It would be more appropriate to use a Wireless Bridge to setup a remote
wired LAN. Many Access Points can be configured as a Bridge.

See:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/kb_web_files/n101236.asp
for notes on how to setup a Netgear wireless router as an access
point.

The big headache is that DHCP (broadcast) pass thru fails with some
routers (and some firmware versions).

Thankyou, a lttle more explanation, I have a WGT624 in use as a wireless
Router, I have access to another 624, i was wondering if I could use the 2nd
624 as a Wireless Access by connecting it to a PC on the network that has
LAN On Board , eg; get the Internet Access 624 to talk to the 2ND 624
connected to the LAN on the PC, now I'm confused,

anyhow Thanks

Rgds

Nope. The WGT624 does not have a "client" radio mode. It can play
router, access point, or bridge, but not act as a client radio.

What you want is something called a "game adapter". Linksys WET11,
Netgear ME101, or Dlink DWL-810. These are the client part of a
transparent bridge. You can connect your "PC" to one of these
wireless bridges, client radio, game adapter, or whatever it's called
this week, and use it to connect to your existing WGT624. What the
dumbed down data sheets don't bother to tell you is that you can also
connect up to about 30 PC's to one of these (through an appropriate
ethernet switch). I suggest advertisting for a trade.

Incidentally, you can see what you're getting with the DWL-G810 using
the online emulator.

I wished the other manufacturers would do something like this.
