      Re: HELP! Bridging 2 routers

      Well, I'm hoping someone will tell me I'm wrong here but I'm sure the last time I tried to do something like this I had to use a couple of WG602 access points to link two of these routers. Trouble is ..the cheaper Netgear routers don't support WDS which is where routers can act as bridges as relays and repeater using WiFi .

      A quick fix might be to get a couple of mains<>ethernet convertors. The older 14MB ones come up for about 30 a pair these days on eBay etc. . or of course a regular ethernet cable between the two but that's probably not practical. Or, if you camera is in WiFi range of the Interent router you could always using a media convertor..

      I bridged a WRT54G with my Sky router using DD-WRT firmware on the linksys, but this was using Client AP mode which means the linksys router can no longer accept wireless connections, just wired. My Sky router still accepts wireless connections so it isnt a major prob
