Wireless WAN to wireless LAN using WET54G

    I'm looking for some advice on hardware/configuration choices here. I have a summer house where the only broadband access is via a WiFi supplier. The wifi charges per connecting device. What I'd like to do is to have one device that connects to the WiFi WAN and obtains a single connection, and then to attach that device to a wifi LAN where the others in the house can connect via wifi cards in their laptops or wired to a router. The suggestion I received from Linksys tech support was to use a WET54G bridge connected to any wifi router.

    Does anyone else have experience setting something like this up? Basically I want to have multiple computers connecting, but only look like connection to the wifi WAN

    (I have been able to approximate this by using a laptop with a wifi card, using XP ICS on that connection, and connecting an Apple Airport Express in router mode. This works great, but I'd like to do this without involving a PC)
