Bridge mode

Bridge mode is a configuration option to enable Transparent Bridging.


In 802.11a/b/g/n-type wireless networks, configuring bridge mode requires that the wireless side be configured to be a Station for a particular Access Point, so a configuration interface, often via an integrated webserver, is generally provided.[citation needed]

In wired networks, such as ethernet, bridge mode generally requires no further configuration, as both sides are peers.

While in this mode, the router basically accepts only one device and controls all network traffic dedicated to this device.
