    no i need to know from some one who is using this hardware

    on the website there's no info about bridge mode
  2. 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.

    aren't there any good brand name ADSL routers in the market which have the bridge option mode built-in in GUI
  4. hmm not sure but i went to micro-center got a refurbished router for 30 bucks and flashed it with dd-wrt and turned it to repeater/bridge for my wrt610N it works great only thing if i disconnect the main router and plug it back in i have to disconnect all my computers and re connect them but no biggie

    thanks for your reply, i called up netgear support earlier

    actually i did that after i bought two Netgear ADSL modem/routers

    and to my shock the tech support told me none of their products have the bridge mode option !!!! :na:

    do you even know what a bridge mode is ? :(
  8. 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

    well i am not talking about that bridging !!!
  10. 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.
