so you meant bridge just act as an device that connecting LAN - LAN. but router more intelligent than bridge that can done lot of works. if then why people wanna came out with bridge ? people can just choose the router then every thing is done. must be some idea behind that. so what make people to choose bridge or router ?

A router can do everything a bridge can do, but, a router costs much more than a bridge.  If you were paying the bill, you wouldn't want to pay for a router where a bridge would do the job.
