Oh, I guess the C1 revision has different options. Client bridge with an added virtual interface will simulate a repeater bridge for you (if you enter the same security details in the vi). Also, give the latest brainslayer firmware a go: v14815.
edit: actually you will need a different SSID for the virtual interface, so not really exactly what you were looking for?
After doing hours of reading, I am asking a question I should have had asked first.
Lets begin with the beginning, I currently have a D-Link DIR-601 (main router) and purchased a Asus RT-N13U to do a wireless bridge.
I purchased the asus to do dd-wrt so that i can wireless connect my HTPC & Xbox 360 in my living room. The HTPC is used to stream HD content from my main computer (currently located 2 rooms away). In the HTPC I have a wireless G card, but when streaming 720p, i get stutter in the video. When connected through a 100ft Ethernet cable, the video plays smoothly.
So back to the question, Since my DIR-601 does not support a repeater-bridge, I will be unable to do the setup i want? Would i need to purchase another router like the ASUS that supports those modes?
I already put ddwrt on the asus and it seems to pick up other wireless signals, but it does not show mine under the "site survey"
Thank you for the help and sorry for the noob question. I am trying to learn as much as I can, but time is not what i have a lot of.

I followed the instructions as close as possible and I now have a DIR 615 as a repeater bridge, but when I enable security,
my Linux (Ubuntu) machines can not connect,
my macintoshes, seem to connect initially but then fail to get a IP address, when I click on the network diagnostic and let OSX repair the connection, I see in the network preferences that the computer checks out an IP address, downloads half a page then loses its IP address again, I can do this over and over again while loading pages.
I tried to force a dhcp request from the command line on the linux machines but that did not help.
Right now, I turned off security and things work fine,
I tried WPA personal and WPA2 personal, with same settings on the primary router as on the secondary repeater.
I am using DD-WRT
Firmware Version DD-WRT v24-sp2 (08/07/10) std - build 14896
OK, I ended up disabling the SSID broadcast on the bridge, I might go with MAC filtering in the future.
I set the primary router back to WPA2 personal and let the bridge log into the primary using WPA2 personal. The bridge is now less secure, but I believe DD-WRT has some issues with security surrounding the client-bridge setup on atheros. Everything seems to be working reliably this way.
I don't think there is this requirement to have the same security setting on the bridge as on the primary when they have different SSID (in the case of atheros, when the bridge goes via a virtual interface).
Just wondering if anyone else has run into this issue.
I'm having similar problems.
I have an old dlink connected to my modem, and I have a DIR-600 V2 on the other side ... what happens when I connect the DIR-600, initially the internet works fine, but ping test, half of the responses are lost, and also I can not create a virtual client, because the Internet does not work then.
excuse my English is a translator, I am Brazilian.
I'm considering the chance of a virus from another network in the note, or perhaps the old dlink is on borrowed time. I'll try to exchange the old for a dlink cisco I have another site to see if it works, but if anyone knows anything, please let me know.
This is very weird. I have been using DD-WRT on my WRT610N, WRT160N, Fonera 2100, and setup as client bridge is never a problem.
The DIR-615C1 has routing issues with firmware build BS 14929, 14896 and all device hooked up to it can't obtain IP automatically. If I use static IP, it cannot access any external IPs (internal IPs are OK). Pinging the DIR-615 has no response.
I went down to the most reliable ones for my Linksys - BS 14684. With the same settings, the DIR-615 as client bridge is working great.
ok... can I set up my router as a repeater bridge with a dinamic IP? Static IP is "obrigatório"? And if it's a network virus on the other note? But I don't belive it's THE problem...
What if in Brazil things are diferent? LoL
