I have an 802.11b wireless router.

I am looking to connect three ethernet devices to my network using one
wireless bridge and a switch.

From what I've read, some devices on the market support this, some do
not.

Can anyone tell me from first hand experience which brands/models will
work and which will not?

The Linksys WET11 is one device that would work in that situation,
at least to some of the Linksys wireless routers. I have a
similar setup to a BEFW11S4.

I have a setup like this with a Dlink 810+ wireless bridge, I connect
it to the uplink on just a regular network hub. Just a word of
caution, the dlink stuff likes comunicating mainly with other Dlink
equipment

I have a D-Link DI-713P wireless router.

I'm curious about your experience with the Dlink DWL-810+. I've seen
more than one post from people who claim that that model specifically
does NOT work when connected to a switch. What brand(s) and model(s)
of wireless router and switch are you using?

The Bridging aspect of the 802.11 spec has not been finalized. Therefore,
these bridge devices can only "talk" to other devices that use the same
protocol. That would have to be same-brand devices.

There may be devices that can bridge between manufacturers, but I wouldn't
count on it.

Good luck,
