    Hey,
    Sorry if this was already asked, I checked but I didn't see anything.
    Is it possible for a Linksys Router to be used as a Reciever? I already have a router and reciever set up but want to add a third computer.

    Also, what computer model is required? For example, can I use a Windows 98 or 93?

    Thanks!

    with a 3rd party firmware like hyperwrt on the WRT54G you can put the WRT54G into wirleless client mode.
