Introduction

The Cisco Aironet 1400 Series 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 and supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint configurations.

The bridge uses a browser-based management system, but you can also configure the bridge using the command-line interface (CLI) through a Telnet session, Cisco IOS commands, or Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP).

System Requirements

You can install Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEA2 on all 1400 series bridges.

Finding the Software Version

To find the version of Cisco IOS software running on your bridge, use a Telnet session to log into the bridge and enter the show version EXEC command. This example shows command output from a bridge running Cisco IOS Release 12.3(7)JA:

bridge> show version
Cisco Internetwork Operating System Software
IOS (tm) C1410 Software (C1410-K9W7-M), Version 12.3(7)JA
Copyright (c) 1986-2003 by Cisco Systems, Inc.
 
   

You can also find the software version on the System Software Version page in the bridge's web-browser interface.

New Features

No new bridge features are introduced in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEA2.

Caveats

This section lists open and resolved caveats for the bridge.

Open Caveats

These caveats are open in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEA2:

CSCed36462—Per-VLAN crypto settings are nonfunctional with wireless bridges.

On wireless bridges, all VLANs traversing the bridge link must use the same encryption settings. To avoid confusion, do not use the "vlan <vlan-id> keyword on the encryption command as shown in the following example:

interface dot11radio0 
encryption key 1 size 128bit AAAAABBBBBCCCCCDDDDDEEEEEF transmit-key 
encryption mode wep mandatory mic
 
   

CSCsd91189—Bad cookie is returned from driver resulting in loss of client association.

Resolved Caveats

The following caveats are resolved in Cisco IOS Release 12.3(8)JEA2:

CSCsi78162—A router that has the SNA Switch feature enabled can generate several messages along with tracebacks.

CSCsj16292—After an upgrade to 12.2(18)SXF9, the following message is displayed:

%DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error-Traceback= 
 
   

CSCsj18014—The caller ID is received with extra characters.

CSCsj44081—Cisco IOS Software has been enhanced with the introduction of additional software checks to signal improper use of data structures. This feature has been introduced in select Cisco IOS Software releases published after April 5, 2007.

Details: The %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY error message is preceded by a timestamp: May 17 10:01:27.815 UTC: %DATACORRUPTION-1-DATAINCONSISTENCY: copy error. The error message is then followed by a traceback.

CSCse56501—A device running Cisco IOS software that has Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) enabled may be subject to a denial of service (DoS) attack. For the device to be affected by this vulnerability the device also has to have certain Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) User Datagram Protocol (UDP) services enabled. To exploit this vulnerability an offending IPv6 packet must be targeted to the device. Packets that are routed throughout the router can not trigger this vulnerability. Successful exploitation will prevent the interface from receiving any additional traffic. The only exception is Resource Reservation Protocol (RSVP) service, which if exploited, will cause the device to crash. Only the interface on which the vulnerability was exploited will be affected.

Cisco is providing fixed software to address this issue. There are workarounds available to mitigate the effects of the vulnerability.
