Wireless Bridge function is somewhat like a repeater in the
Ethernet world. It can make 2 remote Ethernet LANs just like to be
one, which both LANs must got an individual AP connected with.
(in another word, 2 remote Ethernet LANs can connected with
each other by APs working under the mode.) There are 2 type of
bridge mode, point-to-point and point-to-multipoint. You can see
Point-to-Point Wireless Bridge: This mode allows one wireless
bridge communicate with a specific remote one only.
