Also am I right in believing that the D-Link Bridge could act as a wireless port for a computer? By his I mean connecting the computer directly to the bridge to connect to the wireless without the need for a wireless network card / usb pickup device?

technically, if you just chained the routers together, and had the NAS plugged into the one that's in the remote location (your room i guess) then it would be on a different subnet and it wouldn't advertise to the network created by the main router. you'd still be able to get on the internet (because your router would be routing to the other router which routes to the internet....route route route). if the room mates KNEW about the NAS, they could still find it, but it won't show up in "network neighborhood" (or at least shouldn't) by default.


If I was to do this would I not need to attach the routers via cable?



yes, to be honest i didn't read this whole thread :D ....so if that's not do-able, just ignore me

DD-WRT is the Cat's meow......... http://www.dd-wrt.co...Wireless_Bridge

Is this what you're looking to do? If you do try to install the DD-WRT firmware in your router make sure you read and understand everything before attempting to flash the router. There is a list of compatible routers somewhere on their site.
