Setting up my Wireless Router to be a bridge [Solved]

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello, I while back a friend of mine borrowed my wireless router so he could bridge his internet connection to reach other parts of his house. He flashed opnwrt firmware onto the router to do this, and I can not for the life of me figure out how to put the router into bridge mode and then configure it correctly. When I log into the router in the top right corner it says,

OpenWrt Firmware
Kamikaze (r14417)
Load: 0.56 0.31 0.13
Hostname: OpenWrt

Any and all help is appreciated thank you!

set a management IP in your subnet

disable DHCP.

Connect the bridges switchport to the network.
( stay away from the lan port at this time )

If you want a seamless network, Make the wireless SSID the same as your current network. That goes for your network key as well.

Open WRT does have a straight bridge mode, but on the right hardware ( wrong hardware? ) jumping from switchports to the NIC can add some latencies.
