Wireless Access Point ??

Ok.. Right now I have the dlink dwl-g520 pci wireless network card. But Installing drivers is just eating me up... Is it possible for me to just buy a wireless access point, or bridge, so I can just plug right in??

If I can just buy a bridge and plug it in to my comp, then which ones should I buy???

I have a dlink 802.11b router. Can someone help please..

My background reading on wireless stuff suggests that bridges are not allways as compatible as they should be and it would be a good idea to get from from the same manufactuer as the access point.

I think that to use one access point as a client of another it has to support acting as a bridge so you will have to check before buying it.

Let us know if it works.
