I unplugged the wl-330g, turning it off.  then I plugged its power
cable in and connected it to the PAP2 with a crossover cable. (it has
a power cord and ethernet jack, seperate.)  I played around with the
squence, trying the PAP2 with power first and so on, plugging in the
crossover cable before the wl-330g's power cable, etc.  the phone was
always plugged in.  I used the phone not long ago, so I "know" that
the phone works ;)

the best I could get were some pretty lights from the PAP2, then a
blinking, intermittent light.  no dial-tone from the phone.

this setup is premised on the wl-330g's ability to renegotiate the MAC
on the fly?  I don't think it's that smart.  I don't have the source,
but I looked into this previously.
