    Does anyone know if it is possible to use a router (specifically the netgear DG834GT) as a bridge?

    I basically want the router to wirelessly pickup an internet connection from another router, and then distribute this connection over the LAN?

    Is it possible?

    Yes but it's might complicated to actually make it work (assuming that router has ethernet WAN) Probably just better off buying a wireless bridge that's built for the job.

    It doesn't. You'd connect to a LAN port, and disable DHCP etc.

    You don't. It's gone.
