    Hi all.
    I have searched High and low but cannot find the answer to my home network problem.

    Equipment I have to hand:
    2 X befw11s4 4 port wireless router
    1 X Wap11
    2 X broadband routers (4 port)
    2 X origo routers

    Equipment I want to set up:
    Office:
    2 PCs
    Internet Connection

    Living Room
    Xbox

    Roaming:
    PSP

    All I want to do is connect a wireless router to the Xbox in the living room to connect to the Office interent connection.

    Also, if possible connect to the office router to go online with the PSP

    what do I need to do. I've heard about bridging, but will this work for me using the linksys routers?

    Many thanks for any help

    Hi!

    I would use the BEF-W11S4 as the Internet edge and set that up in the office. Connect the 2 PCs to it and connect it to the cable or DSL modem.

    Then, set up the WAP11 on the latest firmware and configure it o be an access point client. Here, it should become a client for the 'W11S4 and should be installed in the living room. Then connect the XBox to the WAP11's LAN socket.

    All should use the highest-level security (WEP or WPA) available and use a site-unique SSID. The PSP then should find the SSID and work off the 'W11S4.

    With regards,

    Simon Mackay
