    I want to make sure I understand the various "non-Access Point" wireless modes, as the documentation is kinda weak on this.

    "Wireless Client" - would mean that the wifi port is used to connect to the ISP, with NAT/DHCP working on all the LAN ports on the back of the router

    "Wireless Ethernet Bridge" - Connect to the ISP via WiFi, toss any packets received via the LAN ports up to the WiFi ISP unaltered.

    "Access Point + WDS"
    These two I'm not sure about. I'm not sure what distinguishes the two of these. WDS, I though, included an access point logic by default. Is it that "Access Point + WDS" adds some sort of localized NAT aspect of it? (e.g., the two wireless network devices talk to each other via WDS, but then any other clients which connect to the WRT54GL unit get treated like a standard AP, being DHCP/NAT'ed to the WRT54GL's upstream link?)
