Re: bridge

I have never configured a router this way, but I do know what it means. It means just what it sounds like. Traffic is being bridged rather than routed. Why? Maybe they are forced to use a non-routeable protocol like NetBEUI. Then the (b)router bridges that traffic so that it can get to all subnets.
