Can I use my old wireless router as a wireless bridge?

I have a wireless setup at home with a netgear wireless ADSL router connected to my ADSL, and my main pc wired in to it upstairs.

However, I also want to have a small network downstairs and cant/dont want to run wires. I have my old(er) Linksys WAG354G ADSL router and was wondering if there is any way to set it up bridge between 2 wired sub-networks?

I know its possible to purchase special wireless bridghe devices, but I dont want to spend £45 if I dont need to, and my linksys router is unemployed at the moment ;-)

  1. You can check for dd-wrt firmware (http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php) for your router that allows it to be put into bridge mode.

  2. I think it doesnt support the WAG354G.

    ARe you saying that with the standard firmware its simply not possible?
  3. I don't know if it is or isn't. I'm not familiar with a WAG354G. Go to the Linksys Support site and check.
