    I don't think you can make a wireless ethernet bridge out of that router, if that's what you're describing.

    A cheap, but labor intensive, way to turn an ordinary router into one is by flashing the router with DD-WRT and configuring that. I'm pretty sure the router would need to be a Broadcom-based one, also.

    Anyway, your router isn't compatible at all with DD-WRT. You could find a used Linksys WRT54G on Ebay (~$20) that would work.

    Otherwise, as you probably already know, a bridge will run you at least $50.

    An Edimax EW-7416 will do what you want, and is quite cheap.
