This is an intriguing notion! I just happen to have sitting on a nearby
shelf an old Netgear WG602 wireless bridge that we used years ago,
before a Linksys wireless router arrived and DD-WRT made life much better.
So I can hook this thing up backwards and use it to sit on our wlan?
Whoda thunk? Well apparently someone did, and I'm glad for that. Woohoo!
Thanks for the pointer!
