Building bridges

Got handed a pair of TP-LINK TL-WR642G wireless routers today & asked to link two buildings across a highway.

Excellent little router, easy to configure, great antennas, WEP & the usual encryption, port forwarding, yadda, yadda.

One small detail.

No bridging.

Oh, well, update the firmware... wait... done.

Still no bridging.

A bit of research reveals that it doesn’t actually do bridging. Bridge failure. Oh, well. Supplier is currently discussion solutions amongst themselves.
