Hope someone can help with a Mac question as I'm not familiar with Mac's at all.

I've got a friend who has a 1x Mac and 1x PC. They have a Wireless Router (D-Link G604T) connected via LAN cable to the mac. They have a PC in another room which they wish to access the wireless network that I've setup for them. They own a Mac Airport device. Can I use this Mac Airport device via a LAN cable to the PC and connect to the wireless network?

Thanks for help in advance.

As long as the PC has wireless then yes. Airports are just an access point and I have setup PC's accessing wireless via Airport.

Re read your post and I now think you are asking if you can use the Airport device to bridge to your D-link. This I am not sure of as never tried with Airport. I have done with other access points but were purchsed for this purpose and designed to do so. Cheapest option would be to buy a USB wireless device for the P if the airport will not work.

Yeah, I want to use the Airport device as the PC's wireless network card to connect to the wireless LAN on the D-Link.......
