I found the answer on the Engenius site, which directed me to use a null modem cable to Telnet into the bridge and perform a reset. All is well now.

How to Enable a Switch to Transparently Transmit BPDUs That Are Discarded by Default?


You can enable a switch to transparently transmit BPDUs in the following modes:
1. Run the bpdu bridge enable command to enable the port bridge function. Then the switch can transparently transmit all BPDUs.
2. Globally specify the group MAC address of BPDU for the inbound and outbound ports of two edge switches on the network, and enable the L2PT transparent transmission function of the protocol for the ports.
Incoming BPDUs are replaced with the group MAC address, converted to data packets, and forwarded in the VLAN. Configure the L2PT function in the outbound port to replace the group MAC address with the BPDU MAC address.

How to disable MAC filtering


MAC (Multimedia Access Control) addresses are unique sets of codes assigned to electronic devices that identify the devices on a network. MAC filters work by either allowing or denying only specific MAC addresses. MAC filters are a great security measure; however, if your network needs to be open to public or guests, or you're adding and removing devices often, then you should consider turning off MAC filtering.

EditMethod One of Three:
Wireless Routers (Windows)


  1. 1 Open the Command Prompt. You can access it from the Start menu, or by pressing ? Win+R and typing cmd.

  2. 2 Type .ipconfig and press? Enter.

  3. 3 Find your active network connection.There may be several connections listed in the readout, and you may have to scroll up to find your active connection.

  4. 4 Look for the .Default Gatewayentry. This is the address for your router. Write it down.

  5. 5 Open a web browser. You can access your router's configuration page from any web browser as long as your computer is connected to the network.

  6. 6 Enter the .Default Gateway address into the browser's address bar.

  7. 7 Log in with your admin account.Routers are protected with an admin login and password. Check your router's documentation or look up the model online to find the default login information.
    • If you can't figure out how to log in to your router, you can reset it by pressing and holding the Reset button on the back for about 30 seconds. After the router restarts, you will be able to log in with the default admin information.
    • Most default logins use "admin" as the username, and then "admin", "password", or a blank field as the password.

  8. 8 Open the "Advanced" section and look for "MAC Filtering", "Access Control", or something similar. Actually defining where the "MAC Filtering" section is located is very difficult, as the location and labeling is different for every router. Generally, you can find the "MAC Filtering" or "Access Control" settings in the "Advanced" section, though it may also be found in the "Security" or "Wireless Settings" sections.
    • Not all routers use MAC address filtering. Some router's limit access based on static IP addresses assigned to each device.

  9. 9 Disable MAC filtering. Again, the wording and location will vary depending on the router, but you will generally be able to select a "Disable" option to turn off MAC filtering.
    • This may be a checkbox, a button or a selection that you can make.

  10. 10 Save your changes. Click the "Apply" or "Save" button to save your changes to the router settings. Your router will apply the changes, which may take a few moments.
    • If you are configuring your router over a wireless connection, you may be logged out when settings changes are saved.

Bridge will not find router


Setting up a wireless router with a Windows client can be complicated.
There are a number of measures and options that have to be understood, and it's all too easy to make a mistakes--but D-Link provides an easy-to-walk-through configuration system to help you set up your D-Link wireless router.

Plug one end of the Ethernet cable into the DSL modem.

Then plug the other end into the "WAN" port on the back of the D-Link wireless router.

Connect wired computers to any of the other Ethernet ports on the router using another Ethernet cable.

Access the D-Link Configuration Screen

Open your web interface and type "http://192.168.0.1" into the address bar, then hit "Enter" or "Return."

Use "Admin" as the username and leave the password blank when the login screen appears.

Click "OK." You should now see the D-Link configuration screen.

Set Up General Security

Change your administrative password by clicking on the "Tools" tab and choosing the "Admin" button. Enter a new password under the "Administrator" heading.

Confirm it, and click "Apply."
Disable the wireless Local Area Network (LAN) if you don't need to use the wireless access and you want to make sure no one else is able to access your network.

Under the "Home" tab, choose "Wireless" and select the "Off" option.

Enable Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP)

Locate the "Home" tab in the D-Link Configuration screen, and click on the "Wireless" button.

Use the "Open System" button beside "Authentication."

Select the "Enabled" button next to "WEP," and set the encryption key to "128 bit."

Set the "Key Type" to "ASCII" and choose a 13-digit password for the "Key 1" field.

Write down the password in a secure location.

Click "Apply."

Change the SSID

Change the SSID to make it more difficult for others to locate and use your network by clicking on the "Home" tab and locating the "Wireless" button.

Change the default SSID to one of your choosing, then click "Apply."

Disable SSID broadcasting.
Under the "Advanced" tab, click on "Performance" and check off the "Disabled" box. Again, click "Apply."
Filter MAC Addresses

Click the "Advanced" tab in the D-Link "Configuration" screen and select the "Filters" button.

Choose the "MAC Filters" and click on "Only Allow Computers with MAC Address Listed Below to Connect to the Network."

Enter the name and MAC address of the computers allowed to access the network, beginning with the one you are currently configuring.

Click "Apply."

How do i reset password for Alvarion BreezeCOM BreezeACCESS 2.4 Indoor Subscriber Unit Bridge/Router


There is NO way of resetiing the device. You need to get hold of the factory reset device program from alvarion. This allows you to connect to the device and run a small program into which you enter the MAC address of the unit. The software then sets the unit back to factory defaults. You will need to run this program by connecting a cat 5 cable to each of the units you wish to reset and entering the MAC address listed on the device.

I accdently place some numbers on the reject list help me please.


I can only assume on a wireless router you have entered in MAC address filtering to reject some addresses? If this is the case you can either - connect to it with a wired connection (MAC filtering is for the wireless only) or - reset the router to factory defaults by pressing the RESET button on the back of the unit for 30 seconds and reboot the router (for most brands)
If this is not the case please provide more information.

I hope this helps,

I want to access the internet using my MacBook.


You will need to check the wireless settings of the router ? Is there any computer connected to the router ? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router. open the set up page of the router and check the wireless settings of the router. Make sure that the wireless MAC filter is disabled on your router. If it is enabled then disable it and save the settings.

My pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
I also suggest :-
Change the default password
Change the default SSID
For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

ZyXel P660HW-T1 ... Problem bridging 2 wirless adsl routers


What do you mean by "wireless bridging"? Does it mean wirelessly connecting both routers? (ex. Zyxel is at location A and Micronet ais at Location B and you'll wirelessly connect them). If this is what you mean, then it might not be possible since those are two different brands and possibility is that they will not work with each other when they're wirelessly connected unless one or both routers have the capability to do so.
