For reasons of architectural design and the way people installed the phone lines in the 80s, my desktop and the router are a long way apart. I ran CAT5 out to the desktop and that works great but wireless access near my desktop (for my phone/tablet/etc) a big pain in the bottom.
The main issue is my phone dropping back to 2G, interfering with my speakers and causing THEMOSTANNOYINGNOISEINTHEWORLD.
Now my desktop has two network ports. I know what you're thinking, I'm a very lucky boy. I don't mean to boast, but I also have a cheapy little access point. It can either extend wirelessly (at painfully slow speeds) or I can plug in an ethernet cable and run at 150mpbs. I'd prefer the second :)
What I would like to do is plug the access port into eth1 and bridge eth1 to the network eth0 is connected to, without interfering my desktop's connection on eth0.
I'm not sure if this is possible but if it is, please give me a kick in the right direction.
