Etherchannel layer 2 AirFIBER antenna port

[ Edited ]

  

Hello everyone,
I am implementing a port aggregation solution on the cisco 2960 switches, my switches are connected via a wireless link with AirFiber antennas. here is my topology

each time I configure the etherchannel on the ports of two antennas to make a logical port with the PAgP or LCAP protocol, the antennas are no longer reachable (ping, http, etc.) but the traffic passes to the remote switch.

Any ideas?
sorry for my English

Out of interest, what led you to design this network in this way?

set up the link redundancy, and now i will want to use the two links directly issue of augumenter bandwidth because there is an application that requires this (bandwidth)

Ok, got it. It's been a while since I did LAG/PACP. @UBNT-Nick have you done this recently?

I've never configured this on a Cisco switch, no.

But this doesn't require anything special on the airFiber side, other than maybe enabling NxN mode or Strict Timing. (To mitigate interference depending on what radios you are using.)

Run a second cable to each radio/switch. 

 

Config the radios to use their management port and group all four radios management into a VLAN.

 

Just an idea.  Most folks I know that use this config use the management port for this very reason.

thank @j2840fl 

 

and 

 

to avoid port blocking (STP) and also the use of the management port that will add other cable to pull and port to use on the switch. How to solve the problem?

is there no other way to solve the problem without having added a network cable (UTP) to the port of manangement?
