The Basic Components of a WDS Point-to-Point Link
  • A Bridge is a device that allows wired LANs to interconnect with other wired LANs. Wireless Bridges allow same building or multi-building connectivity without the use of hardwire. Bridges work at OSI model Layer 2 and forward data depending on destination hardware addresses (MAC). Only data with valid destination addresses are sent across a bridge.
