It has already been mentioned that devices like the WET11 can do exactly
this.  I'd also mention that the WRT-54G can do this.  I don't remember if
it's in the stock firmware, or only add-on firmware, but I have done this.
You go into the wireless setup and say "Client" mode, give it ESSID and
other wireless settings, and then it allows you to connect ethernet devices
to it, which get bridged to the wireless network.
