WAG54G and Bridging


I'm about to purchase the linksys WAG54G which includes an ADSL modem, a 4 port switch and a wireless access point. It is known to work in both PPPoA and PPPoE modes, but my provider uses RFC1483 Bridge and DHCP to provide IP address. So my question is whether I'll be able to use it or not.
Thank's folks

Here it says you will (see page 15).

Just one thing, I installed one a few weeks ago at home, and at first I suffered from repeated unexpected resets. Finally I noticed that the wireless joystick emitter from one of the connected PC's interfered with its WiFi card, and that caused the router to reset itself (after which it didn't always restore the wireless connections, btw).

Thanks for the help,
but since you have one, I wonder which card are you using? Is a Linksys card recommended over a netgear card with Linksys routers/access points?

I'm using a linksys card on a desktop PC, but my laptop has a builtin wifi adapter and works just as well. So I assume another make of card will work just fine, provided the support of the proper standards (802.11b and g)

Hi,
I have another question. Is this device suitable for web hosting using a 256 k downstream and 128 k upstream ADSL connection (this is all i can afford for the time being).
Thanks in advance
