I don't think this device is truly a bridge, though.
from the manual, where they describe the lights on the device:
LED Indicator State Description
1. Power LED On - The WLAN Broadband Router is powered on.
Off - The WLAN Broadband Router is powered off.
2. WLAN LED Flashing - WLAN is transmitting or receiving data.
Off - WLAN is off
3. WPS LED Flashing - The WPS feature is enables and in use.
Off - The WPS feature is not in use.
4. LAN LED Flashing - Data is transmitting or receiving on the LAN
On - Port linked.
Off – No link
They call it a router and adapter. I think it takes the *place* of a
bridge, but is not a bridge as you describe. The box says "adapter", for
instance, but talks about using it as a bridge.
For example, to configure the device:
...enter IP address 192.168.1.100...
Step 4: Open your web browser and enter
192.168.1.252. This will bring up the configuration
utility. Click “Site Survey” to scan for your wireless
and then to use it, well, I couldn't find the exact language, but it
always gives out an IP address in the 192.168.0.x range.
192.168.1.100 to configure
192.168.0.x to use -- always
So, the router it connects to might be using any IP address, but this
gizmo always gives the same range.
It's not really a bridge, I think it just mimics that functionality.
