N300 Wireless ADSL2+ Modem Router DGN2200M Mobile Edition
Point-to-Point Bridge Configuration
In point-to-point bridge mode, the wireless modem router communicates as an access point
with another bridge-mode wireless station. When used as a bridge, wireless client
associations are disabled—only wired clients can be connected. You need to enter the MAC
address of the other bridge-mode wireless station in the field provided. Use wireless security
to protect this communication. The following figure shows an example of point-to-point bridge

Both access points (APs) are in
AP 1 (DGN2200M modem router)
point-to-point bridge mode.

To set up a point-to-point bridge configuration:
1. Configure the DGN2200M Mobile Edition wireless modem router (AP 1) on LAN
Segment 1 in point-to-point bridge mode.
2. Configure the other access point (AP 2) on LAN Segment 2 in point-to-point bridge mode.
The DGN2200M Mobile Edition wireless modem router needs to have AP 2’s MAC
address in its Remote MAC Address field, and AP 2 needs to have the DGN2200M Mobile
Edition’s MAC address in its Remote MAC Address field.
3. Configure both APs, and verify that both APs are using the same SSID, channel,
authentication mode, if any, and security settings if security is in use.
4. Disable the DHCP server on AP 2. AP 1 will then be the DHCP server.
5. Verify connectivity across LAN Segment 1 and LAN Segment 2. A computer on either LAN
segment should be able to connect to the Internet or share files and printers of any other
computers or servers connected to LAN Segment 1 or LAN Segment 2.
