The simplest bridging mode is where two bridge units connect to each other. You usually enter the MAC address of the unit on the opposite end of the wireless bridge in each bridge's configuration screen. Manufacturers are pretty consistent in describing this mode and the way it's set up. Figure 1 illustrates a Point-to-Point bridge.
Note that although only one client is shown on the far side of the bridge, you can have multiple clients, usually somewhere between 20 and 32.

Tip: Each AP/Bridge device has its own IP address. Although most products can be set to have the AP/Bridge obtain its IP address via DHCP, we recommend you set the IP information statically. This makes things much easier to troubleshoot when you're having network connectivity problems!
