    Why not just use a wireless game adapter:

      Is that "game adaptor" different than a generic 802.11 bridge? I see these game adaptors marketed separately from bridges and all the WiFi guys charge more for the bridges.

        I was looking for setting up a media center pc and using a device like that instead of runnign wires etc. This way I could get a 4 port hub ready to go where ever I want.

        Also, if one decides to move the PC to another corner because of it beign loud or not pleasing to the eye etc etc then one can move it easily.

        I am not sure on the quality and line noise. Knowing my luck it won't work.

          I have a media center PC - I simply plugged in a USB extension cable (5 ft) and into that I plugged a $25 USB WiFi 802.11g dongle. I put this up high and out of sight behind the cabinet. Runs 54Mbps to my WiFi router for SageTV driving the TV and for Sage-client PCs on my LAN.

          I didn't need multiple LAN ports.

          This device is cheaper than a WiFi bridge + an Ethernet Switch for more ports. But ONLY if it really is a transparent bridge+switch. Though there are no examples in the reference manual of connecting other than a game box - e.g., a network camera - it seems like it would work by what I read.

          I have a network camera whose ethernet port connects to a Linksys WET11 bridge which is an 802.11b bridge with one ethernet port. I use static IPs. The bridge has a static IP but this is just for administrative purposes.
