RouterOS 3.0-beta is the first version to have that feature, 2.9 and earlier don't.

RouterOS v3.x will have station-pseudo-bridge mode for this. That will enable you to put the client side's wireless and ethernet interfaces in a bridge to form a type of transparent bridge. Because of the protocol limitation in 802.11, if plain station mode is put in a bridge with ethernet, a mac address issues comes up.

I'd also say the best to get past this would be an EoIP tunnel betwteen the AP and client and then put the EoIP and ethernet interface in a brdige.

Easy.. : :lol:
