Sorry, I don't understand your question. If you just want an AP device
on your lan to allow for some wireless clients, then you could use a
WAP or a WRT. The WRT is cheaper, and with sveasoft firmware can be
configured to be a wireless access point. Plus still have grunt to do
some other fancy things. It would allow you to have your wireless
client on a different IP range and then route this onto the existing
