Wifi to Ethernet??

Hey guys...

Just wondering... Is there any way to convert a Wifi signal into ethernet somehow? I have a Wifi router which feeds 3-5 computers at the same time. I am a computer tech, and I have a separate keyboard, mouse and monitor on my desk to plug in customers' computers, however, I would like to be able to get internet access to that terminal using ethernet (I would hate to go through the process of installing a Wifi adapter on my customers' computers every time). Is there any way to do this? (BTW, I'm not near the router, so cabling is not an option).


Thanks a lot,

Alfonso

Your question makes no sense to me.  Wifi is Wireless Ethernet.  How else would you get network connectivity to something WITHOUT wireless if you're not going to connect a cable?

Sorry if I wasn't clear...I'm so busy I didn't even review my post.

What I need is this:

The cable modem goes to the WiFi router, then I need something to convert the wireless signal back to wired, to a standard Cat5 Ethernet port

Ok, yes, that's more clear.  You need a wireless bridge.  I'm sure others have them, but I've only seen them from DLink and Linksys.

You seem to be talking about putting a wireless bridge in place, that in turn provides ethernet to the PC.  These are also known as workgroup bridges.
