Wireless point shared by all devices in room

by matthailey / December 25, 2008 7:28 AM PST


I have an XBox 360 and two computers that i want to be able to connect to my wireless router downstairs. I would like to hardwire all three devices to one point in the room which will have a wireless connection to the router - what would I need at this point? A wireless hub/bridge/access point..? (I'm not sure on the name of the device I'm needing!)

Any links to devices that could do this would be appreciated.

It's a bridge. The model I own (two of) and use is the Netgear wgps606. Mine were 25 bucks refurb. A little tough for some to setup but their return get them to me cheap.
