    Hey guys. I'm in need of a wireless bridge setup in order to connect at least two devices to my network.

    I'm thinking I'll need a bridge and a switch or hub, but if anyone has any suggestions I'm all ears.

    Can anyone suggest a relatively inexpensive setup the would work well?

    Thanks
    Fergal

    You will find that it is possible to use bridge mode in some WAPs (wireless access points) and many have built in switches too. However, i would recommend that you use two devices that are from the same manufacturer, if you expect them to play well together 8)

    The Wireless point I have at the moment is a netgear. However I cant seem to see any of their products with both a wireless connection and a switch (unless im just being blind).

    Oh, wait, theres the WGPS606. It seems to be designed as a print server, but I could probably just ignore that and use it to suit my needs?

    Actually, I decided to go for this in the end. The Powerline products are supposed to be pretty good, and since I only have a need for four devices, this seems like an ideal setup.
