I got two RB951G-2HnD and two RBSXTG-5HPnD-HGr2.

(clientsOfLan1) ))> RB1 <---> SXT1 ))> <(( SXT2 <---> RB2 <(( (clientsOfLan2)

I need to 'connect' two LAN's around 951.

I can't figure out how to 'bridge' those two networks that clientsOfLan1 could see clientsOfLan2 on L2 layer.

RB1/2 is in ap bridge SXT1 is station pseudobridge SXT2 is ap bridge

I am quite lost. Can anyone suggest how to achieve this? I need same L2 (ethernet) network on both sides best possible latency and bandwidth. I want use/setup SXT1 and SXT2 to simulate a 'wire' that I connect between those two routerboards.

Are LAN1 and LAN2 on the same subnet? – EEAA Nov 9 '14 at 14:07
They are both on (L3). But I dont know to setup SXT's to create 'switching' (L2) network. – svobol13 Nov 9 '14 at 14:10
Don't bridge two IP networks through a pseudobridge. Pseudobriding is only suitable for bridging a single layer 2 device. – David Schwartz Dec 8 '14 at 19:07

(clientsOfLan1) ))> RB1 <---> SXT1 ))> <(( SXT2 <---> switch <(( (clientsOfLan2)

if you want LAN1 and LAN2 use the same subnet, just make RB1 as the main router. LAN1 and LAN2 assign DHCP from RB1.

i did it on my office.

thank you.
