Supposedly the Netgear RT314 will do it.  $65 BIN on ebay.  

I hear that the directions for doing so are in the zylix manual.
apparently the rt314 is a rebadged zylix product.  I for get the
equivolent model, but I'm fairly certain that either geeks or rescue
archives would tell.

If I have to buy anything, I will buy such a router.  I was hoping to
make do with what I already owned.
