    I want to abuse the fact that the building I live in is wired for double occupancy rooms, mine is a single, and use both of the wall jacks to basically double up my connection. So here is the gist of what I want to do.

    EthPort1:Linksys WRT54GL wired to my raid array and 2 desktops
    EthPort2:Netgear WGR614v6 unprotected wireless router to share my internet with the rest of the building and to dump extra bandwidth into my LAN through the Linksys

    Not sure if this would be called a wireless bridge, or a multi-homed wireless/wired mesh, which is why I have had a hard time finding any info on how to set it up. Should I use dd-wrt or Tomato for this, or something else? Or is it possible at all? It's not that I necessarily want to use this for load balancing, I just basically want to use my Linksys as a normal Wireless client connected to the Netgear while it is also wired.
