Hi All,

I am trying to connect a computer with an Ethernet port
and no spare PCI slots to a small WPA2 protected wireless
network.

Does anyone have recommendation for a wireless bridge
that supports WPA2?

I had been using USR products, but had to stop using
any of their products do to a hardware design defect
in their eeproms circuits that kept them from saving changes.

I also looked at the Linksys WET54G but no
WPA2 (only wpa1).

I found a ZyXel G-570S but have no experience with
their reliability.

Anyway, I thought it was time to ask for help.

Many thanks,
-T

Using this Linksys unit:

with DD-WRT firmware as a wireless bridge as you describe. Very happy
with it. Sorry, don't know if OEM firmware does it, I flashed with the
DD-WRT right out of the box.
