I've small corporate network with Cisco 800 as main DSL router/firewall/DHCP. I'd like to setup Linksys E3000 (firmware: 1.0.01) as bridge (no DHCP, only wireless repeater), but there is no "bridge mode" in E3000 interface
Thanks in advance

I have it connected on LAN1 to the existing network. I just want it to transfer packets to/from main router (Cisco 800). In other words I want to operate it as a bridge ("repeater" is a wrong word)
Here is the plan

That means If I connected to a wireless router (SSID= A) to E-3000 (SSID=B) using ethernet.If I disable with your plan. Can I use this as single access point (SSID=A) for main router?

Yes, that's it, the 2nd router serves as an access point getting its connection from the main router. It's also the same with cascading routers (LAN-LAN), http://homekb.cisco.com/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid

I tried as GV said and I have connected internet to wireless router port and also I connected ethernet port to computer. I did not able to connect internet.
What I did is I have changed IP address main wireless router free ip. and disabled DHCP also. after I am not go to E3000 webpage. I have and need to reset wireless router.

If you will cascade two routers through LAN-to-LAN, then make sure that you have assigned a static ip address on the second router. The reason for that is if you decide to access the second router’s ui then you will still be able to do so.

As what gv said on his previous post, the router can’t operate as a wireless bridge or a repeater. If you want to extend your network using the E3000, it must be cascaded to the main router either via LAN-LAN or LAN-WAN cascade. As for not able to access the second router not being accessed, thebluemamba_24 is correct; you will never be able to access it unless you’ve setup a static IP address on it before you disabled the DHCP server.
Just to verify, on which port on the second router the main router is connected to (Ethernet or internet)?
