WRT54G and BEFW11S4 Bridging

    Is there a way to bridge the two together by using the BEF as the sub-net device? I would like to keep the WRT as the primary router because of the advanced filtering features. I want to be able to lock out the BEF for specific hours of the day when I'm not home.

    What I have is PC A & B connected to WRT which is connected to the DSL line - this is all in a locked room. PC C & D connected to the BEF that the kids can use during the day. I would like to setup the BEF so that it is on the DSL during the evening hours, so that we can monitor them easier.

    I could put wireless cards in both C & D and do away with the BEF, but we have SIX networks visiable, and most of them are unprotected, so they can just connect to those.

    Now, I think I can easily do what I want with TWO WRT's with the C/D network one having the firmware changed to one of the free firmwares that support this... But that requires another purchase that I really do not want to make.

    Any suggestions?
