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).

Chapter 1 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.

Chapter 1 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 ).

Network Configuration Examples

• 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.

3.

4.

5.

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.

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.

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.

When installing your antenna, remember: a.

Do not use a metal ladder.

b.

Do not work on a wet or windy day.

7.

c.

Do dress properly—shoes with rubber soles and heels, rubber gloves, long sleeved shirt or jacket.

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!

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

Step 2

Step 3

Open the shipping container and carefully remove the contents.

Return all packing materials to the shipping container and save it.

Ensure that all items listed in the

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:

Integrated antenna bridge (with 22.5-dBi or 20-dBi directional antenna)

External antenna bridge (with antenna connector for use with an external antenna)

Note 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:

Chapter 3 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

.

Attach the pipe outside the mounting bracket, away from the bridge.

Note 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

).

Chapter 3 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.

Chapter 3 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.

Chapter 4 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.

Figure 4-1 as you follow these steps:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

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).

Activate the link 1 bridges, align the antennas, and verify proper operation of the link.

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.

OL-4072-04

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

Step 2

Step 3

Step 4

Ensure that the link 1 bridges are operating at full power and bridge A is configured as the root bridge.

At Site 1, measure the isolation between bridges A and B: 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.

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.

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.

c.

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.

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.

b.

c.

Turn off bridge A for this measurement.

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.

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.

Verifying Isolation

Step 5 d.

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.

Chapter 5 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

Step 2

Step 3

Disconnect the power jack from the power injector.

Chapter 5 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.

Chapter 5 Configuring the Bridge for the First Time

Assigning Basic Settings

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.

Assigning Basic Settings

• Role in Radio Network —Click on the check box and button that describes the role of the bridge on your network.

– Install Mode —Activates the bridge install and alignment mode. Specifies that the bridge automatically determines the network role. If the bridge is able to associate to another root 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.

Step 7

• 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.

Click Apply to save your settings. If you changed the IP address, you lose your connection to the bridge.

Browse to the new IP address to reconnect to the bridge.

Note You can restore the bridge to its factory defaults by unplugging the power injector’s power jack and plugging it back in while holding down the Mode button for a few seconds, or until the Status

What To Do Next

After your bridge has basic settings, you need to complete your bridge’s configuration. You might need to adjust the output power level and other network and security settings.

Output Power Level

Your bridge’s output power level might require adjustment under the following conditions:

The bridge’s output power level must be reduced when using an external dish antenna or when using the integrated antenna in a multipoint configuration (refer to

“Channels and Maximum Power

Levels” section on page C-1 ).

When bridges are installed less than 328 ft (100 m) apart, you should reduce their output power to avoid overloading the bridge’s receivers.

To configure your bridge’s output power level, refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge

Software Configuration Guide .

Chapter 5 Configuring the Bridge for the First Time

Using the IP Setup Utility

Using IPSU to Find the Bridge’s IP Address

If your bridge receives an IP address from a DHCP server, you can use IPSU to find its IP address.

Because IPSU sends a reverse-ARP request based on the bridge MAC address, you must run IPSU from a computer on the same subnet as the bridge. Follow these steps to find the bridge’s IP address:

Step 1 Double-click the IPSU icon on your computer desktop to start the utility. The IPSU screen appears (see

Figure 5-3

).

Figure 5-3 IPSU Get IP Address Screen

Step 2

Step 3

When the utility window opens, make sure the Get IP address radio button in the Function box is selected.

Enter the bridge’s MAC address in the Device MAC ID field. The bridge’s MAC address is printed on the label on the bottom of the unit. It should contain six pairs of hexadecimal digits. Your bridge’s MAC address might look like the following example:

000164xxxxxx

Note The MAC address field is not case sensitive.

Step 4

Step 5

Click Get IP Address .

When the bridge’s IP address appears in the IP Address field, write it down.

If IPSU reports that the IP address is 10.0.0.1, the default IP address, the bridge did not receive a

DHCP-assigned IP address. To change the bridge IP address from the default value using IPSU, refer to the

“Using IPSU to Set the Bridge’s IP Address and SSID” section on page 5-11 .

Assigning an IP Address Using the CLI

Step 6

Step 7

Click Set Parameters to change the bridge’s IP address and SSID settings.

Click Exit to exit IPSU.

Assigning an IP Address Using the CLI

When you connect the bridge to the wired LAN, the bridge links to the network using a bridge virtual interface (BVI) that it creates automatically. Instead of tracking separate IP addresses for the bridge’s

Ethernet and radio ports, the network uses the BVI.

When you assign an IP address to the bridge using the CLI, you must assign the address to the BVI.

Beginning in privileged EXEC mode, follow these steps to assign an IP address to the bridge’s BVI:

Step 1

Step 2

Step 3

Command configure terminal interface bvi1 ip address address mask

Purpose

Enter global configuration mode.

Enter interface configuration mode for the BVI.

Assign an IP address and address mask to the BVI. This step automatically saves the running configuration to the startup configuration.

Note You lose your connection to the bridge when you assign a new IP address to the BVI. If you need to continue configuring the bridge, use the new IP address to open another Telnet session to the bridge.

Using a Telnet Session to Access the CLI

Follow these steps to access the CLI using a Telnet session. These steps are for a PC running Microsoft

Windows with a Telnet terminal application. Check your PC operating instructions for detailed instructions for your operating system.

Step 1

Step 2

Select Start > Programs > Accessories > Telnet .

If Telnet is not listed in your Accessories menu, select Start > Run , type Telnet in the entry field, and press Enter .

When the Telnet window appears, click Connect and select Remote System .

Note In Windows 2000, the Telnet window does not contain drop-down menus. To start the Telnet session in Windows 2000, type open followed by the bridge’s IP address.

Step 3 In the Host Name field, type the bridge’s IP address and click Connect .

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.

If the dual-coax cable is connected properly and not defective, contact technical support for assistance.

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 .

Antenna Alignment

Antenna Alignment

If your non-root bridges are unable to associate to your root bridge, you should verify the basic configuration settings on all bridges before attempting to verify bridge antenna alignment (refer to

“Configuring the Bridge for the First Time” section on page 5-1 ). If your basic configuration settings are

correct, you can verify antenna alignment by using the RSSI port. The RSSI port can be used even when

the bridges are not associated. For additional information, refer to the “Aligning the Antenna Using the

RSSI Voltage” section on page 3-6 .

Note To meet regulatory restrictions, the external antenna bridge configuration and the external antenna must be professionally installed.

For detailed alignment instructions, refer to the Cisco Aironet 1400 Series Wireless Bridge Mounting

Instructions that shipped with your bridge.

Appendix A Translated Safety Warnings

Installation and Grounding Warning

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, because they may cause serious injury or death. For proper installation and grounding of the antenna, please refer to national and local codes (for example, U.S.:NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, Article 810, Canada: Canadian Electrical Code,

Section 54).

Waarschuwing

Varoitus

Zorg dat antenne niet in de buurt wordt geplaatst van langs het plafond lopende stroomkabels of andere voorzieningen voor licht of elektriciteit of op een plaats waar contact met dergelijke stroomvoorzieningen mogelijk is. Wees bij het installeren van de antenne voorzichtig dat u niet in contact komt met dergelijke stroomvoorzieningen aangezien dit kan leiden to ernstig lichamelijk of dodelijk letsel. Voor het juist installeren en aarden van de antenne, dient u de nationale en plaatselijke verordeningen te raadplegen (bijv. in de VS NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, Artikel

810, in Canada: Canadian Electrical Code, Sectie 54).

Älä sijoita antennia lähelle voimajohtoja, muita sähkövalo- tai virtapiirejä tai paikkaa, jossa se voi joutua kosketuksiin sellaisten piirien kanssa. Kun asennat antennia, varo, ettet joudu kosketuksiin mainittujen piirien kanssa, sillä seurauksena voi olla vakava vamma tai kuolema. Tarkista antennin asennus- ja maadoitustiedot kansallisista ja paikallisista sähkösäännöksistä (esimerkiksi

Yhdysvalloissa NFPA 70, National Electrical Code, Article 810 ja Kanadassa Canadian Electrical

Code, Section 54).

Attention Ne placez pas l'antenne à proximité d'une ligne aérienne ou d'autres circuits d'éclairage ou d'alimentation, ou dans un endroit où elle risque d'être en contact avec des circuits de ce type. Lors de son installation, assurez-vous bien qu'elle ne touche pas de tels circuits car cela risquerait d'entraîner des blessures graves, voire mortelles. Pour une installation et mise à la terre correctes de l'antenne, veuillez consulter les codes nationaux et locaux (par exemple, États-Unis : NFPA 70,
