I could not find a concrete answer around the net, and thought to post it here since the best answer is easier to emerge.

I want to use my D-Link DIR-615 as a wireless bridge to connect a remote device with no wireless to my wireless network. How can I achieve this?

The main router (from KisMac):

Vendor: Thomson Telecom Belgium

Channel: 8

Main Channel: 6

Type: Managed

Encryption: WPA

It depends on the hardware revision of your device, for instance DD-WRT supports all except revision D1. If you use DD-WRT then they provide some good instructions. I didn't see anything for OpenWRT but I assume they have similar documentation.

Did you work through those instructions? Did you look at the thread linked in it? I'm afraid that I've never used that feature of DD-WRT so all I can do is recommend you make use of the DD-WRT forum.

@Cry Havoc Currently I am trying DD-Wrt... will update with results – dimitris mistriotis Oct 16 '10 at 11:20
@Cry Havoc: You were right DD-wrt has very descriptive instructions and got in installed easily. Somewhere the setup does not work, but this is another story :-) – dimitris mistriotis Oct 16 '10 at 14:58
So I'm currently with DD-WRT (Firmware: DD-WRT v24-sp2 (10/12/10) std) but for some reason I can not get it at all to connect to the speedtouch router. So I am on the verge of admitting defeat here. And we also turned an OpenWRT question to a DD-Wrt one. – dimitris mistriotis Oct 17 '10 at 20:15
@dimitris, so change the title ;) – Cry Havok Oct 17 '10 at 22:11
@Cry Havok: Honestly thought the question titles were cast in stone. – dimitris mistriotis Oct 18 '10 at 20:21

You might try Fonera 2.0 firmware.

Hi Harry, you might have read the responses, do you think Fonera would help? – dimitris mistriotis Oct 18 '10 at 20:22
I never tried it, but some people recommended it for the D-Link DIR-615. – harrymc Oct 19 '10 at 4:47
