will this act like a range extender and give a network connection to my xbox using the ethernet cable/port?

Yes, this lets you bring your xBox onto the wireless network. Link with PDF guide

If you mean connect it to your xbox's ethernet port, then nah, it goes the other way. Connects to your existing router via ethernet and lets wireless things connect to it.

For example. if you've got thick walls/floors, you could run an ethernet cable upstairs, use the router's built-in wi-fi downstairs, and plug this extender in upstairs, giving you wireless up there too.

If you are not bothered about powering the Wireless Bridge from USB, the above F5D7130 V.2 will do the job nicely.

Good find. It'll do everything mentioned, inlcuding xbox ethernet bridge to avoid having to trail a wire.

Dealextreme might be worth a look when it comes back. Site's down just now apparently.

It's possible to use a router that you can use openwrt on, and i guess maybe one you can use the dgteam firmware on. If you have one of those or can get one cheapish, then you'll have the advantage of being able to connect more than one ethernet device to your wireless network.

Agreed, the open source firmwares are awesome.

Unfortunately it's all too complicated for the average person, that just wants to get online.

This one can act as a full network bridge, just add a £8 network hub.

I got a power point next to the xbox. im confused nw! Will i be able to plug this in by the xbox, connect it to my wireless network and run a ethernet cable from it to my xbox to get on live? If it does £15 seem awful cheap when comparing it to the price of the microsoft 360 wireless adaptor.

Read this, should clarify it.

I was really tempted by this, but Opera reports that the site is not secure when I get to the payment details screen?
#15
you guys are all confusing one another. Simple answer is this. Buy this, and yes, you can connect your 360 to it via ethernet, and it will act like a wireless reciever, except it will also have the added benefit of also extending wireless range. It works both ways. it recieves wifi and pumps it out again.

I'm looking into buying one for the old xbox. I don't know if I can stream to xbmc as easy as I can to my 360 however :( Would love to stream mkv files.

There is a problem sending you your confirmation email of your order, but your order has been placed on the system and will be delivered to you.

... whatever that means.

It's coming though apparently according to the 'receipt & thankyou page' which I clicked on to. All seems fine, maybe I mistyped my e-mail (twice) :?

This is a s**t hot deal, unfortunately I cannot afford it at the moment.
#18
Are these alright or are they as crap as all the other Belkin wifi kit? Bought some homeplugs for £50 yesterday but if this works just as well it's probably a better purchase.
#19
Not as cheap but if you're looking for a very interesting WiFi router and the possibility of getting WiFi access when traveling and not familiar with FON then check out this link

I've had three of these and there crap, very unreliable. Lots of bad reviews on the net when I last looked, so for that reason its cold and I would reccomend people avoid this.

Sorry guys if this has been asked ..

I have a xbox 360, my wireless router is in the other room and can not reach the xbox. Can I use this to connect to my wireless?

I have used one of these with my Xbox 360 for almost 2 years with no problems. Brilliant bit of kit, I originally paid about £35! To those confused, you CAN plug your xbox into this via an ethernet cable to get wireless access to your existing wireless network.

I've got an existing belkin range extender (it's the F5D7132) which is a slightly different model to this - does anyone know if this can be used in the same way as my existing range extender (i've got another spot where i need extra)?

I have my XBMC modded Xbox right next to my 360. I have both machines plugged into a 4 port Buffalo ethernet bridge. I use my old Xbox all the time for watching DivX videos and DVDs despite having TVsersity configured for use with my 360. XBMC does a great job and is so customisable. I don't watch HD content so RGB scart works fine for me.

This belkin is a steal at under 15 quid! bought one to hook up XBMC for my dad.

The confusion is because there are lots of different functions you can have on your network.

Two of those are a Wireless Access Point and a Wireless Bridge. A wireless access point connects to your existing network and allows wireless clients (computers) to connect. A wireless bridge connects one section of a network to another.

To connect your xbox wirelessly a wireless access point functionality is no good to you, you want wireless bridge functionality.

As this is being advertised as a wireless access point then it presumably acts as a wireless access point, the confusion comes from whether it can act as a Wireless Bridge as well as it's got nothing to do with wireless access point functionality. However, home devices often integrate several functions into one box and from the comments in the thread this sounds like it will work as a wireless bridge as well as a wireless access point.

Do you know if has USB ports on it, I need something to turn my printer into a WIFI printer as am too stingy to buy a new one and it's a apin in the **** taking the laptop to the printer every time you want to print something, will this do the job ?

I bought one of these a while ago, and I cannot get it to work as a bridge for my Xbox. Tried researching on the net, but I think I must have confused it with the belkin wireless gaming bridge. If anyone knows how to configure this to work with an Xbox 360 connecting to a Linksys wireless router then post a link or pm me the instructions!

Avoid. Belkin routers are garbage compared to Netlink or Linksys ones.

The pdf talks about linking it to a belkin router, I want it to link to a linksys router. I can't do it following those instructions.

Tip:
Forget wireless, if you can't plug cat5 cables in, then buy a couple of Powerline ethernet adaptors - stick one in the router, one in the device you want to connect, turn on and you are AWAY! Even the 85mbs ones are a breath of fresh air compared to fiddling around trying to get quarter-decent performance on wifi.
There has been a couple of offers on this week to get you going -
OK they are more expensive than this... but a lot less bother too.

The reason they explain it using a Belkin router is because they make them and would like you to buy one of those as well.

Bridge mode will work with any router.
- connect the F5D7130 Access Point to your computer via a network cable
- set your own IP to 192.168.2.253
- use a web browser to connect to 192.168.2.254
- setup wireless ssid/channel/encryption type and key to that of your existing wireless router
- change from Access Point mode to Bridge mode

You can now connect your xBox360/PS2/computer to the F5D7130's network port.

Unlike a gaming bridge, which operates as a Wireless Client, this fully featured network bridge can cope with more than one device. Add a simple £8 network hub and you can bring more than 1 device onto the wireless network.

Hope this helps.

Agreed, Homeplugs all the way. Marvellous technology!

For online gaming Homeplugs provide a slightly lower latency than Wireless LAN (still worlds away from a CAT5 cable) and and a more stable (read continuous) connection.

This is for those wanting to spend as little money as possible.
