I wasn't aware that any wireless bridge was capable of WPA in bridge
mode... I remember being pissed when I bought my Buffalo compact
repeater bridge claiming WPA support and then when I tried to bridge
it to my Linksys, it would not connect. Buffalo tech support and
replied that bridge mode only works with WEP.

Either way, the wireless bridge is the way to go as then you don't
have to mess w/wireless setup in Linux. Not sure if wireless support
in Linux has gotten any better since the last time I tried a couple
years ago.
