Need to set up bridge to WAP

    Right now my setup is this:
    Cable modem --> Linksys (wired) Router BEFSR41 ver 3 --> Belkin WAP F5D7130. My desktop plugs into the Linksys router, as does a webcam, through a loooooong ugly cable. My laptop connects to the Belkin WAP.

    I used points earned on my credit card to get this webcam for free, but it's wired. I'd like to do away with the long cable. The AP is supposed to be configurable as a bridge and I should be able to plug the webcam into it, through a short cable since it would be next to the AP. I want to buy a wireless router that will allow this. I understand that the Belkin F5D7230-4 router would work only if it's version 9, but no online seller is able to tell me the version before I buy it. I already sent back a version 8 router to Amazon. So now I'm looking for a Linksys wireless router that will allow me to connect my laptop and also the Belkin AP so the webcam can plug in.

    Can anyone advise me what Linksys wireless router to get? Or a better, yet still inexpensive, solution? (I've been figuring it's most economical to not waste the Belkin AP.)
