I need to figure out how to connect my two linux boxes to my network, they work fine with my wired network but I really don't want to run 100ft of wire through my house (over door ways, around corners and what not). Is this what a bridge would be used for? The bridge would connect to my wireless network and then I can run the cable right into the box... I currently don't have a wireless card that is supported so I have to buy something just trying to make this as simple as possible though. Just looking for a simple yes this is what a bridge is for, or no but this works or no you are out of luck... thanks

Yes, that is what a wireless bridge is for. I used a Linksys WRT54G with DD-WRT firmware to create my wireless bridge.
