Wireless Bridge w/Gigabit Ethernet

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey all,
Got the wireless router in the cupboard and it can't move and at this point can't pull cable through the house.

Have two computers that need to be connected via CAT6 and also get an internet connection from the wireless router in the cupboard.

Was looking at the following options:

TRENDnetTEW-680MB
Buffalo - any of the three on the right of the chart

Any recommendations on a wireless bridger / router (with bridge mode) with gigabit ethernet (4 or more ports)?

First off your killing that router with no ventilation, it's going to overheat and start dropping wireless connections.

I personally use netgear 3500L flashed with dd-wrt for better preformance and signal strength. I would look for any router that can be flashed with 3rd party firmware as the stock firmware is ok at best but firmware like dd-wrt and tomato opens up ton's more options for tweaking and QoS.

I should have clarified, by cupboard I mean the laundry room, which has sufficient ventilation.
