You can probably set it up to run as a client and hook up your PC via an Ethernet cable... that's what I do with all my gear around the TV that only takes wired connections...

Yeah, I'm currently using my TP-Link TL-MR3020 portable 3G router in WISP mode to act as a ethernet to wireless bridge (well, router really as it's also doing NAT, firewall and port forwarding stuff). Oddly though, if I put it in Access Point mode I can't connect to it over ethernet (so I'm not quite sure what that mode's meant to do).
Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!
Cheers. It's connected but I can't seem to access it. 192.168.0.5 should do it but it's not connecting.
