Solved Connect PC through Wireless Router in Bridge Mode to Android

Specs: Windows Vista
I installed DD-WRT on my router and placed it in bridge mode, configuring it with what I thought was my Androids IP address for the gateway. I tried with the Android IP address identified through,, and with the one identified through ipconfig command, Neither address was successful. Also, I am unable to access my router using the IP address that I manually assigned to it. Can anyone provide some assistance on the process of bridging from an Android to a wired PC through a router, Linksys WRT54G v3, if at all possible? Any thoughts on accessing the router without restoring to factory default?

✔ Best Answer
router should not be in bridge mode. No nat can take place.

You do not assign the ipaddress of your android as the gateway of the router.
1. you can't set a gateway on the router in bridge mode.
2. you can't use the ip address of the android on the router or you would cause a ip conflict.

You can't access your router when in bridge mode. To access again you have to set it to factory defaults which will take it out of bridge mode.

You don't "bridge" to the wifi router. You connect to it like any other wireless device. I don't have an android anymore [nexus now] but getting connected to your wireless router should just be a matter of going into setting and configuring the wireless connection.
