Ok so i have this which is hooked up to my ps3 (no wifi, but backs compatibility) and now since im awaiting my 360 to arive, i want to use that with both devices. Will something like this work if only one unit is using the web at a time?

No, you need a network switch.

The best option would to buy a Linksys WRT54GL and use a third party firmware that support being a wireless bridge (ddwrt) and using that.

This way you have a bridge (like you linked) and an integrated 4 port switch.


Let's break something.
Those look like adapters to run two network connections through a single Cat-5 cable... Two connections go in one end, a single cable connects the two, and two network connections come out the other end.

They make these adapters so that you can run two devices on a single (presumably already run) network cable... It works because in a standard 100mb or 10mb network connection you only actually use two pairs (out of 4 pairs in a cable), so one of the incoming network connections is switched over to the unused pairs of the single existing cat-5 cable.

These won't work with Power Over Ethernet, or Gigabit Ethernet.

But no... unfortunately you CAN'T use them as you stated.

I'll second Admiral Michaels advice: Wrt54GL (Or V4 or earlier Wrt54G) with custom firmware.

I use Talisman from Sveasoft... lots of options, easy to setup and configure. Not sure where the other firmwares are at these days... haven't looked into them for some time.

Just re-read the first post and realised you already have the Belkin bridge. So just get a cheap 5 port switch and you're good to go.

If you don't want the extra hardware around then get the Linksys router.
