I finnally bit the bullet and bought a Linksys WET11 used on ebay for $45 buy it now. i figure that it should have a descent lifetime so being used shouldnt be so bad. $45 is also almost 3 times less than brand new at $130. so ill be a happy camper if it works, and even happier if i can run it into a switch and use it for 3 different computers i have at home somewhere else in the house. its my understanding i need a PC so set it up, but i have the means. i looked all over the web for info on making my netgear router a bridge and just couldnt figure it out so i figured i would buy a real bridge Right on linksys's website they show a diagram of a WET11 being used with a switch so im guessing it will work just fine.
