    I just picked up a Netgear WGR614 v6 at a garage sale for $2.50.

    I've read that by flashing the firmware with custom firmware you can convert certain wireless routers into wireless bridges.

    Right now my PC is the only thing wired to my wireless router.
    Is it possible to turn this WGR614 into a wireless bridge so I can finally eliminate this last wire?

    Thanks for any advice!

    Thanks for those links.

    Looks like it can't be done since the router only has 1Mb of flash memory, and even the micro version of DD-WRT needs 2Mb.

    /sadness :/
