I would like my wired computers to be able to receive an internet connection. Here is the problem. In one room I have 6 computers.
1 file server, 1 dc,dhcp,dns server 1 application server, 3 desktops,
one 8 port 3com gigabit switch and 1 laserjet networked printer.
In another room I have my DSL modem hooked to trendnet 8011n wireless
router. 1 web server and another computer both hard wired into the router.How can I get internet to the computers in the other room.
Running cable through the wall is not an option as this is just a temporary setup used for edcuational purposes.

That was my thought. What is the difference between a bridge and router. I thought wireless access point or router in the other room,
then from there to switch. Would that work?

A wireless bridge connects to a wireless network and "extends" the network to ethernet devices.

A router routes traffic between two networks, often "the internet" and a local network.

You need a wireless access point in the first room and a wireless bridge (also called AP client) in the second room. The wireless bridge can be an Access Point or wireless router capable of being configured that way,.
