I'm trying to associate a HostAP-driven device in Master mode to a Cisco
Aironet 350 Bridge, and I was wondering if anyone has noticed what I'm
seeing. Using a packet analyzer, I captured the association between two
Cisco Bridges and noticed a "Cisco Proprietary Element ID" in the
requesting bridge's Association Request. It looks like this:
Element ID: 133 Cisco Proprietary
AP Name: NONROOT.........
Number of clients: 0
Has anyone seen this before? It seems like this ID is required for a
device to be recognized by the Cisco bridge as able to forward bridge
traffic. What would be the best method of adding this information into an
association packet to "fool" the Cisco bridge?
