Use D-Link DAP-1353 to connect an ethernet device to a wireless network

Hello Experts.

I want to connect an ethernet device to a wireless network with a D-Link DAP-1353.
I have a wireless network and a device with an ethernet card, but without a wireless card, and that d-link AP available.
The problem is that I can't use wired infrastructure to get to that device, so I'm thinking of connecting the device through the d-link AP.
First of all, I want to ask if this is possible.
(The AP client option seems like the thing I'm searching for, but didn't figured out how to use it.)

The manual for your router does not state how to put the router into bridge/client mode, even though it states it can be setup in that way on the data sheet and in the overview. If you do not see an option for this type of mode then you may need to get a different type of router to do the bridging.

Thank you for your quick answer, API_NOC, but I do read the manuals :)
If the manual were halpful, I wouldn't have post here, hehehe.

then you need to make sure the pc the dlink and your wireless network are all on the same network.

Of course they are on the same network.
IP wise and SSID wise.
The problem is that I don't have the option to authenticate to one of the other AP's. Even if I select same SSID, same encryption and password options when running in AP client mode, I'm not sure if the d-link is authenticating with the other 3com's.
Anyway, I'll wait an answer from someone who experienced this problem and solved it, even on another router.

Ok, another approach.
Is there other cheap AP that can do that?
MariusSunchaserAuthor Commented:
Solved it by myself. All I needed was a firmware upgrade.
I'm using WDS and AP mode with another identical AP in my network, and it's working like a charm.
