Hello,

i have 2 Fonera 2100 and I want to use them as wifi to ethernet bridge.
My main router wifi doesnt support WDS (AVM MESH with Fritzbox/FritzRepeater)

According to the router-database at dd-wrt, Fonera 2100 would bei supported by dd-wrt in a v3beta-version from year 2020.

Does dd-wrt offers a wifi to ethernet bridging?

Thanks.

I am not exactly sure what you are asking but the different wireless bridging modes are described here: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Linking_Routers

Best to look at the table here: https://wiki.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Repeating_Mode_Comparisons#Router_Mode_Comparison_Table

Note, Client Bridge does work but please be aware that it is a software hack and should not be used for mission critical devices. Client-Mode is preferred in that case.

If you flash any version from that page, you will likely brick your router if memory serves. Please do yourself a favor and do a little more reading and research and do NOT rely on or use the router database for any recommendations on what files to flash (with very, VERY few exceptions!).
