Originally posted by Damon Spector I want computer A to use wireless access point B to connect to wireless access point A and share the DSL connection.

Typically AP's won't try
and connect - it's not their function.
I believe the bridging functionality is built into some Routers/APs - at extra cost. In the case of bridging different subnets, I guess both ends would need to be aware. Don't know, just a guess on my part.
I achieved what you want to do by making AP-B a repeater. Again this functionality is hard to find. I bought the AP off a mate because I could use it this way. Doesn't have an ESSID as in repeater function it "knows" it doesn't need one - uses the ESSID of the router, which does DHCP for everyone. Extends my network transparently.
