    I want to connect two ethernet networks with a wireless connection (not able to run a cable through the house). Thinking about using the Linksys WET45G, but will this work?

    This is my (desired) configuration:

    ADSL router
    |
    +--PC
    +--File server
    |
    Wireless bridge

    Wireless bridge
    |
    +--Test server
    +--PC

    All PC's should access the file server and the internet.

    Any advice on the bridge hardware is welcome.

    You can use two WRT54Gs not version 5. using WDS and third party firmware. You and use a WRT54G as a access point and a WET54G bridge. You can use two WAP54Gs one as an access point the other in Access Point Client or Bridge Mode. It all depends on on how much time and effort you want to put into it. If you are using third party firmware, be sure to do your firmware upgrades through a wired connection and only after you have reverted to factory defaults before and after the firmware upgrade.

    Looks like a steep learning curve.
    I’ll reconsider the cable option.
