Hey guys, I have 2 routers, a TP-Link TL-WR741ND, and a D-Link DIR-615. I want to be able to bridge them together on the same network. Now I know the TP-Link one has bridge capability but I'm not too sure about the other.

Can anyone help me in which order I should set them up or even how I go about setting this up?

Cheers! :)

Cheers

Before you go any further, you need to ascertain whether or not the D-Link can do wireless bridging. If it can't, the rest is moot.

You should only need one to act as the bridge.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Follow wanderer on this one.

I've never configured two SOHO routers to bridge a wireless network so I assumed (yes, I know, I know damnit!) that both had to be in bridge mode to work.

Now to get my foot out of my mouth..........

So in theory, even if the D-Link wasn't capable; if the TP-Link is bridge enabled, it's possible?

Thanks for the replies!
