Wireless Bridging? Powerline Networking?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
How does this work, I currently have a netgear CG814W in my office but I have my 360 in the living room and instead of adding wires, Id like to know about bridging, my connection gets lost and I only get 1 bar to 2 on my 360. Id like to know how to setup where it gets me the best connection or should I go for powerline networking instead?

you can get a linksys wrt54 for $58 flash it with DD-WRT firmware and bridge the wireless connections to your netgear router. You can use the linksys as a direct connect also for other PC's in the area if they dont have wireless either.

IMO the best bet is an el-cheapo router (the WRT54G/GS/GL family routers are an easy, cheap, choice) with a custom firmware (DD-WRT was mentioned and I support that). However for the X-Box to properly function I believe you'll have to setup the router using Client Bridge Mode (DD-WRT operating mode), where the router connects to a wireless, does not re-transmit a wireless signal and instead it bridges it's LAN ports to the wireless network, therefore any device wired to the router will be able to communicate as if on wireless.

I believe this is what you wanted to ask about in the PM
