My router went to silicon heaven and I needed to replace it.
I needed to connect two rooms in order to share network printer, NAS, and other devices. I have chosen router ASUS RT AC58U and bought two of them. By surprise these routers do not support wireless bridge mode.
After some searching there is ingenious open source project for routers firmware. LEDE Project This software completely replace the firmware and open all imaginable features. The firmware requires some knowledge of the networking and if you are not familiar with words like bridge, firewall then the beginning could be difficult.
Firmware and installation: Firmware

During experimenting is useful to know how to do factory reset.
- The router can also be reset by locating the reset button located on the router. This is located on the back or the bottom of the router.
- Press and hold the reset button on the router until the power light on the router begins to flash, and then release the button.
- The router should reset the settings and restart. The next time the router is accessed, the initial setup screen will appear.
