no have to flash it with dd-wrt..


linksys routers don't offer those options

just check their website not support so you gotta look for another program or if dint buy the router yet (from your statment above sounds like you dint) you can get a router for cheap and do it.

ya by your statement your trying to bridge two different networks - the WAN (internet) and the LAN (whatever you've got connected to it). It doesn't try and do anything else with the data. I stated the DD-wrt because there firmware lets you do things normally cant do with out of box router

You're trying to bridge to APs together to create a wireless link between the two, right? Otherwise you would be stuck running a wire instead.

Since all the Linksys stuff went end user stupid with their pretty pictures on the box and no detailed info, I don't know if it offers AP bridging. Previously you had to purchase an AP exclusively to get the feature.

You can though research other firmwares that are available that others have created that may include the bridging ability.

To answer your question, I don't know if it comes with bridging mode by default. Again, look into 3rd party firmwares that may offer the feature if it does not come with it.
