Solved Making a wireless bridge through WiFi not Wired LAN Tags: LAN Routers WiFi Servers Wireless Wireless Router Wireless Network Last response: April 26, 2013 8:07 AM in Wireless Networking Share max991852 April 26, 2013 7:42:53 AM Hi All, Scenario: I have a tower server and a NAS (very quiet, and hidden under my desk) in my bedroom where the wireless router is located. Then one day I decided to buy a $190 2U rack-mount server from Ebay just for testing, however, I found out that noise is extremely loud, hence I decided to move it to the living room. But the problem is that I don't want to take a LAN cable all the way from my bedroom to the living room. Bedroom Room (Wireless Router) --> Wired --> 2U Rack-mount Server Is it possible to use another router and get the signal off from the Living room's router and use a wired connection to the new router itself? Living Room (Wireless Router) --> Wireless --> Another Router --> Wired --> 2U Rack-mount Server EDIT: Thanks for the reply! Does any router with bridge mode works? There are several very cheap routers that do support bridge mode, or does it have to be a specific type of bridge mode? Thanks All More about : making wireless bridge wifi wired lan Best solution nukemaster a b F Wireless April 26, 2013 7:48:20 AM Some routers do support bridge mode and can do EXACTLY that. I remember seeing it in some netgear units. Furthermore, Any router that supports DD-WRT(they have a good list of supported devices including the generally cheap WRT54G(and the l version) from linksys) can do it.

Share das_stig a b F Wireless April 26, 2013 8:07:44 AM If you go to the main DD-WRT website, they have a list of compatible routers and then buy a cheap one, soemthing like a Linksys E series or go with a powerline setup. m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
