    I've read a lot of the threads here about how to use the WRTGS as an access point or range extender for my already existing wireless network, so I am not going to waste your time asking how exactly.

    I am wondering, however, a small detail of it. I know most people are looking for range extension, I am not. I would like to be able to use my WRTGS as a wireless access point for another wired device. I have a wireless router in my router cabinet and I want to know if I can have my WRTGS in another room, connected wirelessly to the intial router, and still use the wired ports on the WRTGS? Basically, I just want to know if when people are using their WRTGSs as range extenders, can you use the wired ports on the WRTGS acting as a range extender?

    Very simply I am trying to hook up an Xbox (lol) to my network without buying the wireless adapter for it and without running a cable to it. Is this possible?

    I hope I was lucid enough in my explanation to get a reply here.

    Just to rephrase, since I guess I used the wrong terminology, I want to use the router as a wireless network bridge.

    Still don't undertand. However, to the best of my knowledge, you can find tutorials on the dd-wrt wiki ( on how to set up things.
