I don't think running the Linksys software for the WMB54G under Wine
will help. The software grabs the audio stream at the sound card via
software, and redirects it to the bridge. I am trying to get it to
work unded VirtualBox running XP, but no luck so far. It does work
on my dual boot laptop under XP.

I did find a couple of interesting things - it is a true bridge - it
bridges the wireless and wired NICs, so you can use it to connect a
wired network segment to a wireless AP. I kind of with I have got a
couple more just for that. (It will even pass DHCP traffic across
the bridge.)

The other interesting thing is that it runs Linux. I am looking at
the source code now. So far, the most enlightening part has been the
kernel build options. This is going to be interesting.
