A bridge is a stupid device and when operating correctly should not be detected in IP traffic.
From your description it leads me to think you placed the IP you want to use for the DVR on the bridge. Unlike a router the bridge will not pass traffic it receives on a IP out to another device, it assumes all traffic coming to that IP belongs to him. You want the bridge to have its own address and it will only be used to make changes to the bridge configuration.
All a bridge will do is convert the media from wired to wireless it does not even look at the IP or the ports. You really should not have to change the PC at all.
I've been looking for some time now in regards to this question and I can't come up with any results. I have a Netgear Router connected to a cable modem acting as DHCP router for all computers connected and IP 192.168.1.1.
I have two computers which take addresses 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.3. The DHCP server is set to allow 192.168.1.2 - 192.168.1.90. Regular port forwarding using the web console works fine to all wired servers - lets say 192.168.1.100.
Now heres the tricky part. I have a DVR for a security system which would normally be wired and configured to forward both ports 2000 & 3000 to a static ip lets say 192.168.1.101. so to call from a browser http://192.168.1.101:2000.
Unfortunately I cannot place the DVR in a wired location so I recently purchased a Linksys WET610N Bridge to place it onto the wireless network. I set on the router to take the position as the static ip : 192.168.1.101 and on the primary router I set the port forwarding to access the ip. But the ports still will not be contacted. I tried to set the bridge to DHCP and still no success. The settings on the DVR are set to the static ip address (as if it was wired directly to the router). I have also tried using the DHCP setting on the DVR (to take DHCP from the bridge which is designated to the static ip 192.168.1.101).
Keep in mind when trying to solve this problem is that the DVR system has a designation for DHCP or Static IP (with ip/gateway/subnet choices as well as port number config) as well as the wireless bridge which is connected to the router (ip / subnet / gateway).
What settings should I be using?
