4.1.3 Bridge

Bridge or WDS (Wireless Distribution System) allows your ASUS wireless router to connect to another wireless access point exclusively, preventing other wireless devices or stations to access your ASUS wireless router. It can also be considered as a wireless repeater where your ASUS wireless router communicates with another access point and other wireless devices.

To set up the wireless bridge:

1. From the navigation panel, go to Advanced Settings >

Wireless > Bridge tab.

2. Select the frequency band for the wireless bridge.

3. In the AP Mode field, select any of these options:

• AP Only: Disables the Wireless Bridge function.

• WDS Only: Enables the Wireless Bridge feature but prevents other wireless devices/stations from connecting to the router.



• HYBRID: Enables the Wireless Bridge feature and allows other wireless devices/stations to connect to the router.

NOTE: In Hybrid mode, wireless devices connected to the ASUS wireless router will only receive half the connection speed of the Access Point.

4. In the Connect to APs in list field, click Yes if you want to connect to an Access Point listed in the Remote AP List.

5. In the Control Channel field, select the operating channel for the wireless bridge. Select Auto to allow the router to automatically select the channel with the least amount of interference.

NOTE: Channel availability varies per country or region.

6. On the Remote AP List, key in a MAC address and click the

Add button

to enter the MAC address of other available

Access Points.

NOTE: Any Access Point added to the list should be on the same Control

Channel as the ASUS wireless router.
