Cisco Wireless :: 1242s Bridge Mode Wired Switch?

Aug 7, 2012

Is there a way to set up these ap's to bridge. Ie two buildings 100 yards apart   Both buildings have wired clients into a Cisco poe switch. Want to plug the ap's into each switch and have them bridge the data and even better if they could trunk vlans. No wireless clients at all. Strictly a point to point bridge. Also will they need to be lwaps or standalone APs. If they are lwaps can I flash to standalone ?

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?

Smart TV Wired Connection Through Windows 7 Bridge?

Apr 6, 2012

I have a win7 system next to a smart TV. The win7 is connected to my network through wireless. A second port on the win7 is free.

I'd like to connect the smart TV using network cable to the free port, and set up a bridge so that it connects to the home network.

I tried using ICS. It workes only somewhat - I was able to get an IP address on the 192.168.137.x subnet, but the TV failed to connect to the gateway.

I am trying to use bridging to do the same. I configured the free port and the TV manually, to a 10.10.1.x network, and then I bridged the wireless and wired ports on the pc, (I modified the metric of the wireless to be lower than the wired port). This does not work either.

Linksys Cable / DSL :: WCG200 Bridge Mode From Wireless-G Cable Gateway To Wired?

Mar 14, 2013

Our family has about three computers that use a wireless network that we all share. We have an old Gateway, a WCG200, that is bridged to an E2000, which was set-up ever since we required better security when someone used our connection to illegally obtain movies. We got a letter which warned us of any future violations that could cause legal action, so we looked into our wireless connection to better secure it from any other individuals outside of our household. The WCG200 is connected to the outlet in the wall via cable, and then connects from the Ethernet to the E2000. The E2000 has a stronger security setup than the WCG200, which is the advice we received from our ISP and would allow us to keep the Gateway. It provides a strong signal, but from time to time, we suffer latency or slow loading through all of our online devices, even though our connection speed displays a solid 72.0 Mbps. I've tried the Event Viewer to see any problems, and I have noticed some small things:

- WLAN AutoConfig service has successfully stopped.Wirel?

- WLAN Extensibility Module has stopped. Module Path: C:WindowsSystem32cmihvsrv64.dll

- The server {E10F6C3A-F1AE-4ADC-AA9D-2FE65525666E} did not register with DCOM within the required timeout.

- Broadcom NetLink (TM) Gigabit Ethernet: The network link is down.  Check to make sure the network cable is properly connected. [This last one is strange, since I use the Wireless Network Connection with a DW1501 Wireless-N WLAN Half-Mini Card, while the Broadcom adapter is under the Local Area Connection and displayed as not connected.]

Other than that, I'm not quite sure what the recurring problem comes from. Our WCG200 has a firewall enabled and our E2000 has an SPI firewall enabled. The security mode of the E2000 is a WPA2 setup. We have disabled the wireless network of our WCG200 in order to make use of the E2000.

Cisco Switching/Routing :: Setup WET200 As Wired Bridge?

Oct 8, 2012

I have two separate offices in the same building that I'm trying to  connect.  They are physically far apart so I cannot connect them  wirelessly.  I have had an ethernet cable run from the main office to  the second office and physically connected it to a WET200.  I can see the  WET200 on my router in the main office.  In the second office, I want  clients to be able to come in and connect wirelessly to the WET200 which  will then connect them to my router and internet connection.  The  WET200 is the correct device for this?

D-Link DIR-655 :: Connected A Wired Weather Internet Bridge To Another Ethernet Port

Feb 14, 2013

I have the DIR-655, Rev. B running 2.07NA firmware, and have a strange problem with my wired clients.  I have my primary computer/desktop PC connected via wired connection.  I also have several wireless clients (laptop, iPad, iPhones, etc.).  All have been performing normally.  However, in December I connected a wired weather internet bridge to another ethernet port on the DIR-655.

It functions as it is supposed to, and all other connected devices do as well. But here's the problem - whenever I use the desktop PC (the only other wired connection) to do anything on the internet (mostly just web browsing ... I don't stream media from the internet on it, I don't do torrents....nothing out of the ordinary, and nothing really of high bandwidth), the wired weather bridge cannot communicate with its associated website.  This continues as long as I'm using the desktop PC.  When I stop using the desktop, the weather bridge resumes normally.

I have researched the weather bridge, and it is simply doing POST transactions (or so I'm told) to the website listening to it.  It doesn't wait for acknowledgements or anything...just keeps POSTing updates. I tried reserving an IP for the weather bridge and the desktop, enabling QoS, and prioritizing the weather bridge (100 vs. desktop at 125), but it didn't work.  I've tried moving the weather bridge into the DMZ. I'm totally baffled how just using the desktop to browse the internet could completely block the traffic from the weather bridge.

On the weather bridge support site, they suggested that I insure I'm not connected in gigabit speeds from my computer to the router, because in the past that has been known to cause issues on clients not running that speed, but I don't think my desktop is connected in that fashion.  According to the settings, it can do 10 or 100, full or half.  I have it set to AUTO.

Home Network :: Wireless Bridge Not Always Passing DHCP?

Mar 4, 2012

A little background on me: I do performance testing for a large corporation, so networking is like an old hat for me - but this has me spinning because it makes no logical sense to me.Here's the layout of my home network:CableModem(passthrough) -> WRT120N -> ENH200 (Access point) -> ENH200 (Client Bridge) -> Netgear N600Both the WRT120N and the Netgear N600 are providing wireless access to clients at both locations. N600 is set not to route or DHCP, and the WAN port isn't used.Initially the WRT120N wasn't in play because the cable modem was serving DHCP, but it wouldn't successfully send DHCP to most clients on the other side of the client bridge. So I installed the WRT120N (old, I know) and it was able to serve up DHCP to any and all systems... for a while. Now DHCP doesn't appear to be working fully again on the Netgear side of the bridge. One device registers in the WRT120N, the client list shows the mac as getting assigned an ID, but the device never actually pulls the address. Static works fine. Those that already have DHCP addresses work like a charm, so I know the link is stable. pingtest.net reports near perfection.

Access Internet Using Wireless Network And Printer Using Separate Wired Network At Time?

Apr 4, 2012

I have 4 computers (3 laptops, 1 desktop) in a shared office. We get internet access using their wireless network. All works fine. However, I need to share a printer amongst all of the computers. The printer is LAN enabled and I would normally just put all the PCs on a hub, together with the printer and share it that way. BUT my question is can we access the internet using the wireless network and the printer using a separate wired network at the same time?

Creating A Secure Wired Network Alongside A Wireless Network?

Oct 10, 2011

I have been involved in the Networking of a museum with a set of "Show" computers which display video, and for this reason cannot have anti virus installed becuase of the performace hit, and also the risk of pop-ups on the videos. They do however need to be connected to the internet as some are interactive and allow people to send simple emails, and they all need to allow remote support when things go wrong.It seems the networking was not thought out very well initially, and there is a single wireless router which serves the staff and public on a secured wireless network, but also serves the "Show" machines via a wired connection from one of its ports, which then connects to a master switch which serves the show machines.Now the wired and wireless is on the same network, and everything shares the same IP subnet (192.168.1.xxx), and this is not a good situation in terms of the securuty of the show machines on the wired network. So I need to work out a way to totally separate the wireless network (which will be very prone to people opening viruses in their emails etc), from the wired network (which will be the show machines which wont be touched by anyone).

I want to achieve this in the simplest and easiest way, and have been reading about the possibility of setting up a second wired router behind the current wireless one, with a different subnet IP address, to which the "Show" machines could be connected. The WAN port on this second router would connect to a LAN port on the wireless router, and thus the show machines could get their internet, but separated from the dangerous wireless network.Does this sound like a sensible start? Will the fact that the wired router (and show machines) are on a completely different subnet to the wireless router (and wireless devices), mean that the wired network will be protected? Or do I need to do more? And is this likely to work?

Cisco Wireless :: 819 Work Group Bridge Through LWAPP Network

Jan 21, 2013

We are connecting a cisco router (819)  to wireless lan network (lwapp) through its wireless interface.
clients ---> 819 ---->AP (WGB) ------ lwapp ----- AP ---> LAN ---> servers.

since the clients are on the same subnet as the the VLAN on the lwapp, everything works great.When we add a new L3 VLAN on the 819 router, and we try to ping the clients from the servers, the packets can reach the clients but never received by the servers back. it seems like the bridge is dropping the packets when they go back from the client to the servers.when we use a GRE tunnel from the 819 to the LAN, everything works great.

Home Network :: Multiple Access Points Connected By Wireless Bridge?

Sep 27, 2011

I have a router that is capable of wireless N at 5.0GHz but can't run simultaneous with it's 2.4GHz band a/b/g (Cisco Linksys E2000), so I have a second router acting as gateway for my b/g devices (and a few wired only that are nearer to it). They are connected LAN port to LAN port with 50ft of cat6 and the DHCP server running on only one router. I know this is pretty standard for multiple access points, and it works very well. But I'm moving, and in the new house, the internet access will be on one floor with the wireless N router, and the other router will need to be in the basement on the opposite end of the house, and running networking cable through the floor and walls is just too much trouble. My question is, can I replace the previous wired method with a wireless N bridge attached to the LAN port of the router in the basement and have it function in the same way as it did when it was wired, with only the DHCP server running on the wireless N router, and all devices attached to either router able to see each other? I would assume so, but I would like to know from anyone who has experience with it before I go buying the bridge.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Using WET610N And WRT320N As Bridge Within Home Network?

Mar 5, 2010

I have a small home network, in which the DSL modem is some way away from the room in which I do my work. Currently, I use a pair of WAP54G access points to bridge between the two locations, and everything works OK, if slowly.Today, I bought a WRT320N router and a WET610N bridge to replace the access points, but I having a real problem configuring them to work. I think the basic problem is with the IP addresses that they use. The current configuration is:
DSL Modem -> Access Point -- several yards -- Access Point -> PC
and I want to go to:
DSL Modem -> WRT320N -- several yards -- WET610N -> PC
I guess my basic question is this a reasonable idea or should I be using something different for the WRT320N end? I don't want to change the basic IP address subnet (192.168.1.*) and I want to keep the DSL modem as the default gateway ( When I installed the WRT320, it assigned itself an IP address of and the WET610N an IP address of, and I think the DSL modem also assigned the WRT320 an IP address of, so I am a little confused as to which IP addresses I should be setting where.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Guest Network Doesn't Work In Bridge Mode On E4200

We have three brand new E4200 routers, all using the most current firmware (1.0.02).   They are all in bridged mode, however when I attempt to enable the guest network on each of them, the config shows it as active, but it never shows up as visiible SSID.   In previous posts, I've seen people saying that I need to do a complete hard reset of the router and re-enter all the configs again to get the guest network active.   Is this true?  I'd hate to think that I have to hard reset and reconfigure all three of these APs, just to get the guest network enabled.

I've a WLC 2106 and it is running IOS version 7.0.240. I am trying to setup a wireless mesh and used the Ethernet bridge port on the MAP to extend the network. The wireless mesh works fine but I can not get the switch to work that is connected to the ethernet port on the MAP.I'm using two different Access points. I'm using a Air Cap 3502i as the RAP and a Air Lap1142N as the MAP.The switch port that is connected to the RAP and MAP is configured as the following:

switchport mode trunk
switchport trunk native vlan 2
switchport trunk allowed vlan 10,20,30,40

The wireless mesh between the RAP and MAP works fine. I can connect a device to the MAP wirelessly and access the network with no problem but I can not get anything to work that connects to the switch that is connected to the MAP ethernet port.

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?
