Hi,

I see many old questions about wireless bridges and will ask some older questions.

I am looking for a up to date wireless bridge with ports than can connect wirelessly to a dsl modem for home..

Anyone have any suggestions.?

It will need to connect wireless to wireless network and allow pcie port connect from server..

The distance is short and only
Looking for low end device .. But all recommendation considered.

All the stuff I read never comes out and say this will connect wireless to wireless network which is why I am spending points .. Thanks

Hi,

I've setup several wireless to wireless bridges using the firmware from www.dd-wrt.com.  Basically any router that they have support for, usually the generic Linksys variety, work well.  Probably would want to try to get identical routers if possible.  Usually these can be found pretty cheaply, about $50 bucks or so each.

Then, load DD-WRT firmware on the routers, and then configure for wireless bridging.  

Usually works pretty well, we have currently a wireless router (not running DD-WRT) supplying internet, then another wireless router connected to it wirelessly, then another, and another, and another, and one more, with no issues.  All the other routers are running the free DD-WRT.

Netgear has some inexpensive devices that will do wireless bridging.
Here's a link to their list:

And here is a link to their overview of the bridging feature.
