I recently got an original graphite base station for $20 and was wondering if I could set it up as a bridge for an existing network. I've already got a 2Wire modem broadcasting in 11b and another router broadcasting in 11g. I really don't want a 3rd wireless network in my house, and would rather just use this thing to boost the signal from my 2Wire. I've read its possible with some sort of hack, but couldn't find any details. Anyone know if I can do this?

Don't quote me on this, but i don't think that functionality was included in the original APBS. The newer ones could, but not the original. At least not out of the box... Not sure about a hack to get it to do that, but it's been a while since i've used apples wifi hardware.
