    I must be missing something. I want to wire my pc to my WRT54G (lan port) and allow it (WRT54G) to act like a wireless nic. (no wan port used) It will connect to an AP just like a wireless card would.

    My pc would use IP like allow the router to assign one in this range. wrtg4g use auto dhcp which the wireless side picks up from the networks AP. like in a hotel. My pc would then be able to connect through their AP to the internet and I would hace a good wireless nic that I can set away from my pc into a good connect area such as a window.

    I thought this was what client mode did but the info I am able to find seems this may not be the case.

    Is it possible to have my WRT54G act like a wireless NIC?

    If so are the any steps archived to explain how?

    Thanks for any help.
