One advantage of a wireless bridge is the ability for the client to
PXE boot from their wired card, a feat which is tricky from a wireless

The Squeezebox devices can act as a network bridge, and I have my
bedroom frontend plugged into one and netbooting.

Sometimes the wireless doesn't provide enough bandwidth, sometimes it
does. I suspect other traffic is the problem, when my son goes into
his bedroom and starts browsing/downloading off his wireless laptop,
the bedroom PC seems to stutter more.
