Description (partial)

In a daisy-chain topology consisting of one root AP and two repeaters, clients associated to AP#3 are not able to ping AP#1 nor the default gateway.  However, AP#3 can ping just fine all the devices along the path.

                      Root Acesss Point  Repeater#1   Repeater#2

LAN --|Switch|-----|AP1|)))(((|AP2|)))(((|AP3| (((( |client|
                                                                             (((( |client|
Fail ----------------------------------------------Ping
                   Fail ---------------------------Ping

This failure happens only when AP#3 is a 'new' model like 2600, 3500, 3600.  Issue does not occur when AP is 1242.  End user is using 1310 bridges as Root and Repeater#1, and a 2600 series as AP#3.  Partner is able to recreate this consistenly using 1242's as Root and Repeater#1 and using a 2600 and 3600 as Repeater#3.
