871W dot11 interface as a receiver?

Hello,

I have a 871W with advanced IP services image.

What I have is a non-Cisco router which is connected to the internet and has a wireless.

What I want to do is set up the 871W radio interface to receive the signal from my other router (Internet) and route it(or NAT it) to the FE and WAN ports. I think this function is called something like a wireless bridge, but I am not sure.

Is it even possible to configure the radio like that? To be a receiver and send the signal to the wired ports? And how can I do this configuration?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Kalin

Re: 871W dot11 interface as a receiver?

Wireless bridge is proprietary.  It won't work if the radios aren't manufactured by the same company.  Cisco and Linksys won't work, for example.  Cisco and Cisco would work.

How about if I set up the radio as a Universal Wireless Client? 871W has that mode, but I wander if in this mode I can reroute the traffic received on the radio interface to the LAN and WAN interfaces and how?

If anyone has done something like that please share.

Thanks
