Wired Bridge

Wired Bridge

A wireless bridge connects two wired networks together over Wi-Fi. The wirelessbridge acts as a client, logging in to the primary router and getting an Internet connection, which it passes on to the devices connected to its LAN Jacks.

The simplest way to setup a wired bridge connection between a  Primary router that is connected to Internet and a secondary router is to configure the secondary router as a “Bridge” .

Wired Bridge provides a transparent connection to all devices on the network.  The Bridge will connect two network segment. The two segments are in the same subnet and the two Ethernet switches will be connected by a cable will appear as one switch to all computers on the subnet. Since the computers are on the same subnet, broadcasts reach all machines. DHCP clients in one segment can get their addresses from a DHCP server in the other segment.
