Yeah, think of a wireless ethernet bridge as a wireless network adapter that plugs into a wired network port.

If I'm not mistaken, he should be able to use his wireless router as a bridge, no?

He could if his WAN connection were wired, but he is getting his internet connection wirelessly from his neighbor. Even though his router is wireless, he still needs a wired connection to the WAN in order to get a connection to route, correct?
