WIFI Bridge Under Suse 9.1

What I am trying to do is connect my wired network to a wireless router at the other side of my home. Reason for this is so my wired network can get online. I cannot move the wifi router because my modem cannot be moved from that location and hard wiring is not an option (I am renting the house).

The equiptment I have is a Linksys BEFW11S4 v2 router and the usb wifi card is a Linksys WUSB11 v2.8 (atmel chipset). I am trying to get the usb adapter installed on my Suse 9.1 box and then bridge the connection to my wired network which also happens to be gigabit.

If anybody knows how I can make this work with existing equiptment, great I don't have to spend money. If it's not possible maybe you could suggest a wifi nic, usb or pci that would work with Suse 9.1.
