After getting informed that I cannot use the AP I bought yesterday as a bridge, I decided to get another linksys E2000, as the guy in the shop informed me that I can run it in bridge mode for sure.
Now, as I am doing this for the first time, and my english is not the best, I was not able to find some instructions, or even better a step-by-step manual that can assist me. I searched the forum, but I did not find anything about the E2000 in bridge mode. AS I said my english is not the best, so can anybody help me? If someone can find some step-by-step instructions that would be great. It is no problem if it is in english, if there are some pictures. I hope I can finally use the WLAN today...
Solved! Go to Solution.

I am going to shoot s1 right now. I tell those guys exactly what I want, and they now suggested 2 times the wrong thing.
Can you tell me please what a good bridge is?
Is the WET610N good?

This is how to do it:
Have both routers near each other, you have have to plug them into each other at a later point and do some voodoo. I suggest having the main router connected to the internet and nothing else, the e2000 connected only to a computer in order to configure it.
1,) open the web form for the router which will be the main NON-Bridge router, get its IP address.
2.) With only the e2000 connected to the computer, open its web configuration page. Set the Wireless Security to WPA2Personal. You have to do this first if you want the router secured. Once you do the next steps you will not be able to see the routher via the Web Page,
3.) Go to the SETUP page, At DHCP Server Settings, DISABLE DHCP Server.
4.) At NETWORK SETUP, Change the IP address so it is different that the address of the main router, I used 192.168.1.2 for the e2000.
Save the changes.
5.) Once this is done disconnect the e2000 from the computer, and plug the ethernet cord into any port on the main router. Disconnect the power cord to the e2000, wait ten seconds, perform you prefered VOODOO ritual here, as I tryed so many things I might have missed something at this point.
Plug the power cord back into the router, allow it to cycle untl the power light stays solid.
You can use the router as a bridge, I hope.
