Most APs that support OpenWrt or DDwrt can be turned into bridges.  You
just change the wireless mode to join/client mode and have it connect to
your SSID.  Then you need to change the router's IP address to something
other than the default (otherwise you'll not be able to reach it later),
and then disable DHCP.  Now it's a bridge.

I've done this on old linksys Wrt54GLs many times and I know you can do
it on others.
