Routers / Switches :: How To Put Linksys Befw11s4 Router Into Bridge Mode

Jan 27, 2012

My ISP insists that in order for me to have a home network use their router/modem ("2-Wire") for internet access, I must make my own network router act as a bridge since their modem is acting as the router. I.e. she said put your router into bridge mode. I don't know how to do that and Linksys won't offer assistance.

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Connect To EA4500 In Bridge Mode

Jan 16, 2013

I configured the EA4500 to work in bridge mode, to use it as an accespoint for an existing network (Linksys WRT610N). It gets an IP address (, but does not offer a wireless network (the ethernet ports do offer network acces). When I try to access the configuration on IP address I get the Linksys Smart Wifi page asking for the password. When I enter the password, a message "Waiting" appears and that's all. It keeps me waiting forever and I cannot access the configuration settings.I have tried to reset the router (30sec. reset button, power off 30sec, power on) but the result is the same.

I live in a school residence with a roomate and we both have an internet connection in our rooms but it's two separate networks since we can't see eachothers pc on the network. Both our pcs are connected to a switch and those switches are connected to the two internet connections. I would like to know how to bridge those two networks using a router in the living room. I would also connect a printer and an xbox to the router so we can both access the printer, the xbox can access both pcs and we can access eachother's pc.

Cisco Routers :: RV120W / Configure Bridge Mode For Internet Access?

Jan 1, 2013

We have a RV120W Wireless-N VPN Firewall and we want to configure the router in brigde mode (transparent). Because we have another Firewall, use for filtering and default gateway on the LAN. The ISP provide IP address by DHCP, so we must connect the internet connexion to the WAN interface. But How can we do for connected the RV120W to our firewall? The router mode on the RV120w allows-it to make this configuration?

Cisco Routers :: RV120W / Bridge Mode And Multiple Static IP Addresses

Sep 11, 2011

I am trying to configure a BT Business ADSL Router (BT2700HGV) to work in bridge mode in front of a Cisco RV120W router and cannot get this to work.I have followed numerous posts I have come across in configuring the BT router for bridged mode and this has been configured as follows:
ATM Encapsulation - Bridge LLC
DSL and ATM - VPI=0, VCI=38 (also tried VCI=35)
ATM PVC Search - Disabled
Connection Type - Direct IP (DHCP or Static)
Disable Routing - Yes

There are also some other options on the same configuration page for 'Broadband IP Network' (which I have left on DHCP) and also a 'Public IP' which has been left blank.  After setting the above options this removes the LAN DHCP configuration, the PPPoA logon details and sets the internal IP address of the BT router to
My understanding of 'Bridge' mode is that this router will now act simply as a modem and configuration details such as logon details and WAN IP address information are configured using the Cisco RV120W router?The configuration of the Cisco router is as follows:
Internet Connection Type - PPPoE
Username and Password set
Authentication Type - Auto-Negotiate (options here are PAP, CHAP, MS-CHAP and MS-CHAPv2)
Routing Mode - Router (Other option is 'Gateway (NAT))' - I have tried both options
The WAN interface on the Cisco router is connected to one of the LAN ports on the BT router.  The 'Broadband' light is on the BT router but the 'Internet' light isn't.  The WAN status on the Cisco router is 'Connecting'.  I am sure I am missing something simple.We have been assigned a range of static IP addresses from BT so am trying to get these working too (x.x.x.24/29 - 5 usable statics), another option available (other than PPPoE) for configuring the WAN interface on the Cisco router is a 'Static IP', not sure if this is the correct option but have tried messing with it, I have tried assigning a static IP from the range given to us (.30 - the router address specified by BT) along with the subnet mask, however don't know what to put as the default gateway, would this be the peer address (but assume that would change anyway), in any case, using the 'Static IP' option does not give an option to supply the BT logon details which I assume is required?
In bridged mode, what is the peer address assigned to, the BT router or the Cisco router?Does the BT router need to be configured with a public IP address?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using E4200 In Bridge Mode?

May 1, 2012

I have a E4200 with 1.0.04 firmware that I've used for a while as a router in front of a cable modem. I have upgraded the modem to a Virgin Media SuperHub. I have connected my E4200's WAN port to one of the SuperHub's LAN ports and changed the E4200's mode to Bridged Mode.I can connect to the Internet wirelessly and wired on the SuperHub, but I can only connect to the Internet via the E4200 if I'm wired to it. The wireless will connect to the E4200, it gets allocated and IP address in the correct range and the gateway is shown as the SuperHub's IP address, and I can see the E4200's management website via wireless, but I cannot connect to anything beyond the E4200.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using EA3500 In Bridge Mode?

Feb 16, 2013

I bought the EA3500 nine months ago mainly for the USB port (for a NAS). I recently replaced Comcast Cable with Verizon FIOS. So I now have the FIOS router as my main router (its' IP address is I put the EA3500 in bridge mode to extend the (wired) network. I could get: After going in to bridge mode (with DHCP), I can not log in to the EA3500 (IP address assigned by the FIOS router). I connect my computer directly to one of  the EA3500 numbered ports (after various combinations of rebooting EA3500 and rebooting PC). It just continues to say "waiting" and never logs in. Tried choosing a static route (tried both and with, gateway and DNS1 = with no luck.Since I can't log in, I cannot set up my NAS on the USB port of the EA3500 (so I haven't gotten far enough to determine if the USB port will even work in bridge mode).Thought about ensuring the latest firmware but since I can't log in I can't do that. (And after a hard reset EA3500 IP address is which creates conflict with FIOS)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Possible To Put It Into Bridge Mode

Sep 26, 2011

As I understand, the latest FW for the E4200 makes it possible to put he router into bridge mode. In this mode, I can use it as an access point. In bridge mode, should I then connect my router to the WAN port at the E4200?The other way to make the E4200 into an AP, is to disable DHCP and NAT and give the E4200 an IP address out of range for the DHCP range in my preferred router.

Choosing between this two option to make the E4200 into an AP, which is considered to be the best solution?And to be sure; using this option, then the Ethernet cable should be connected to the LAN port of the E4200? is the performance of an E4200 in AP mode the same as a dedicated AP like the WAP610N?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 In Bridge Mode

Aug 20, 2011

Just bought 2 e4200's!  I have the first one connected to the ATT router, and I have the second one connected to the first in Bridge Mode.  It works great! It knew how to configure itself to be the down-level client.
However, I noticed that the port speed is only 100 Mbps on the port that is acting as the link for the bridge.  I am running brand-new CAT5e thru the house, and if I connect the cable directly to my laptop - I get 1Gbps. So I know that the cable is good.
Is there a way to change the speed of the INET port on the down-level e4200?

Linksys Wireless Router :: To Know If Bridge Mode Set Up UTA200

Dec 26, 2008

I have just purchased t-mobile's at home phone service (voip) and they gave me a UTA200-TM Hiport Adaptor to connect for the service.  Had Vonage (voip) for 2 years so know how it works and never had problems.  This one however will only allow the phone line to stay on for about 30 seconds and then drop it.  Have it connected to a modem (cable internet) and a WRT54GS Wireless Router.  T-Mobile wants me to check to see if the router has bridge mode set up as they think that may be causing the phone line to drop out.  How can I check that?  I can not figure out the directions on the linksys site, too confusing.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Works In Bridge Mode Only

Nov 5, 2012

Restarting the e4200 did not work.  Resetting using the switch at the back did not resolve the issue.  I was able to reset it via the web page.  After restoring my settings from backup, the issue remained the same.  This was not alleviated after I updated the firmware.  Plugging into one of the ports with a cat5 cable with my Mac, I was able to get an IP, yet I was not able to surf; same case with my MacBook.
Doing the 30-30-30 reboot did not fix this issue and all the while the front white light on the router went and stayed, solid.To see if I could get this to do ANY sort of meaningful internetting (is that even a word?) I put the e4200 in bridge mode and when I put the cable modem in, and all that plugs into this router works.  This, of course, means that there is:
1. No Wifi signal and

2. It will not reset to factory settings.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Locks Up In Bridge Mode?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Use Multiple E4200 In Bridge Mode?

Aug 10, 2011

I have four E4200 units on my network, each with an unique IP address, in bridge mode to act as a wireless mesh across my entire building.   They are all connected to my central L3 switch, via their Internet ports.
Is it possible to enable the Guest network on each unit, to create a 'Guest Wifi' mesh (providing that I allow the network to route across my network fabric), or will this not work because each indivudual AP will be assigning IP address as it's gateway address meaning that I would have four distinct MAC addresses within the network, each trying to claim that they are IP

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200V2 Bridge Mode Disconnects

Mar 15, 2012

I have an E4200V2 with the latest .36 firmware installed.The E4200V2 is setup in Bridge Mode. THe 4200 DHCP's an IP for itself from my network infrastructure. This consists of a UBEE DOCSIS 3 (gig E output) modem on a 100 meg cable connection feeding an IP Cop Linux router/firewall and out to a gig switch, fully gig E on the network side. The wired portion of the network is absolutely bulletproof. And the older B only AP that ran well was also on this same setup.I have the E4200V2 set for N only on the 5 GHz side, and I had it set to Auto for channel selection, but manually set an unused channel currently. The 2.5 GHz side is set also manually to a locally unused channel now, and is set to mixed mode as I have B/G/N devices I need to connect to. The unused  channel for both radios was detemined by scanning for AP activity using one of my Linux laptops.  I have both the 5 GHz and 2.5 GHz radios  set for 20/40 channel width. And I am using the recommended WPA2-Personal for security on both, with a separate SSID name for each radio.
The wireless connection for both E4200 V2 radios disconnects on fairly random but regular times and has to reconnect. This happens on both radios. There is no interference, and no network feed issues that would cause this. And the older B only Orinoco AP I replaced never had these issues. Signals are strong to all of the devices and the dropouts occur even when testing with a laptop several feet from the E4200V2. If I am streaming a video over GoogleTV or music or playing an online game, the 4200 disconnects regularly and the devices need to reconnect. This happens on both radios and to every device.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Limitations In Bridge Mode

Jan 3, 2012

I have a Fiber to Ethernet connector from my ISP. The Ethernet cable goes to an iSP issued Zyxel router. Into this router the landline phoneservice connects to give us VoIP landline service (which is cheaper). An Ethernet cable goes from the Internet port on the E4200 to a LAN port on the Zyxel router. That works great but I had to put the E4200 into Bridge Mode to get it to connect to the Internet via the Zyxel router which I need to use the phone services my ISP provides. I bought the E4200 because I wanted to use the dualband functionally and get a 802.11N 5GHz network setup and to give me the ability to block certian websites and services which I knew Cisco/Linksys is famous for - the abillity to control your network. 
Well then imagine my surprise when I could not use the Parental Control settings when the router is in Bridge Mode... This was the reason I bought this router over an Apple Airport Exreme. Is there anyway to get it to let me use the Parental Control anyway while in Bridge Mode or a better way for me to connect the router with the rest of my network?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 As Access Point / Bridge Mode?

Sep 6, 2011

I have spent most of the weekend trying to get this router to act as a proper Access Point.
When it does work (Stay connected) speeds and latency are rotten. If I go back to Routing Mode this thing kicks butt, but I isolate all devices attached to a different subnet and trying to set up proper routes has proved imposable. Firmware 1.0.2 r 13
The online help stated to connect to the "internet interface" when in Bridge Mode DHCP Server Is not broadcasting to on the wireless or wired interfaces.
If I used the wired interface as the uplink I can broadcast the DHCP to any device on wired but again nothing to the Wireless. When I "Show Routing Table" I see two static routes pointing to the ATT router for the Wired/Wireless Interfaces.. (my Gateway) Wired/Wireless (my Gateway) 0.0.0. Wired/Wireless
AP mode should only be working in Broadcast. By connecting the Wired Interfaces alone up to my switched network should not use the router at all. If you force all traffic to my router all traffic has to be inspected by the firewall You create a bottleneck my router interface is 10/100.
ATT 2 Wire Gateway/Router with pinholes. 10/100/1000 Non managed 24 port Switch Network. Server infrastructure serving DNS/DHCP.
I decided to buy this after reading it offered Bridge/Access Point mode instead of getting the WAP610 because I wanted to have the option to change to routing mode or AP mode. Since my ATT Uverse Router Wireless is “g” it takes forever to transfer files to and from my servers.

Linksys Wireless Router :: How To Configure E2500 In Wired Bridge Mode

Jan 25, 2012

My client has a DSL modem and a Belkin wired 4-port router configured to connect to it using PPPoE.  Apparently there is no way to configure the E2500 such that it may be dropped in as a direct replacement for the Belkin (which would also provide wireless access) without the PPPoE login/password (from the DSL provider, Verizon).
I would like to connect the "Internet" port of the E2500 to one of the Belkin's 4 ports, in order to use the E2500 for wireless internet access without using any of the 4 wired ports but I think this creates a NAT within an existing NAT network? 
To avoid that if I configure the E2500 in wired bridge mode, it becomes transparent, and I can no longer access its administration interface using the address (since that address belongs to the Belkin).  How may I, for example, change the wireless password which the E2500 is in wired bridge mode?
