Wireless APs for bridging
I've currently got two netgear WG102 APs as a network bridge between our main buildings and a seperate music department. The problem is they keep dropping the link, but will immediately re-establish it if both APs are restarted. Has anyone else had this problem? I'm considering swapping the APs out for new ones, but what would be recommended?

I know I keep going on about them - but the ruckus gear is still the best I've seen.
The bridging on the is just as good as all the other features - but of course you'll need a controller.
However, if you're thinking of wireless anyway, its by far the best (and one of the cheapest) solutions.

I use two 11n airport extreme base stations configured for WDS. Its been more reliable than the Dlink ones and the Belkin ones and the netgear that i had in the past. It bridges across our playgrounds to the nursery from the Main building.
Just checking it now since i haven't checked it before the six weeks using the utility provided and yep the link is still up

I have had no end of trouble with these APs.
The three that I have just suddenly stop working and need a restart. Not found a solution for this but hopefully replacing them at some point.

we have 2 point to point wireless bridges using netgear access poinrt bridges. 2 of them are v3 of whatever model it is (will fond out tomorrow) and work great, but the other 2 are v2 and altuogh thy say connected ath a good sigal strength, the pings are awful. First thing ill try is replacing the netgears on the bad link
