the antenna polarization is controlled by the mounting orientation of the bridge. The bridge
must be physically rotated 90 degrees to obtain either horizontal or vertical polarization. An arrow
indicating polarization is designed into the bridge housing to indicate the polarization direction.
Note
The 20-dBi integrated is available only on the low power bridge version for Korea.
Note
Some international regulatory regions may restrict the integrated antenna bridge configuration.
Ethernet Ports
The bridge’s power injector dual-coax ports accept a pair of 75-ohm F-type connectors, linking the
bridge to your 100BASE-T Ethernet LAN through the power injector. The dual-coax cables are used to
send and receive Ethernet data and to supply inline 48-VDC power from the power injector. For the
location of the ports, refer to Figure 1-2.
Tip
You can connect the dual-coax cable connectors to either of the bridge’s power injector dual-coax ports.
The bridge senses the Ethernet signals and automatically switches internal circuitry to match the cable
connections.
Metal Enclosure
The bridge uses a metal enclosure that supports outdoor operating environments and supports an
industrial temperature operating range (refer to “Bridge Specifications” section on page 1-8).

Install LED
The bridge LEDs are shown in Figure 1-2.
•
The install LED indicates that installation mode is activated. During installation mode, the other
LEDs provide signal strength readings used for antenna alignment.
•
The radio LED blinks green to indicate radio traffic activity. The light is normally off, but it blinks
green whenever a packet is received or transmitted over the bridge radio link. This LED also
provides signal strength readings during installation mode.
•
The status LED signals bridge association status. Blinking green indicates that the bridge is not
associated with another bridge. Steady green indicates that the bridge is associated with at least one
other bridge. This LED also provides signal strength readings during installation mode.

•
The Ethernet LED signals Ethernet traffic. This LED blinks green when a packet is received or
transmitted over the Ethernet infrastructure. The LED is off when the Ethernet link not working or
the port is shutdown. This LED also provides signal strength readings during installation mode.
For additional information on the LEDs, refer to “Checking the Bridge LEDs” section on page 6-2.
Receive Signal Strength Indicator Port
The bridge supports a receive signal strength indicator (RSSI) port for use in antenna alignment. The
RSSI port produces a DC voltage proportional to the strength of the received radio signal. The highest
voltage indicates the best antenna alignment position. The RSSI port is a female BNC connector located
on the bottom of the bridge housing (see Figure 1-2).
Note
The RSSI port requires the use of a voltmeter and a cable with a male BNC connector.
Network Configuration Examples
This section describes the bridge’s role in three common wireless network configurations.
Point-to-Point Configuration
In a point-to-point configuration, two bridges connect two remote LAN networks using a wireless
communication link (see Figure 1-3). The bridge connected to the main LAN network is classified as a
root bridge and the other bridge is classified as a repeater bridge.

Port Aggregation or Redundancy Configuration
The port aggregation or redundancy configuration (Figure 1-4) is used to provide increased bandwidth
or backup redundancy communications between two LANs. Port aggregation or increased bandwidth
occurs when both wireless links are used to simultaneously pass Ethernet traffic. Backup communication
redundancy can be achieved with this configuration when one wireless bridge link is used only if the
other wireless bridge link fails.

Safety Information
Warning
This unit is intended for installation in restricted access areas. A restricted access area can be
accessed only through the use of a special tool, lock and key, or other means of security.
Safety Information
Follow the guidelines in this section to ensure proper operation and safe use of the bridge.
FCC Safety Compliance Statement
The FCC, with its action in ET Docket 96-8, has adopted a safety standard for human exposure to RF
electromagnetic energy emitted by FCC-certified equipment. When used with approved Cisco Aironet
antennas, Cisco Aironet products meet the uncontrolled environmental limits found in OET-65 and ANSI
C95.1, 1991. Proper operation of this radio device according to the instructions in this publication results
in user exposure substantially below the FCC recommended limits.
Safety Precautions
Warning
Do not locate the antenna near overhead power lines or other electric light or power circuits, or
where it can come into contact with such circuits. When installing the antenna, take extreme care
not to come into contact with such circuits, as they may cause serious injury or death. For proper
installation and grounding of the antenna, please refer to national and local codes (e.g. U.S.:NFPA 70,
National Electrical Code, Article 810, in Canada: Canadian Electrical Code, Section 54).
Each year hundreds of people are killed or injured when attempting to install an antenna. In many of
these cases, the victim was aware of the danger of electrocution, but did not take adequate steps to avoid
the hazard.
For your safety, and to help you achieve a good installation, please read and follow these safety
precautions. They may save your life!
1.
If you are installing an antenna for the first time, for your own safety as well as others, seek
professional assistance.
2.
Select your installation site with safety, as well as performance in mind. Remember: electric power
lines and phone lines look alike. For your safety, assume that any overhead line can kill you.
3.
Call your electric power company. Tell them your plans and ask them to come look at your proposed
installation. This is a small inconvenience considering your life is at stake.
4.
Plan your installation carefully and completely before you begin. Successful raising of a mast or
tower is largely a matter of coordination. Each person should be assigned to a specific task, and
should know what to do and when to do it. One person should be in charge of the operation to issue
instructions and watch for signs of trouble.
5.
When installing your antenna, remember:
a. Do not use a metal ladder.
b. Do not work on a wet or windy day.

Installation Overview
Safety Information
c. Do dress properly—shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, long sleeved shirt or
jacket.
6.
If the assembly starts to drop, get away from it and let it fall. Remember, the antenna, mast, cable,
and metal guy wires are all excellent conductors of electrical current. Even the slightest touch of any
of these parts to a power line complete an electrical path through the antenna and the installer: you!
7.
If any part of the antenna system should come in contact with a power line, don’t touch it or try to
remove it yourself. Call your local power company. They will remove it safely.
If an accident should occur with the power lines call for qualified emergency help immediately.

Chapter 2
Installation Overview
Installation Guidelines
Installation Guidelines
Because the bridge is a radio device, it is susceptible to common causes of interference that can reduce
throughput and range. Follow these basic guidelines to ensure the best possible performance:
•
Install the bridge in an area where structures, trees, or hills do not obstruct radio signals to and from
the bridge.
•
Install the bridge at a height sufficient to provide clear line-of-sight signal path.
Site Surveys
Every network application is a unique installation. Before installing multiple bridges, you should
perform a site survey to determine the optimum use of networking components and to maximize range,
coverage, and network performance.
Consider the following operating and environmental conditions when performing a site survey:
•
Data rates—Sensitivity and range are inversely proportional to data bit rates. The maximum radio
range is achieved at the lowest workable data rate. A decrease in receiver sensitivity occurs as the
radio data increases.
•
Antenna type and placement—Proper antenna configuration is a critical factor in maximizing radio
range. As a general rule, range increases in proportion to antenna height. However, do not place the
antenna higher than necessary, because the extra height also increases potential interference from
other unlicensed radio systems.
•
Physical environment—Clear or open areas provide better radio range than closed or filled areas.
•
Obstructions—Physical obstructions such as buildings, trees, or hills can hinder performance of
wireless devices. Avoid locating the devices in a location where there is an obstruction between the
sending and receiving antennas.
Unpacking the Bridge
Note
If you are unpacking an external antenna bridge, do not remove the foam block attached to the face of
the bridge until the bridge is installed. The foam protects the antenna connector.
Follow these steps to unpack the bridge:
Step 1
Open the shipping container and carefully remove the contents.
Step 2
Return all packing materials to the shipping container and save it.
Step 3
Ensure that all items listed in the “Package Contents” section are included in the shipment. If any item
is damaged or missing, notify your authorized Cisco sales representative.

Mounting and Alignment Overview
Mounting the Bridge
Mounting the Bridge
Typically, the bridge is installed on a rooftop, mast, tower, wall, or a suitable flat surface. Each of these
installations requires a different approach. This document provides a mounting overview. For detailed
mounting instructions, refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge Mounting Instructions that
shipped with your bridge.
The bridge is available in two configurations:
Note
•
Integrated antenna bridge (with 22.5-dBi or 20-dBi directional antenna)
•
External antenna bridge (with antenna connector for use with an external antenna)
To meet regulatory restrictions, the external antenna bridge configuration and the external antenna must
be professionally installed.
Personnel installing the bridge must understand wireless bridging techniques, antenna alignment and
adjustment, and grounding methods. The integrated antenna configuration can be installed by an
experienced IT professional.
Mounting Hardware
The bridge is shipped with the following mounting hardware:
•
Multi-function mount (consisting of two bridge brackets and one mast bracket)
•
Fastener hardware (consisting of nuts, bolts, washers, and U-bolts)
Multi-function Mount
The multi-function mount provides a method for mounting the bridge on a mast, tower, or an optional
roof-mast mount. The multi-function mount permits easy azimuth and elevation adjustments for antenna
alignment purposes. The basic mounting procedure is shown below:
1.
Mount the two bridge brackets to the bridge with the support pins facing the sides of the bridge.
2.
Mount the mast bracket to the tower or mast using the supplied U-bolts.
3.
Suspend the bridge on the mast bracket using the bridge bracket support pins.
4.
Secure the bridge brackets to the mast bracket using the supplied nuts, bolts, and washers (hand
tighten).
5.
Connect the dual-coax cable to the power injector dual-coax ports (F-type connectors) on the bridge.
Note
You should securely tighten the cable connectors (15 to 20 inch-pounds) using a small wrench.
6.
Connect the ground wire to the bridge.
7.
Align the bridge and tighten the nuts and bolts.

Mounting and Alignment Overview
Bridge LEDs
Bridge Brackets
The two bridge brackets mount on the back side of the bridge housing. Each bracket mounts on two
screw posts on opposite ends of the unit. The support pin on the bridge bracket must be facing the side
of the unit. These support pins are used to suspend the bridge in the notches on the mast mounting
bracket until you secure the mounting bolts.
The bridge brackets must be positioned to obtain the correct antenna polarization that matches the
remote antenna. The bridge housing contains an antenna polarization mark consisting of an arrow on the
side of the housing. When the bridge is positioned so that the arrow is pointing up, the bridge antenna is
vertically polarized. For horizontal polarization, the arrow should be pointing from left to right. All
bridges must use the same antenna polarization for best operation.
Mast Bracket
The mast bracket attaches to a mast or tower support and is used to secure the bridge.The procedure for
attaching the mounting bracket to the support depends on the pipe diameter, as shown in Table 3-1.

The U-bolts supplied with the bridge support mast diameters up to 1.75 in. (44.5 mm). For larger masts,
you must supply the U-bolts to attach the bridge.
Bridge LEDs
When you power up the bridge for the first time, it starts in a special installation mode. The LEDs
indicate the startup status, operating mode, association status, and received signal strength. This
information simplifies the process of activating the link and positioning the antenna from the bridge
mounting location.
The LEDs are mounted on the back of the housing near the connectors (see Figure 3-1).

Mounting and Alignment Overview
Aligning the Antenna Using LED Indications
Use the Install LED to determine when the bridge successfully associates with a remote bridge and to
verify its mode of operation. After association, the other three LEDs indicate signal strength (see
Table 3-3).
The startup and association sequence depends on the bridge configuration, which can be one of the
following types:
•
Default—The bridge attempts to associate with a root bridge for 60 seconds. If it does not associate
with a root bridge, it then attempts to associate with a non-root bridge.
•
Preconfigured—The bridge attempts to associate with a remote bridge in the configured mode,
either root or non-root. Because there are no timeouts, it is easier to align the antenna.
Aligning the Antenna Using LED Indications
You can align the integrated antenna using LEDs after the bridge successfully associates with a remote
bridge. In the installation mode before association to another bridge, the Install LED blinks amber. If the
bridge associates to a root bridge, the Install LED turns continuous amber. If the bridge does not
associate to a root bridge in the first 60 seconds, the Install LED blinks green to indicate beacons are
being transmitted and the bridge is waiting for another non-root bridge to associate. After association,
the Install LED turns into continuous green and the Ethernet, status, and radio LEDs then display signal
strength as shown in Table 3-3).
Note
For the signal level (dBm), a smaller number represents a stronger signal because the signal level is given
as a negative value.

Mounting and Alignment Overview
Aligning the Antenna Using the RSSI Voltage
When using LEDs to maximize the signal, adjust the antenna until as many LEDs as possible are turned
on and the rest are blinking as fast as possible.
Aligning the Antenna Using the RSSI Voltage
The RSSI port produces a DC voltage that is proportional to the received signal level. The RSSI voltage
is available whenever a signal is present, regardless of the bridge mode (installation or normal),
association status, or pre configuration role setting. In Install mode, the RSSI voltage provides an
instantaneous reading as you move the antenna. In Normal mode, the RSSI reading has a delay, so you
must stop moving the antenna and wait before taking your reading. The RSSI port is a female BNC
connector on the bridge housing (see Figure 3-1).
The RSSI voltage increases linearly with signal level as shown in Table 3-4.
Note
A larger RSSI voltage reading indicates a stronger signal.

The voltage varies from 0 to 2.7 volts for signals between –90 and –20 dBm, respectively. The accuracy
over temperature and component variations is ± 4 dB. To obtain RSSI readings, you can use any
convenient voltmeter connected to the RSSI port using a cable with a male BNC connector.

Stacking Bridges
Overview
Overview
You can double the throughput, or create a standby link, by stacking two bridges. A stacked installation
consists of two bridge systems installed at the same physical location. For detailed mounting instructions
refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge Mounting Instructions that shipped with your
bridge.
Choosing a Second Mounting Location
You can mount the second bridge system in the same general location as the first as long as you separate
the antennas by at least 8 ft (2.44 m). For example, in a flat-roof installation you can separate the bridges
horizontally, roughly perpendicular to the line of signal propagation. In a tower installation, you can
separate the antennas vertically. During the activation process, you verify that the interference between
systems is acceptably low. Do not attempt to stack more than two bridges. Figure 4-1 identifies the
interference paths with stacked bridges.

Installing the Stacked Bridges
To install stacked bridges, refer to Figure 4-1 as you follow these steps:
Step 1
Install the link 1 bridges (bridges A and C) normally, but leave room at each site to install the link 2
bridges (bridges B and C).
Step 2
Activate the link 1 bridges, align the antennas, and verify proper operation of the link.
Step 3
At each site location, choose a candidate location for the second bridge that is at least 8 ft (2.44 m) away
from the first bridge. Separate the bridges as far as is practical from each other, keeping in mind that the
second antenna must have a clear path to the remote system.

Chapter 4
Stacking Bridges
Verifying Isolation
Step 4
At each site location, temporarily install the second link 2 bridge, positioning the antenna toward the
intended location of the corresponding link 2 remote antenna.
Note
You can improve system isolation by using different polarizations for the two local antennas. For
example, if the link 1 system has vertical polarization, assemble the link 2 system for horizontal
polarization.
Verifying Isolation
Isolation measurements are valid only if the link 1 bridges are operating at maximum power. By default,
the bridge operates at maximum power.
To verify signal isolation, refer to Figure 4-1 as you follow these steps:
Step 1
Ensure that the link 1 bridges are operating at full power and bridge A is configured as the root bridge.
Step 2
At Site 1, measure the isolation between bridges A and B:
Step 3
Step 4
a.
Activate the link 2 bridge (bridge B) as a non-root bridge and let it associate to bridge A (the root
bridge).
b.
Connect a voltmeter to the RSSI port of bridge B, and verify that the voltage is 1.95 V (–40 dBm)
or less. If the voltage exceeds 1.95 V, move the bridge farther away and repeat this procedure.
c.
Slowly rotate the bridge B antenna a few degrees to the left and to the right and verify that the RSSI
level does not rapidly spike above 1.95 V. If the voltage peaks above 1.95 V, move the bridge farther
away and repeat this step.
Go to the remote Site 2 location to measure the isolation between bridges A and D:
a.
Activate the link 2 bridge (bridge D) as a non-root bridge and let bridge D associate to bridge A (the
root bridge).
b.
Connect a voltmeter to the RSSI port of bridge D and align the bridge D antenna with bridge A so that
the RSSI voltage is maximized.
c.
When the antennas are fully aligned, if the RSSI voltage level is greater than 1.95 V, the bridge sites
are very close. Reduce the output power on all bridges at both sites (bridges A, B, C, and D) to 12
dBm.
d.
If you are still unable to reduce the RSSI voltage level to 1.95 V, change the polarization of the link
2 bridges (bridges B and D). For example; change the antenna polarization from vertical to
horizontal.
At Site 2, measure the isolation between bridge C and D by following these steps:
a.
Turn off bridge A for this measurement.
b.
Activate the link 2 bridge (bridge D) as a non-root bridge and the link1 bridge (bridge C) as a root
bridge and let bridge D associate to bridge C.
c.
Connect a voltmeter to the RSSI port of bridge D and verify that the voltage is 1.95 V (–40 dBm) or
less. If the voltage exceeds 1.95 V, move the bridge farther away and repeat this step.

Step 5
Slowly rotate the antenna of bridge D a few degrees to the left and to the right and verify that the
RSSI level does not rapidly spike above 1.95 V. If the voltage peaks above 1.95 V, move the bridge
farther away and repeat this step.
After you verify the isolation of the second bridge link, you must properly set the root and non-root
bridge settings for both links, align the link 2 bridge antennas, and verify proper link 2 operation.

Configuring the Bridge for the First Time
Before You Start
Before You Start
Before you install the bridge, make sure you are using a computer connected to the same network as the
bridge, and obtain the following information:
•
From your network system administrator:
– A system name
– The case-sensitive wireless service set identifier (SSID) for your radio network
– If not connected to a DHCP server, a unique IP address for your bridge (such as 172.17.255.115)
– If the bridge is not on the same subnet as your PC, a default gateway address and subnet mask
– A Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) community name and the SNMP file
attribute (if SNMP is in use)
•
If you use IPSU to find or assign the bridge IP address, the MAC address from the label on the
bottom of the bridge (such as 00164625854c)
Resetting the Bridge to Default Settings
If you need to start over during the initial setup process, follow these steps to reset the bridge to factory
default settings using the power injector’s Mode button:
Step 1
Disconnect the power jack from the power injector.
Step 2
Press and hold the power injector’s MODE button while you reconnect the power jack.
Step 3
Hold the MODE button until the Status LED turns amber (approximately 1 to 3 seconds) and wait until
the bridge boots up (Status LED turns green). All bridge settings return to factory defaults.
You can also use the web-browser interface to reset the bridge to defaults. Follow these steps to return
to default settings using the web-browser interface:
Step 1
Open your Internet browser. You must use Microsoft Internet Explorer (version 5.x or later) or Netscape
Navigator (version 4.x).
Step 2

Configuring the Bridge for the First Time
Obtaining and Assigning an IP Address
Note
If the bridge is configured with a static IP address, the IP address is not changed.
Obtaining and Assigning an IP Address
To browse to the bridge’s Express Setup page, you must either obtain or assign the bridge’s IP address
using one of the following methods:
•
Use default address 10.0.0.1 when you connect to the bridge locally. For detailed instructions, see
the “Connecting to the Bridge Locally” section on page 5-3.
•
Use a DHCP server (if available) to automatically assign an IP address. You can find the
DHCP-assigned IP address using one of the following methods:
– Provide your organization’s network administrator with your bridge’s Media Access Control
(MAC) address. Your network administrator will query the DHCP server using the MAC
address to identify the IP address. The bridge’s MAC address is on label attached to the bottom
of the bridge.
– Use the Cisco IP Setup Utility (IPSU) to identify the assigned address. You can also use IPSU
to assign an IP address to the bridge if it did not receive an IP address from the DHCP server.
IPSU runs on most Microsoft Windows operating systems: Windows 9x, 2000, Me, NT, and XP.
You can download IPSU from the Software Center on Cisco.com. For additional information
refer to the “Obtaining and Installing IPSU” section on page 5-9.
Connecting to the Bridge Locally
If you need to configure the bridge locally (without connecting the bridge’s power injector to a wired
LAN), you can connect a PC to the power injector’s Ethernet port using a Category 5 Ethernet cable. You
can use a local connection to the Ethernet port much as you would use a serial port connection.
Note
You do not need a special crossover cable to connect your PC to the bridge’s power injector; you
can use either a straight-through cable or a crossover cable.
If the bridge is configured with default values and not connected to a DHCP server or cannot obtain an
IP address, it defaults to IP address 10.0.0.1 and becomes a mini-DHCP server. In that capacity, the
bridge provides up to twenty IP addresses between 10.0.0.11 and 10.0.0.30 to an Ethernet-capable PC
connected to the power injector’s Ethernet port.
The mini-DHCP server feature is disabled automatically when you assign a static IP address to the
bridge.
Caution
When a bridge with default settings is connected on a wired LAN and does not receive an IP address
from a DHCP server, the bridge provides an IP address to any DHCP requests it receives.

Follow these steps to connect to the bridge locally:
Step 1
Make sure that the PC you intend to use is configured to obtain an IP address automatically, or manually
assign it an IP address from 10.0.0.31 to 10.0.0.40. Connect your PC to the power injector using a
Category 5 Ethernet cable. You can use either a crossover cable or a straight-through cable.
Note
When you connect your PC to the bridge’s power injector or reconnect your PC to the wired
LAN, you might need to release and renew the IP address on the PC. On most PCs, you can
perform a release and renew by rebooting your PC or by entering ipconfig /release and ipconfig
/renew commands in a command prompt window. Consult your PC operating instructions for
detailed instructions.
Step 2
Power up the power injector.
Step 3
Follow the steps in the “Assigning Basic Settings” section on page 5-4. If you make a mistake and need
to start over, follow the steps in the “Resetting the Bridge to Default Settings” section on page 5-2.
Step 4
After configuring the bridge, remove the Ethernet cable from your PC and connect the power injector to
your wired LAN.
Assigning Basic Settings
After you determine or assign the bridge’s IP address, you can browse to the bridge’s Express Setup page
and perform an initial configuration. Follow these steps:

bridge within 60 seconds, the bridge assumes a non-root bridge role. If the bridge is unable to
associate with another root bridge within 60 seconds, the bridge assumes a root bridge role.
You can also pre-configure the bridge into root or non-root modes and avoid the 60 seconds
automatic detection phase.
– Root—Specifies that the bridge connects directly to the main Ethernet LAN network and
accepts associations from other bridges.
– Non-root—Specifies that the bridge connects to a remote LAN network and must associate with
the root bridge using the wireless interface.
Note
•
When initially powered up, the bridge is configured in Install mode with automatic detection
activated.
Optimize Radio Network for—Use this setting to select either preconfigured settings for the bridge
radio or customized settings for the bridge radio.
– Throughput—Maximizes the data volume handled by the bridge but might reduce its range.
– Range—Maximizes the bridge’s range but might reduce throughput.
– Default—The bridge retains default radio settings that are designed to provide good range and
throughput for most bridges.
– Custom—The bridge uses settings you enter on the Network Interfaces: Radio-802.11a Settings
page. Clicking Custom takes you to the Network Interfaces: Radio-802.11a Settings page.
Step 7
Click Apply to save your settings. If you changed the IP address, you lose your connection to the bridge.

Configuring the Bridge for the First Time
Using the IP Setup Utility
Protecting Your Wireless LAN
To prevent unauthorized access to your network, you must configure security settings. Because the
bridge is a radio device, the bridge communicates beyond the physical boundaries of your building.
Refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge Software Configuration Guide to configure
security features to protect your network from intruders:
•
Unique SSIDs that are not broadcast in the bridge beacon
•
WEP and additional WEP features, such as TKIP and broadcast key rotation
•
Dynamic WEP and EAP authentication

Description
Power Injector LEDs
The power injector contains three LEDs to provide status information on the wired Ethernet link, the
bridge Ethernet link, and the bridge status. When the power injector is powered up, it sends a constant
discovery tone on the dual-coax cables to the bridge. When the bridge is connected to the dual-coax
cables, it returns the discovery tone to the power injector. When the power injector detects the returned
discovery tone, it applies +48 VDC to the dual-coax cables to the bridge.
When power is applied to the bridge, the bridge activates the bootloader and begins the POST operations.
The bridge begins to load the IOS image when the Post operations are successfully completed. Upon
successfully loading the IOS image, the bridge initializes and tests the radio.

Checking Basic Configuration Settings
Mismatched basic settings are the most common causes of lost wireless connectivity. If the bridge does
not associate with a remote bridge, check the following areas.
SSID
To associate, all bridges must use the same SSID. The bridge installation mode SSID is autoinstall and
the normal mode default SSID is tsunami. You should verify that the SSID value shown on the Express
Setup page is the same for all bridges. You should also verify that the bridges are configured for the
proper network role; only one bridge can be configured as the root bridge.
Security Settings
Remote bridges attempting to authenticate to your bridge must support the same security options
configured in the bridge, such as WEP, EAP or LEAP, MAC address authentication, Message Integrity
Check (MIC), WEP key hashing, and 802.1X protocol versions.
If a non-root bridge is unable to authenticate to your root bridge, verify that the security settings are the
same as your bridge settings. For additional information, refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless
Bridge Software Configuration Guide.
