I actually have exactly that setup....
Cable Modem <----> Shorewall Box <----> WRT54G (WAP & switch only, WAN
My Shorewall box is plugged into a switch port on the WRT54G...
Works like a charm!

I thought of that, but am concerned about this statement:
"Does NOT work as a bridge! Will only talk to a client."
in a comparison table at:
Of course, a switch != bridge ... not really sure how to understand
the comment about "Will only talk to a client" ...
Has anyone used the WRT54G only as a switch/WAP? I'd be very happy if
that'll work ...
Thanks for your comments!
