      Wireless Bridge or Extender to connect multiple devices ??

      Hi,

      I have my sky router downstairs (Sagem F@ST2504) and need a connection upstairs for a xbox 360, Network-attached storage (NAS) and a PC to the internet/network.

      i was concidering getting either a Netgear WN2000RPT Universal Wireless Range Extender (300Mbps)
      or
      TRENDnet TEW-640MB 4-Port Wireless-N Ethernet Bridge (300Mbps).

      am i right in thinking any of these 2 devices would work?

      also can anyone recommend any of these devices? i'm leaning towards the TRENDnet one as i've read that the Netgear ones keep droping the internet connection and you have to manually restart it each time.

      Either of these would do, but you should consider Homeplugs. These are generally more efficient than wireless which can be subject to all kinds on interference. This will give you an idea of what they are. - Homeplug | Broadbandbuyer.co.uk

      You can fit a switch at the 'slave' end which you can plug in multiple devices, including a wireless range extender if you wish..
