I need a wireless bridge but the cheapest one I can find is $179. Is it possible to instead purchase another wireless router maybe a Linksys WRT54G and Bridge them wirelessly?

Hacked firmware may allow that AP/Router combo to bridge. Not sure where your getting the 179 bucks from though. I assume your looking at dedicated workgroup bridges. Even then that would be overpaying by a VERY large margin. A quick look at newegg yielded a significant amount of AP/Bridges in the 50 to 70 dollar range. .11g Even a .11g dedicated bridge was only 116 bucks by Linksys. One thing to keep in mind while shopping though. Bridging is not part of any 802.11 standard. Best advice is to stay in the same Mfg family if your looking to bridge wirelessly.
