English term or phrase: bridge
Definition from Watch Guard:
A piece of hardware used to connect two local area networks, or segments of a LAN, so that devices on the network can communicate without requiring a router. Bridges can only connect networks running the same protocol.

Example sentence(s):
  • Create a single network segment using a bridge. In this solution, the separate LAN segments are bridged together to create a single network segment. With a single network segment, neighboring nodes on separate LAN segments send packets directly to each other and bridges forward the packets to the destination node on the appropriate LAN segment. Microsoft Tech Net
  • A network bridge connects multiple network segments at the data link layer (layer 2) of the OSI model, and the term layer 2 switch is often used interchangeably with bridge. Wikipedia
  • Extend the functionality of your network with this universal Wi-Fi bridge. The bridge enables a laptop or PC user without built-in wireless capability to connect to a wireless LAN . MacWarehaouse

Definition from http://ip-tietgennet.tietgen.dk/staff/ml:
bridge, bro
Arbejder på lag 2 (data link) - læser fysiske MAC-adresser.
En bro deler et lokalnet i flere logiske segmenter. Selektiv - filtrerer trafikken.
Benyttes også til konvertering mellem forskellige lokalnetsprotokoller - fx Ethernet og Token-Ring.

[IT-Lex]: Anvendes i datanet som betegnelse for en konverteringsenhed mellem to net. Der er tale om konvertering af såvel elektriske og signalmæssige formater (det fysiske lag) som protokollerne i dataoverførselslaget. En bro vil derfor have funktioner, som vedrører de to nederste lag i OSI-modellen. En bro kan virke som filter, dvs. kun overføre ikke-lokal trafik.
I lokalnet kan en bro også have funktioner fra OSI lag 3, dvs. rutning, og den kunne derfor benævnes router, men til forskel fra denne sker rutningen i broer ud fra MAC-adresser. Sådanne broer findes i varianterne "transparent bridge" og "source routing bridge".

  • bro: Software or hardware that connects two or more networks so that they can communicate, and that operates at the data-link layer (layer 2) of the OSI model. - Microsoft Terminology  

Explanation:
"bridge" kan også bruges på dansk, men bemærk, at Microsoft bruger "bro", jf. http://www.microsoft.com/language/en/us/search.mspx
