Bridge LAN ports to act like a switch - step by step instructions


  • When I was reading the thread for "Bridge LAN ports to act like a switch"  the step-by-step instruction on how to configure other LAN ports to act as a switch is no longer valid.

    I would appreciate it if anyone can provide me a link or info.

    Body:
    Don't.  Use a real switch instead.

    The end.
