Airport Express bridge with Sympatico Wireless router?

I essentially want to hook up my old iMac G4 to an Airport Express via ethernet and bridge with my wireless router providing internet access.

I think this is possible with some Linksys routers, but I don't know if it'll work with Bell Sympatico's router is unbranded.

The Airport Express and Extreme allow you to create a Wireless Distribution System (WDS). Check out if your other can do it too. Otherwise, I _think_ you can join the network and just bridge the connection, not sure.

Thanks...I read about WDS on Apple's discussion forums, but wondered if it had to work with an Apple based product i.e. Airport Extreme.
