OK realized the access-point, at least Netgear AP does not do the
bridging I need. I got a regular Netgear printserver for 30 more bucks
to do the Job. Great!
A game adapter with single Ethernet port could I have done the Job but
the print server had more Ethernet switch ports and couple of USB
Hope this helps someone.
Next assignment is to connect the Ethernet switch port to Uplink of a
Netgear MR*** router and try to extend the Wi-Fi range. Comments?
