    Hi Everyone

    I am using two WAP54G's in bridge mode connecting two network segments.
    Both segments contain IPX/SPX (Novell 4.x servers and clients and both ends) as well as Ip packets (Microsoft windows 2000 network with win2000 server for domain)

    Problem is

    When only the ms network is up (novell shut down) the bridges work fine no packet drops
    As soon as the novell servers are turned on the wireless link works for about 2-3 mins and then dies.

    I read some where that 802.3 raw frames cause this to happen ..

    IS there any solution ??
    (one solution is to use Layer3 managed switches at both ends to filter the packets .. but this is very expensive)
