(also Wi-Fi bridge, network bridge)
A wireless bridging apparatus serves as a medium or method for linking two or more distinct local area networks (LANs) utilizing a wireless connection. This component establishes a connection between networks, enabling devices within each network to interact with those in another network without necessitating a direct physical connection. Frequently, wireless bridging systems are employed to expand the scope of a current network or to connect devices that do not possess a wired network interface.

Wireless bridges differ from wireless access points and range extenders. Wireless access points provide Wi-Fi connectivity to devices within a network, while range extenders amplify an existing Wi-Fi signal to extend its coverage. In contrast, wireless bridges connect separate networks, enabling communication between devices on different networks.
