You just plug your wired NIC into the bridge and configure the wireless connection through a standard web browser. No network drivers are required. I use this model:

Here's a screenshot for you: http://4crito.com/screenshots/bridge.png

A couple caveats: First, the supplied software only works (and not too well, I might add,) with Windows. So that'll be the first thing to toss out. Just use the web interface. Second, the default config uses a password common to all Linksys devices which, if you don't immediately change, will soon develop into a discusion on "war driving". Third, my example of not using any encryption is a bad one, and it's only because my house is surrounded by woods and out of range of anyone else that I can get away with it.

thanks a lot for the reply with the attachment. Looks very basic to install, I shouldn't have any problems connecting it to my wireless network.
