  for the sake of doing embedded work when i want to wire up some
basic dev kits to the net but don't have immediate access to the
router,  i'm looking for a decent wireless ethernet bridge.  i'm
assuming something like this is what i'm after, correct?

  weirdly, when i asked a couple salesweasels at local shops, they
looked at me blankly, not sure if such things even *existed* after i
explained their hypothetical function.

  am i misunderstanding something here?  it seems straightforward what
i'm after -- some tabletop wired ethernet ports, which provide net
connectivity via a wireless router in the vicinity.  thoughts?
