Cheap wireless bridge with WPA?

Here's the situation:

I've got a couple of computers out in a workshop that I need networked. However, I can't run cable or fiber to them. What I want to do is use two wireless bridges to extend our ethernet network over to that shop. Nothing fancy: just a simple point-to-point bridge secured with WPA-PSK.

My question is:

What wireless G bridges (or APs that can operate in bridged mode) definitely support WPA or WPA2 PSK encryption in bridged mode? Browsing through some Newegg reviews (yes, I know) has me a little concerned that of some bridges might only support WEP; documentation and manuals rarely make it clear whether WPA works in bridged mode.

Thanks for your help!

From my research, it looks like WPA-PSK might work in bridging mode on the Linksys WAP54G. Does anybody have experience with bridging two of these together?

I have a Buffalo WHR-G54S flashed with DD-WRT firmware acting as a bridge with WPA just fine. Hasn't failed me in the last 4 months so far.
