I recently installed TomatoUSB advanced firmware on my Asus RT-AC66U wifi router. This router act as my wireless Ethernet bridge. TomatoUSB advanced has additional features like
- Multiple WAN support (3G/4G/Static IP/Cable/ADSL2)
- Virtual Wireless
- FTP/Media server via USB
- BiTorrent Client via USB
- UPS support
- OpenVPN client and server
- Tinc VPN server and much more.
I also connected my 2 bay NAS to this server. Sometimes I need to wake up my NAS using WOL.
You can set up a wireless connection between two routers. One can link a wireless network to a wired network allowing you to bridge two networks with different infrastructure. You can find wireless access points products that offer either a “bridge” mode or a “repeater” mode. In this post, I’m going to explain three popular open source choices that can use for setting up a wireless bridge.
