Network Bridges

In this article we will discuss Network Bridges, will make brief discussion on Network Bridges, In last article we discuss about Router.

A network bridge is a computer networking device that creates a single aggregate network from multiple communication networks or network segments. This function is called network bridging. Bridging is distinct from routing.

bridge is a type of computer network device that provides interconnection with other bridge networks that use the same protocol. Bridge devices work at the data link layer of the Open System Interconnect (OSI) model, connecting two different networks together and providing communication between them.

Ethernet bridge, connects two segments of a network together. The segments are not independent entities, but are owned and managed by the same organization. The purpose of the bridge is to divide a network into manageable sections. Bridges can extend a network by acting as a repeater. Bridges can reduce network traffic on a segment by subdividing network communications. Bridges increase the available bandwidth to individual nodes because fewer nodes share a collision domain.

A wireless bridge connects two wired networks together over Wi-Fi. The wireless bridge acts as a client, logging in to the primary router and getting an Internet connection, which it passes on to the devices connected to its LAN Jacks
