Layer 2 issue between Bridge and AP

Tags:
802.11 networking equipment
We have a Tsunami QB20 Bridge that at the remote end connects to an Orinoco AP 600 Access Point. If there is a power failure in this location obviously both devices reboot. When both devices come up, it would appear that the QB cannot see the MAC of the AP therefore communications between the Bridge and AP functions unusually. The QB takes about 5 seconds to boot while the AP takes 30 or so. To resolve the issue immediately the QB can be power cycled. It would seem that the QB times out waiting for layer 2 on it's interface. ???... As a work around we have place a UPS in the location to prevent the units from powering down. Although a UPS seems logical, I still think there is an issue here? Any thoughts? Proxim doesn't seem to even know what to do here...

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Not a solution – just more information gathering
Have you placed a sniffer between the two to see what DOES happen?

    It could be a spped issue. Check to see what the port connects as when it connects properly. Then check to see what the port settings are when it fails. It could negotiate to half duplex. Force both devices to the good connection speed and duplex.
