    This is the situation: right now i have one server running SBS2000 (Exchange + ISA Server) with 2 ethernet cards. One i connected to DSL Modem. The other is connected to a switch were other 10 pcs are connected. The server is a domain controller.

    All i want to do is replace the ethernet switch and ethernet cards on the client computers with wireless cards and a WRT54G router to act as a "wireless switch". Is this posible? If it's should i configure the router and the server to allow clients to access internet and SMTP through exchange server??

    Thanks for your help.

    Yes, you can easily do this...just plug everythingin to LAN ports and it should work out of the box without any extra coinfiguration.

    Actually you will also have to disable DHCP on the router. Then it should work fine.

    Change the router's IP so that it is similar to the IP addresses in use on your network. IE And connect it via a Lan port to the server. After disabling DHCP on the router all wireless clients should receive their DHCP from the server and it should work just as though they were still wired to the switch.
