R7000 AP Repeater Bridge Issues


I have two R7000 routers on the latest DD-WRT v3.0-r31160M kongac (1/18/17). I am having issues setting up a repeater bridge that works reliably. The issue that I'm seeing is that the Router Bridge mode router connects to the AP for about 8 seconds, then it drops back off. It reconnects for about 8 seconds again, drops off again.



Router 1 (AP) :

2.4Ghz Interface

 - IP:

 - SSID Set, NOT broadcasting

 - 20MHz Channel width

 - Wireless Channel 6

 - N/G Mixed

 - All other settings disabled (Multicast traffic, Beamforming, TurboQAM, etc)

 - Network Bridged Mode Enabled


 - SPI Firewall Disabled


 - WPA2 Personal - AES 

DHCP Server

 - Enabled

Status / Wireless tab

  - My Repeater Bridge ->  

 NOTE: it says HT40 here...

E4:F4:C6:XX:XX:XX wl0 0:00:08 216M 216M HT40 -34 -88 54

Router 2 (Repeater Bridge)

- Repeater Bridge Mode

- Gateway pointed at IP of AP

- IP:

- Subnet

- DHCP Disabled


 - Repeater Bridge

 - N-Only (This does not match the AP, but changing this allowed the bridge to connect and remain connected)

   - Changing this to N/G Mixed Would not connect

- All Options disabled

- Network Configuration Bridged


 - WPA2 Personal - AES - Same Password as AP


 - SPI Firewall is disabled

STATUS/Wireless Tab -

  - Please NOTE that on the AP Bridge it mentions HT20, and on the AP it seem to think it's HT40

E4:F4:C6:XX:XX:XX wl0 0:00:08 216M 216M HT20 -35 -92 54


I can't tell if this is a bug in the Bridging, or if i have something misconfigured. It seems to be the case that toggling some of the values will force it to connect, but if i reboot the Repeater Bridge, It will not connect again with the same values.

Please advise, and thank you for your help!

I've got issues too with my

I've got issues too with my R7000 running that build as well. It won't connect to a router I'm bridging from, however it will with an older build. 4/19/16 I think. Seems any of the newer build past that, in the 3,000's repeater functions won't connect.
