      Which product do I need please? Access point to DG834GT.

      I've got a DG834GT supporting:
      2 wired PCs
      1 wireless Wii
      1 wireless slimserver
      1 wireless PC (music server)

      Question:
      I want to add two more wired PC to my network which unfortunately are located away from the DG834GT. These must be wired connections and routing CAT5 around the house is not possible.

      Do Netgear make a product which can connect wirelessly to my existing wireless network, provided by the DG834GT, and allow wired connections into it? Looking through the Netgear website suggests the WGE111 is suitable but alas only provides one connection.

      Ta.

      Have a look at a wireless bridge (surely doesn't have to be Netgear, but it may be easier). Also consider Internet Connection Sharing (built into Windows) as a means of linking a computer to the internet via ethernet to another computer which is already talking to the router.

      Generally, though, the advice is that you can best extend your DG834GT's wireless reach by running a long ethernet cable from it to another wireless router. You may have to alter the IP address and DHCP on the second router.

      Because the second router doesn't have an ADSL connection, the brand, or buying an ex-ISP model matters little -- so car boot sale prices apply.

      Re: Which product do I need please? Access point to DG834GT.

      I don't want to extend the wireless reach of the DG834GT as such..

      As above, I have two machines which will only work with wired connections (basically Linux boxes). I want these to be on the same network as all my other stuff. Running ethernet between where the Linux boxes are and the DG834GT is not an option

      Any other ideas?

      the homeplug system is an option, however it is fairly expensive
