I want to plug my D-Link DWL-G710 Range Extender into the Ethernet port of a PC that is without any wireless network cards, and access the Internet through the range extender connected to the Ethernet port. Is this possible? How do I do it?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This is not possible with the Dlink firmware because they did not build that model for that particular purpose, and unfortunately, I don’t know of any third party firmware vendors that support dlink.

http://www.sveasoft.com/ is an interesting company if you want to learn more about third party firmware development.
