I've been reading around the web/these forums for a few days and see that a lot of bridging is normally set up by running a large ethernet cable from one router to another (of course, settings, options, turning off DHCP, etc.) I'm reading from various places that only certain routers have Wireless Bridge functionality. I know the EA series routers can bridge with a physical Ethernet cable, but is there a method of a wireless bridge without needing to run the cable to where I want the second router to be?
I tried setting to Bridge, but theres no reference about repeating or searching up the source router for an internet connection to bridge.
Even a simple "no, can't be done" is enough; just need it confirmed, thanks everyone!

You can't do that with Linksys's firmware, but you can do that with dd-wrt. Although, repeating does reduce the bandwidth dramatically from what I've heard and experienced.
Setting it up using dd-wrt's wireless bridge feature is much better.

I believe there is no way to set it up the way you want (like bridging it wirelessly). You can refer to this article http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=f61db959480e4c5ca31657cea9355fad_EA4500_Frequently...
