    Hello,

    I'm looking for some cheap device. Basically my friend has access to wireless network so he can only us it (not change anything). He has two devices with Ethernet ports. The question is how he can connect these two devices to this wireless network.
    As far as I know he will need some wireless bridge as Access point works the way around unless both were configured in bridge mode?
    Would you recommend some simple solution, maybe some links on Maplin's website or something.

    Yes, I was thinking about this but it's possible only on one of them., the second device has no USB ports.

    Basically it's a PC and some TV Box (with no USB ports) so I was thinking about Wireless bridge so he could connect both of them at once.

    Hi,

    It looks like the router with client mode will be good for this solution. Could you recommend some models with client mode. I found this one but it has only one Ethernet port:
