I have a wired 4 port router upstairs in my house connecting 3 PCs to my cable modem. The router is a Linksys BEFSR41 (I think), it's was cheap when I got it 3 years ago. It's been very reliable, but it's pretty basic. I've got an XBox downstairs which I connect to LIVE with by running a 20m CAT5 cable from the router whenever I want to game. It's not actually very far to the router, less than 10m through a wooden floor, just I have to take the wire go via the staircase. It's a pain in the bum to hook up each time and it's a tripping hazard. I also want to put a PC next to the XBox to plug into my stereo. What's the best way to hook the XBox and the entertainment PC to my cable modem? I've read a lot of information on over many days, and I'm pretty confused. I am willing to try non-standard firmware, but I'd prefer it if it'd worth without. If I buy kit and then I can't get it working, I can't return it if it was never supposed to be able to function that way in the first place. Plans: Buy two WAP54Gs and a switch. Hook one AP to my router upstairs and the second AP to a switch. I'm pretty sure this will this work out of the box. Am I right? Same as plan 1 except buy a WRT54G instead of a WAP54G and the switch. I'd replace my existing router with a WRT54G and then bridge to a WAP54G downstairs, then I'd run the old wired router as a switch off the WAP54G to my XBox and Ent. PC. Is this possible out of the box or do I have to use non-Linksys firmware? Would this be a point-to-point connection only, or would I be able to run more wireless clients off of it at a later date? Buy 2 WRT54Gs. Is it possible to use WRT54Gs at both ends? I'd not need the router functions of the WRT54G downstairs and it'd involve less wires and plugs, a neater solution... if it works. Would I have to change the non-Linksys firmware to enable this feature? What are my chances of success? Would all the ports work on the 2nd WRT54G, or would I still need a switch to get more than one wired connection? Buy Buffalo. Buffalo have a wireless router and a wireless AP with 4 ports built in. It's work out of the box BUT they cost a bit more than Linksys here in the UK AND I'm worried about the signal as the Buffalos only have internal aerials AND I wouldn't get the nice toys in the non-standard firmware that I could get for the Linksys models. Buy Asus. They're dirt cheap and I think they will bridge using WDS. They also have USB ports, which is nice. However, I've heard they're a bit flakey and again I loose the firmware toys. The 'I give up' plan. Buy a wireless router, a wireless ethernet adaptor for the XBox and a USB/PCI wireless adaptor for the PC. This is the most expensive method and I'd prefer not to do it, but at least it'd work. Which do you think I should try and why?
