    I have a wcg200 and have moved to a house without cable, but with a wired ethernet connection (in an incovenient location). Is there a way to plug the ethernet into the wcg200 and use the wireless capability to route the wired ethernet to my laptop and desktop? Do I need to buy another wireless router?

    what is this ethernet connection hooked up to at the other end of it? like a building T1?, depending on whats on the other end this connection, if theres a device designating IP addresses you could just extend this network to wireless by plugging it into one of the 4 switched ports on the back of the wcg, disable DHCP on the wcg and then connect to the wireless network that you have setup.

    yes its possible
