    Wireless Bridging

    I have wired SB's running off my home ethernet. My house is wired up for it so I have avoided any wireless networking.

    Was wondering if I were to buy a wireless SB and run that wired into my ethernet, can I use the wireless cabability of the SB to connect to my wireless laptop/pda (to act as better interface to Slimserver). It would be handy for parties and outdoor use to have a wireless connection between my laptop and one of my SB's.

    The manual explains how wireless bridging can be used to connect wired items (i.e. Xbox) into a wireless network using the bridging function. I want to do it the other way round - connect a wireless device into my wired network.

    Am I being crazy?

    Wireless Bridging

    What you are requesting is a wireless access point. The squeezebox can
    serve as a bridge only. Use as an access point is not possible, at
    least not at this time.

    Thanks for the quick reply.

    Thought it was too good to be true.

    Such wonderful words, "not at this time"

    Is it technically feasible to have the current devices be an access point or a wireless repeater like the Airport Express? Or would that imply hardware changes?

    I'm hoping it's really just a firmware upgrade away

    Wout.
