Hi, I have a Wireless - G Linksys router, and have the following problem:

- The only Internet access source is a wireless access point (no ethernet connections to the Internet directly)
- I have a desktop that can connect to the Internet via the wireless access point mentioned above.
- However, I would like to make the Internet access available to 4 wirelessly enabled laptops: is it possible to set up an arrangement where my Wireless - G Linksys router will accept as INPUT the wireless access point mentioned above (NOT the ethernet connection as is the default), and then allow the 4 laptops to wirelessly connect to the router to access the internet? If not, would it be possible to connect the router to my computer with an ethernet cable (since the computer already has a wireless card to access the wireless access point directly), and make the router think that it is directly connected to the Internet via that ethernet cable, and make the router in turn feed wireless Internet to the laptops?

Any help is appreciated!!
