powerline adaptor



New Member
I have my cable modem and wireless router downstairs in the office. Upstairs the signal is week. I also am going to start watching unlimited netflix on my my Wii.

However, the wireless signal is weak up stairs.

These were the top rated powerline adapters on newegg.

NETGEAR XAVB101-100NAS Up to 200Mbps Powerline AV Ethernet Adapter Kit


That will get the netflix going. But I also want to boost my wireless signal upstairs.

What do I need a repeater? Wireless AP / Bridges?

So from the powerline adapter, I can use a cat5 cable to connect to this

D-Link DAP-1522 Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge/Access Point

This will transmit a wireless signal and I can plug the Wii into this.

Worried that I will already have a wireless router, then throw this into the mix that I will not be able to configure it.
