I now have the following setup...
DLINK ADSL Modem/router/wifi in the lounge, serving my laptop and MCE machine via wifi.
In the shed is a Belkin WiFi bridge connected with WPA encryption to the DLINK
The Belkin bridge is the uplink for a 16 port 10/100 switch feeding the following:
intel rack server (arriving this week)
pap2t for 2 x phone extensions from Asterisk
pap2t for VFX VoIP connection
amd asterisk box
amd windows box
intel spare box
linksys wrt54g wifi AP
I plan to run about 20 metres of CAT5e to connect the switch to the modem, eliminating that low-bandwidth wifi link.
So i have gone back to a single subnet, and soon will be fully wired as far as the network 'backbone' goes (for want of a less grand term for a single 100MB link!!)
I have a 1kVA rack ups arriving this week as well, which will keep some key services running nicely during the increasingly frequent brown-outs we have here (lose power for a second or less...)

How much did you pay for your bridge? I'm in the market for one myself
