Using Laptop As A Wireless Bridge

Sep 2, 2012

I have a laptop with a wireless adapter. I have a desktop without a wireless adapter. Both of these pc's have windows 7. I have the laptop and desktop connected by an ethernet cord, and the laptop has a wireless connection to the router. In Network Connections under the control panel, I used the Bridge Connections option to bridge the pc's together.At my friend's place, this is usually the end of this process as my desktop will have internet access and run fine. At my own place, however, the desktop will not have any internet until I set a static IP for it. Also at my place, games on the desktop tend to run with a lot of lag due to the internet.

- My friend has a cheap $30 ASUS router, i don't know the exact model of it atm

- My place uses a motorola sbg 6580 modem/router

Cannot Connect Xbox 360 To Laptop Using Bridge Connection

Jan 25, 2013

I am having trouble with connecting my Xbox 360 to the internet through my laptop using a bridge connection. Everything works absolutely fine, after reading all of the posts in URL,I followed practically the same steps, using my network information instead. The xbox finds the network but the DNS servers cannot resolve the names of the Xbox live servers or was wondering if there was a step somewhere I had missed or needs to be changed. I've already gone through the motions of checking the router and everything.

Bridge Internet Connection Received From Laptop To Desktop With An Ethernet Cable

Apr 13, 2011

I am trying to bridge internet connection received from my laptop to my desktop with an ethernet cable. Both machines are running win 7.When I try to connect to my local area connection on the desktop most of the time it fails and I'm left with 'Unidentified network' and no internet connection. Sometimes, rarely it does connect properly but I get a notification about there being an IP conflict in the network, but things work as they should.When I diagnose the problem it tells me that "Local Area Connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration"

Home Network :: Use Laptop As Network Tap Between (DSL) Modem And Wrt54gs By Creating A Bridge?

Jan 8, 2013

I'm experimenting/attempting to use a laptop as a network tap between my (DSL) modem and a wrt54gs by creating a bridge with two NICs in the laptop. My problem is I can't seem to get connectivity on the user end of the router. I can't ping the bridge from an end computer...

DHCP is disabled in the router, but even when manually configuring the IP address on an end computer and using the bridge as a default gateway I can't ping out.

Am I completely misunderstanding the purpose of a NIC bridge?

Setting Up Wireless Bridge

Jan 17, 2011

I need to figure out a network setup for my house between modem connected to one wireless bridge connected to another wireless router connected to wired router.The reason why I decided to make this evil setup is due to insufficient range between my wireless router and desktop pc upstairs. However, in the room next to it I have a very good wireless signal and a possibility to bridge it to wired network installed in my house. But in order to do it I guess I need to bridge that wireless signal via wireless router or bridge to wired network. [code]

Unable To Setup Wireless Bridge?

Jul 23, 2012

I've already done plenty of web search and gone through various forums. That's how I've gained knowledge of setting up wireless bridge. But for some unknown reasons I haven't been able to successfully pull it off. Let me explain.I have an ISP provided modem+wifi device. Its called PTCL Modem. I normally connect my laptop and other devices through its wifi. I need to extend the signals around my workplace. So I have bought a TP-Link wifi router (TL-WR740N). Both these devices support wireless bridging according to their admin settings. I'll go pic-by-pic to explain what steps I performed.Pic1: PTCL Modem wireless bridging options. It shows two options for AP Mode: Access Point and Wireless Bridge. And it shows three options for Bridge Restrict.

Pic2: TP-Link router home page Pic2a: I first change the TP-Link's IP Address, because the PTCL Modem's wireless is also using the same IP address ( so the current address will conflict with it. I change the router's IP address to It goes for a restart.Pic3: Next I turn off the DHCP Server, as suggested by various blogs and forums. Router goes for another reboot after saving this setting.Pic4: Now I go to Wireless Settings page and set Enable WDS on. It shows me bridging options.Pic5.

I click the Survey button and it shows me a list of wireless devices in its range along with their BSSID and Channel number. I select my PTCL Modem access point which is on Channel 6. My PTCL Modem's wireless is set to WPA2-PSK security with the password "********". I also set the Channel on my TP-Link router from Auto to 6, to come in line with PTCL Modem's wireless. Clicking Save makes router goes for another reboot.

Wireless Ethernet Bridge Without Computer?

Jan 24, 2012

I have a piece of hardware (audio device) with Ethernet network access only. I'd like to give it to my users and have them connect via Wifi. But configuring a Wifi bridge for each use is too onerous. I'm looking for a wireless bridge device with a display and keypad that allows the user to scan, select and associate with a wifi router, then bridge the wireless network to ethernet so I can attach my device. Does such an animal exist? Price is not a major factor.

Wireless Bridge E1000 With WRT120N?

Mar 9, 2012

I found the 120N at work and so far it seems to be garbage and a headache.Just moved into an apartment and was debating running 30-40ft of CAT6 from bedroom to living room and see if I could set up a wireless bridge with the 2 routers.I have an WRT54G I left behind as well, which I'm thinking to get back since it had Tomato and lot more capabilities.Its a railroad style apartment so walls aren't an issue really.Thinking to maybe even move the main E1000 to mid way point for best coverage.

Using Netgear DG834G As Wireless Bridge?

Aug 23, 2012

I've got an old netgear dg834g router and I want to set it up so that it connects wirelessly to the main router in the house (netgear dgn3300) in order to have wired connections from the old router to my pc and xbox 360 upstairs.

I think I need to change the setting on the old router so that it acts as a 'repeater with wireless client association' but on the most recent firmware this doesn't seem to be an option.

I've been trying to use this guide [URL] but it doesn't seem to work. Whenever I change the IP address of the old router it just breaks down and won't let me access the settings anymore.

Cisco Wireless :: Request For New Firmware For WET200 / Wireless Ethernet Bridge?

Jan 7, 2010

i am placing a formal request to Cisco and to the firmware development team to create a new-and-improved firmware release for the WET200 wireless Ethernet bridge, a product that is still being produced, shipped, and sold.  I purchased the product about one-and-a-half years ago and have enjoyed its performance.  There have been, however, some flaws with the device, namely the following:While configured to use WPA2-based security, DHCP-related traffic is not passed from a router/gateway's DHCP Server to connected devices on the WET200.  Current firmware release notes indicate this was a known issue and was, supposedly, fixed; however, due to the level of problems customers are reporting, it appears this may have only been resolved, if at all, with security configurations of WPA, WEP, or OPEN.  It has not been fixed for customers using WPA2-based security.When I originally purchased the WET200 and configured it to use WPA2-based security, while it, initially, did have a few problems connecting to my router/gateway, it, eventually, did connect and stayed connected for, approximately, one year.  However, in September of 2009, it suddenly lost connectivity with my router/gateway and has not been able to establish a connection since, even after reinstalling the latest firmware revision and after several soft and hard resets of the device.  I tested the WET200 with another router/gateway, only to experience the same issue.  Other devices are connecting to my router/gateway, but, not the WET200. The last firmware update for the WET200 was dated back in July of 2008.  Currently, it is January 2010 and since these issues have been known for quite some time, it is unacceptable that the firmware for this device has not been updated in such a long time, especially when there are known issues with the WET200's firmware.  Such lack of support is forcing me and my clients to stop using these Cisco-based products and purchase competing hardware, something I would prefer not to do; however, without better support, I and my clients do not have a choice.  Expecting me and my clients to use an inferior form of security on the WET200, such as WEP and/or WPA, until a firmware update is issued is unacceptable, especially when that update has not been released in over one-and-a-half years.  Such lack of support is especially unforgettable when my clients and I are looking to purchase new networking equipment.  In the past, I would not have hesitated to purchase a Cisco-based product; now, with this experience in mind, I am finding it very difficult to recommend to a client that he or she should invest their organization's finances into Cisco-branded equipment.  Proper, professional, timely, support of your hardware is expected of your customers, especially if you wish them to remain loyal customers.  I have noticed that other similar devices, albeit, higher-end devices, have had their firmware updated, more recently, compared to the WET200.  I assumed this meant that the firmware development team was updating all firmware on such devices.  So far, I have been disappointed in the lack of firmware updates for the WET200.  While I understand the possible desire to update the higher-end products, first, as a professional whose job is to research, recommend, purchase, install,configure, secure, and maintain both the enterprise-level and small business-level devices, I highly encourage Cisco not to overlook their small business products when the firmware development team is updating firmware for any Cisco products.  Deficiency in the support of one strata of Cisco-based products is reflective upon the support of any Cisco-based product and is not easily forgiven by Cisco customers, such as myself, when new and additional hardware needs to be purchased.

Cisco :: No Dhcp Through Wireless Controller WLC2100 And Wireless Bridge WET546

Jan 19, 2011

Due to lack of wires we decided to extend our network by using WET546 bridge by linksys. Ideally we looking to create topology like this:
WET546 successfully authenticates and looks pretty healthy on controller (see below) , however neither of computers plugged to WET546 was unable to obtain ip address from dhcp server , nor working with static ip. I was under impression what it might be related to some default policies on WLC2100. Logs (warning) on WLC2100 looks clean.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Configuring E1200 As Wireless Bridge

Jun 16, 2012

I'm considering purchasing the "Cisco Linksys - E1200 Wireless-N Router with 4-Port Ethernet Switch". Before I do, however, I want to know how to configure it as a wireless bridge to my existing wireless network.I have a hardware device with only an ethernet connection (no wireless option avaialble). I want to connect the device to a wireless router / access point, in this case it would be the e1200, and then connect to my existing wireless network. The e1200 would be acting like a client of the existing network.I found this article but Step 8 is causing concern. I do not want a wired connection. The two routers must connect wirelessly.

How To Create Bridge To RNX-N100 USB Wireless Dongle

Feb 21, 2011

I use the DWA-552 Linksys wireless card on my PC. I would like to create either a bridge (which seems complicated) to my RNX-N100 USB Wireless dongle. The reason being, I am going to use the RNX to get access to the internet for my Blu-Ray player (BD-C5500T). I have looked everywhere and cannot find any info on the setup. The other way is to connect the PC to my T.V. as my integrated card has an HDMI port and bridge the wireless connection with the integrated wired connection (if that is possible) so i can gain internet access to my Blu-Ray player. I have tried to configure with my player and no-go. It works fine when i configure the RNX on my PC though.

Forming Bridge Between Wireless And LAN For Internet Access?

Mar 10, 2013

Just a little bit of info on the setup I am TRYING to run:

1) Laptop connected to my router via wireless
2) Xbox 360 connected via ethernet port to Laptop
3) Forming bridge between wireless and LAN to give 2 access to internet whilst 1 being able to maintain access.

Foreword: I've tried using ICS before hand because it was a simple alternative, had problems with it and got IP address errors on 2. When it did work, worked exactly how I wanted/need it to. (Was very un-reliable )

Goal: Have constant wireless access to 1 and be able to turn off/ on 2 and have access to internet without any problems.

Problem: So I am able to bridge the two connections just fine and I maintain internet on both, but when I turn off 2 the wireless drops and will stay at " Identifying" for hours and will either A) completely drop and not connect or B) stalls at identifying.

The way I have been able to get wireless back on 1 is to delete the bridge I formed and un-bridge my wireless. At that point my wireless comes back instantly and there are no problems. The thing is I don't want to have to repeat the process every time I want to use 2. With ICS it was " Plug and Play" when it worked and that's my goal. To plug in the ethernet cord via LAN and to be able to use 2.

Good Wireless Bridge To Use With Motorola 6580?

Aug 17, 2011

I'm running a Motorola Surfboard Extreme 6580 as my modem and main access point, but I have equipment downstairs in my home theater that I need LAN connections for. I want to set up another router/device as a wireless-n bridge to plug these into, and I don't want to spend more than necessary, but I want the best performance from my 6580. As the 6580 is only singal band, and my wife's computer only runs on 2.4ghz, I think I don't really need a dual band device, but a single band n device. I bought a netgear WNR2000v3 router, but when I try to bridge it (enable wireless repeating function) it tells me that I can not enable this function with AES, TKIP, or AES + TKIP enabled. The 6580 tells me I should use AES to get the best speed, and the WNR2000 won't let me use any security when bridging (the router's menu page hints tell me to enable WEP, but I don't even see an option for that, and it's pretty worthless as security I've been told). I think I need to return this WNR2000v3 and get something else.
