    Can you use a wireless bridge to connect trunk ports on a pair of Linksys SRW switches??

    I am going to be setting up a network connection between my office and my house. My In-laws live a quarter mile away from my house, and since they are still using 28.8k dial up I was going to be nice and share our high speed internet with them. I do not though want them to be able to access our computers at work, (I have had to remove/fix many things on their computer before that I do not want compromising our shop computers) so using a VLAN setup would be ideal.

    I dont see why it wouldnt as long as the wireless connection is stable, however you might be better off especially if you want to keep the inlaws out of the network as a whole to run a seperate vlan on those ports and then setup access restrictions. If you trunk the traffic across its much easier to accidently let malicious traffic into the shop network then if you use a seperate vlan altogether.
