Wireless client bridge is not working on LinkSys WRT350N v2.0 (Orion). Also tested in 11g-only mode.
Same Backfire revision works on a WRT54G v2.2.
Looks like a target or platform-related issue (ath9k).
Both routers were setup via luci interface.

Builds tested on WRT350Nv2 and not working:

  • Backfire 10.03.1 post-rc3 r22998 (Linux

Builds tested on WRT54G v2.2 and working:

  • Backfire 10.03.1 post-rc3 r22998 (Linux

Setup procedure on both routers:

  1. Go to luci menu "Network" => "Wifi"
  2. Check "Enable"
  3. Enter correct "Network Name (ESSID)"
  4. Set "Mode" to "Join (Client)"
  5. Set "Encryption" to "WPA2-PSK"
  6. Enter correct "Key"

Client bridge is not supported on any non-Broadcom driver. On Broadcom it only works because of some driver-internal Layer 2 NAT hacks.
I'm working on an alternative solution that has similar transparency as client bridge, but works on Layer 3. The code is at git:// but it is not integrated yet.
