    I see the DWL-G810 bridge
    but it appears this is used to connect ONLY ONE Ethernet device to a
    wireless, such as a game console, or PC device. Their pictures always
    show each device with it's own G810.

    I want to connect two separate WIRED lans, each one having its own
    switch. To interconnect two wired networks, could I use 2 DWL-G810's?

    I have used DWL-900AP+ in bridge mode to do this. I know the
    DWL-900AP+ will interconnect 2 wired networks. I've also looked at
    the DWL-2100AP in bridge mode.

    from dlink tech support the 2100 is purported to have more power and range
    than the 810

    I just looked on the DLink website for the two devices and it shows
    that they BOTH have the same output transmit power:

    15 dBm +/- 2 db

    Is there some other information I'm missing that you found?

    Can the DWL-G810 pass multiple ip's across the bridge or is it just
    one device?

    It looks like DWL-G810 can only accommodate one wired device, and is itself
    a wireless client, not an AP.

    What I can't tell is the difference between the DWL-G810 Wireless Bridge and
    the DWL-G820 Wireless Gaming Adapter, except that the 810 has a 1 dBi
    antenna and the 820 has a 2 dBi antenna.
