From DD-WRT Wiki

The 63 character key maximum in the instructions is not a bug. 63 printable characters = 256 bit encryption, which should be enough for WPA2.



I don't use MAC filtering on my network. Is that a required step?


The title is "Wireless Bridge", but the content is "Client-bridge". Why ? The term "Wireless-bridge" is usually used for connection of two APs (both running in AP mode), sometimes referred to as "WDS".



Operating Mode must be set to Router

I was playing around with this today. It seems to only work if the Client-Bridge device is set to some type of routing and NOT set to Gateway under the Advanced Routing tab.

Set AP Isolation to disabled for the Host Router

Hi! Thanks for a great walk-thru! It worked excellent, except for one thing. My clients connected wirelessly with the host router was not visible for the computers connected to the client router. (And since all my computers use wireless connections, this was a little showstopper....)

But when I disabled AP Isolation on the Host Router, everything works fine!

I now have a KiSS VR558 connecte to a DD-WRT modified Linksys WRT54G(Bridge client), which connects wirelessly to my WRT300N (Host w/Internet access). My main computer where all my movies and music is located, is wirelessly connected to the main WRT300N via a WMP300N. It is now accessible from the KiSS via the brigde and main router.

Thanks again!!

WPA not working on WHR-G54S bridge with Actiontec AP.

Great summary, except I can't get the client-bridge working using WPA-PSK. WEB works fine, though. My bridge is a Buffalo WHR-G54S running DD-WRT v32 SP2 and my AP is an Actiontec MI424-WR (supplied by Verizon FIOS). WPA otherwise works with the AP. I can connect using WPA-supplicant just fine.

The bridge seems to associate with the AP in WPA mode, but there are 0 packets in or out. The AP logs cryptic errors:

  • Apr 21 00:10:20 2007 System Log Message kern.debug Clink Reset Cause :0x1b0002 Reg:0x20000 Dbg:0xa9b
  • Apr 21 00:10:16 2007 System Log Message kern.debug Clink Device Forced reset
  • Apr 21 00:10:05 2007 System Log Message daemon.warn cLink: clink0: ioctl(DRV_GET_MY_NODE_INFO) failed, res=-1: Bad address.
  • Apr 21 00:10:00 2007 System Log Message kern.debug Clink Reset Cause :0x1b0002 Reg:0x20000 Dbg:0xa9b

Again, in WEP or unencrypted mode, the AP sees it fine. Do you think it's the bridge or the AP? Any ideas?

The coaxial ports being active but disconnected cause those errors. Disable both coaxial ports and the errors will cease. It took me a while to discover the cause and it was staring me in the face. Good luck to you. Azpeitio

Brainslayer forum

The BrainSlayer forum information about 802.11 supporting one mac address is wrong. 802.11 frames carry four mac addresses:

1. Sending station MAC

2. Receiving station MAC

3. TX station MAC

4. RX station MAC

If there is a limitation in client mode wireless it's a limitation in the CLIENT or ROUTER firmwares not properly handling the frame. Some of the management frame formats only have two MAC addresses, but for data frames, four addresses are used.

802.11 Standard (see section 7)

Example works with modded Fonera routers

Just in case someone is searching for this: In the past I had problems connecting my Fonera (DD-WRT v24 Beta (04/16/07) std) with my Netgear MR814v3. Since it was slow anyway I replaced it with a Microsoft MN-700 (DD-WRT v24 Beta (05/16/07) std). I followed the example and gave my PC a DHCP IP-adress. Everything works, even port forwarding. Thanks again.
