I have an existing wireless network through a different Cisco WAP.  I have a device that needs to be hard wired.  I have a Linksys/Cisco E4200, can I use it to connect to the existing wireless network, and convert it to one of the ports in the back to be used by the wired device?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes, you can do that by loading DD-WRT firmware on the E4200 and using it in AP Client mode, though that makes for an expensive wireless adapter.

    Read and try to get an understanding of the Peacock Thread first, then the E4200-specific instructions.
