wireless router to wireless router, wirelessly, possible?

  1. Hello all,

    Have an old computer with ethernet and would like to find a cheap
    wireless solution to get it to my wireless LAN. PCI,USB, et. al.
    adapters are not possible. I intend to use the ethernet card in the
    box now
    and hook into something wireless to get me connected to the WLAN.

    Before buying I am trying to figure out if I can use a wireless router
    to talk to another wireless router? They are much cheaper than a
    wireless
    ethernet bridge and offer more utility as well.

    Has anyone done this? Some sort of ad-hoc type connection between
    Wireless routers? Or am I stuck buying a wireless bridge/router
    or an wireless ethernet bridge?


    Richard

    This si one possible way of connecting two routers and both routers are
    wireless. I followed that procedure to connect my wireless Linksys router
    to my Ethernet WatchGuard FW appliance so that I could still have wireless
    and the wireless router with its Ethernet LAN ports became a wire/wireless
    AP switch could use the switch and machines wired or wireless on both
    devices could access the Internet and share resources between machines.

    There are a fews options with the WRT54G Linksys product using 3rd
    party
    firmware such as Sveasoft. I use a WRT54g and a WAP54g for the same
    purpose.
    The WAP54g is in AP client mode....works well.
