I would use a WLAN-router or bridge.


I recently bought a DSL-router with WLAN functionality and after a
little testing i realized that it also acts like a bridge. Any WLAN
device can reach any wired device on the switch where i connected the
WLAN-router.

No drivers, no hassle, just a wasted IP for reaching the web-interface
of the router. ;-)

Altough i don't know if it is a standard feature or not, it just worked
in my case. :-)

Pro:
- Easy to setup, use & change

Con:
- No direct control within the server

cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
