I confirmed that the one I have is a TP-Link TL-WA801ND and I know for a fact that it supports wireless to wired bridge (client) mode because I used it like that for a while.

Pretty much any MikroTik router that has wifi can do this.  They make a couple that can be powered from DC or by 5V USB and are a small as a mouse.

Different units allow you different features. I have 3 devices I put openwrt on and it allows you to do pretty much whatever you want. If you literally want to bridge a physical network from a wireless server, that may or may not be doable, but there may be some MAC issues because the wireless client has a single MAC.
