It would appear that your router can be configured as an a
bridge. Docs here for a Wireless Distribution System.
I have the Belkin F5D8236-4 wireless router. I reviewed the support page and it doesn't seem to have wireless bridging capability; Belkin calls bridging wirelessly cascading.

"" Sorry, not enough posts to use links... odd...

Is there another way to use the Belkin F5D8236-4 as a wireless bride? I want to use the Belkin to connect to my wireless network and then use the WAN ports on it to connect to my Asus Maximus VI Hero mobo.

I saw mention of DD-WRT. I don't know what FTPT is. Can someone please explain?
