Using Beagleboard as a wireless bridge

Hi All,

In my current living arrangement, I only have access to WiFi. I have various other electronics that connect only via Ethernet (beagle board/printer). I understand that Linux/GNU (BSD for that matter) can bridge between two network connections. I'm not sure if the beagle board (xM) HW support this.

My plan is to use a WiFi dongle for the beagle board and plug the Ethernet port into a local switch; from there I can connect my hardwired equipment.

You may want to look at Using a beagleboard you would
need to place your wi-fi into ad-hoc. You can also afford 2-3 openwrt
boxes for the same $$
