I'm not sure I'm using the correct terminology; I may be looking for "node" instead of "bridge".
What I'd like to do is use an inexpensive self-contained wireless device to allow an ethernet-equipped time and attendance terminal to access (and be accessed by) our office network. Even though the distance is only 40', hard-wire is impossible (economically and cosmetically).
We presently have a wireless access point by which several office computers use the LAN. I'd like the terminal to access the LAN by the AP we already have, rather than having to create a bridge connection with two new wireless devices.
I've configured ONE AP in the last three years (and used a wizard), so I'm not familiar with the features of cheap WallyWorld APs like LinkSys, etc.
