Hi Wicaksono,

could you be a little more specific?
You are looking for a way to create wireless bridge between two APs, right?
For this we recommend to use MeshConnex policy (MCX) and map it as BSS1 on 5GHz enabled radio.

However I have WiNG 5.8 running the process is almost the same.
Go to Configuration - Wireless - MeshConnex Policy



Then under Configuration - Devices / Profile - Interfaces - Radio2 - WLAN / MESH mapping assign the MCX you created



If you need more details please refer to WiNG 5.5 Reference Guide or take a look into MeshConnex Overview document available under following link

Edit: Here is document for Virtual Controller environment

Wicaksono,

I forgot one important thing - you need to map the MeshConnex policy to a device / profile.



Please let me know if you have any issues with your deployment.

Hello Tuan,
This error 404 because of you email haven't associated with an account or don't have an valid Service contract. But you could still open a case through email(still need to check the service contract for the tech support). Please view the GTAC user guide from below link for more detail about how to open case by email.
