I have four old computers with no wifi capability for which I need to provide Internet access. There is no ethernet drop near them but there is strong wifi available. I want to repurpose an old router to connect the four computers to the ethernet ports on the back of the router. So I need to get the repurposed router to receive the wifi signal and, in effect, turn it into a
router switch. Is this called "bridging"? What is the term for what I want to do?
