    Tried several methods to use the client bridge with the main ap set to mac filtering. The bridge works flawlessly with Mac filtering disabled, filter set to allow only, the mac address of the wireless on the bridge and the mac address of the computer Lan card. Tried all the mac addresses no go, Also tried all the 3 mac addresess of the bridge and all at once, anyone have any suggestions?

    Which version of DD-WRT are you using?

    Also, which hardware?

    In the past, I had to turn MAC filtering off or else new clients connected to the LAN on the bridge side would get no connection.
    I don't know if enabling MAC cloning would work.
    Else, you will have to re-route (client mode instead of client bridge mode).

    WPA does not work in either client/route or client/bridge mode if MAC filter is enabled. WEP works fine with MAC filter enabled in both mode.
