    Wireless Query

    I have an Internet Ready telly, blu-ray and media player thingy and was wondering if I could connect them all to the internet using a wireless router?
    I have my VM feeding in upstairs, with a Netgear wireless router attached (i forget the model number but it's the one that VM send you) and I have a spare non-VM wireless router as well as a spare dg834. My question is, could I put one of the spare routers downstairs to receive the signal from upstairs, then plug the 3 downstairs boxes into that router?
    If not, what would I need in order to be able to do it? The less extra boxes the better...

    Right, I think I can see kind of what I want, but all the bridges seem to only have 1 LAN. Are there any Wireless Bridges with 4 LAN ports?

    Don't get too hung up on finding a bridge with 4 ports you can just but a cheap ethernet switch and use that to give you the number of ports you need.
