    So I have a D-Link WBR-1310 wireless router that isnt being used right now. I want to set it up in bridge mode so that my old PowerMac G3 can connect to my wireless network and get on the internet since it doesnt have a airport card. I've tried Google-ing it but had no luck finding out how to do it or if there is even an option for it. Does anyone know how to set it up in bridge mode?

    You can't. I have the same model and actually called D-Link to ask. They only have one router that can do this. I can't remember the model number offhand, but it's obviously expensive.

    WBR-1310 in concert with wired DSL router

    Well, I found this thread while trying to figure out how to set up my WBR-1310 in bridge mode, as it is paired with my wired DSL modem
    (using AT&T). Which, apparently, you can't do. BUT, as I was having a ton of trouble syncing it with my non-wireless DSL router, I did resolve the issue by setting up the D-Link WBR-1310 as DHCP connection (even though the DSL modem is set-up via PPOE) AND UNchecking the "Enable DHCP Server" setting on the WBR-1310.

    It's worked fine for wireless connection throughout the house since then.

    Yeah, you can't use it in bridge mode.

    Honestly, I haven't been able to use it in any mode. IMHO, both the 1310 and 2310 are crap. I really wish you could flash them with a custom OS.
