    i'm considering buying a wireless to wired network bridge (WET54G) and
    am not really sure how it'd work. say you're wireless network is
    using WEP or WPA. how do you tell the bridge that?

    the user guide (page 22) suggests that the WET54G has a web interface
    (presumably for this very reason). the default ip address to this web
    interface is what happens, however, if your network
    configuration uses ip addresses of the form 10.*.*.*? i assume wouldn't work, at that point.

    ....or what if the ip addresses that are assigned by the router aren't
    internal - what if they're directly route-able to the internet? eg.
    what if, when i plug two computers into a hub that's plugged into the
    WET54G's lone ethernet port, i'm supposed to get two IP addresses that
    the outside world can see? obviously wouldn't work,
