Connect two subnets via Access Point and Wireless Bridge

I have two subnets, 192.168.0.0/24 and 192.168.1.0/24.  They are in two separate buildings that are about 30 feet apart and are currently connected via a VPN tunnel between the two Linksys RV042 Routers.  I have setup an access point on the 192.168.0.0/24 side and a wireless bridge on the 192.168.1.0/24 side.  The bridge is able to establish a connection with the access point - no problem.  What I would like to accomplish is to have all traffic go through the wireless bridge between the two subnets.  How do I configure the RV042's to do such a thing?  Do I add static routes to both of them, just one, or not even bother with the RV042's.  Do I need a router on each end to prevent unnecessary traffic from going across the bridge?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

If your access point and your bridge is only layer 2, everything will work without any problem.
If you have defined a separate IP range behind the access point and also behind the bridge, you will have to add one static route on each linksys.

Hope this clarifies.

Regards,

Olivier
