Why Bridge group on cisco routers

Can anybody tell me why do we use bridge group on routers. I have read from many different sites, their is no clarity on that.

Can we enable ip routing and access-list if we implement bridge group

Re: Why Bridge group on cisco routers

If you have protocols that cannot be routed you can use a bridge group.

If you want to extend a LAN over a point-to-point WAN link (without routing, which requires different IP Subnet) you can use a bridge group to "bridge" the traffic over the link to the remote location.

IP access-lists do not have effect on bridged traffic. In that case you need to use mac access-lists to prevent traffic from being forwarded. It is possible to both bridge and route traffic, to do this I recommend you to read the documention on transparent bridging, Integrated Routing and Bridging (IRB) and Concurrent Routing and Briding (CRB).
