Bridge network interfaces?

    Connected to a LAN via an internal wireless 802.11 card a Windows Vista
    Basic machine is using its internal 10/100BaseT NIC to connect to a network
    multi-function device using a CAT5 crossover cable.

    The Windows Vista Basic machine communicates perfectly with the
    multi-function device but now I would like other clients on the wireless
    network to also be able to connect to the network multi-function device.

    Is there anything Windows Vista Basic can do to bridge the two network
    interfaces to eliminate static routes at the default gateway of the LAN (I
    have a PIX 501 gateway and it does not route).

    My WiFi Access Points are in bridge mode so I cannot put a route in there.

    Perhaps I could put the static route in each Windows client? Hmmm. I have
    not done that since Windows NT.

    Can someone give me a suggestion?

    Doh. Vista has the bridge feature built it. Works great.
    And the PIX can add routes for inside networks.
