This is offtopic as well - I wanted to mention this an not leave Michael
hanging here ;-) If folks want to know more about this wireless
meshing, etc just email me (I don't want to pollute this list).

Sure it would. A second WRT54g simply needs wallpower and that's it.
It acts as a bridge AND an AP (increasing the wireless mushroom).
Simply plug the laserjet4 into the wrt54g and it will bridge in WDS mode
(the setup is easy and well documented on the Sveasoft forum). I would
suggest disabling the loopback interface as that's what started this
thread ;-) Any further questions or troublshooting for the Sveasoft
I'll take offline for ya'all
