The DD-WRT client bridge mode is actually a semi-PROXY bridge. It is not transparent - it is actively changing the MAC. Transparent bridging means totally transparent - nothing changed. The DD-WRT bridge mode is not transparent - it is acting as a semi-proxy bridge. -EDIT -- I think it actually acts more like a semi-MAC-Address-Translation (MAT).

In the case in which we are interested, a wireless device running DD-WRT such as a WRT54G is configured as a Wireless Bridge between a remote wireless router (of any make/brand) and the Ethernet ports on the WRT54G. Overview DD-WRT is really a powerful router firmware and one of many cool things you can do with it is – to setup a WiFi repeater bridge. DD-WRT Wiki (installation info and more) DD-WRT WDS Information (an alternative bridge solution if your primary router is already running DD-WRT) Tomato , another third-party firmware I want to connect DD-WRT router to my server in bridging mode, so wireless devices can get IP from server. Basically I want DD-WRT router to act like bridge. I read Wiki but still not clear. All I found is how to connect 2 routers to extend range, which isn't what I want. So the question is how to configure DD-WRT in proper bridging mode?

Originally (prior to my above post), I used DD-wrt v3.0 R31980M Kongac 5-11-17 and updated to R42174 figuring I would re-create the setup with some tweaks such as the bridging and this is where I encountered issues with bridging.

Here is my router flashed with DD-WRT firmware and turned on with repeater bridge function linking all my device to the main modem. Now, I will go on to show the method on how to configure the router as a repeater bridge using DD-WRT firmware on my Linksys E1000 router. We will configure an additional router also running DD-WRT for client bridge mode. We will call this the client router. The master router In the remaining steps, we will assume your master router has the Local IP address 192.168.1.1 and wireless is enabled. No additional changes need to be performed on the master router to support client bridge

Apr 06, 2015 · How to Setup VLAN in DD-WRT. Now on to the fun! In this DD-WRT tutorial, we will set up VLANs for each Ethernet port. This will create a network on each port that is isolated from all the other ports. An Asus RT-AC66U has been used for this tutorial but this same interface is pretty constant throughout any popular DD-WRT enhanced router.
