    Today i bought a belkin Wireless Network access point and an Ethernet bridge.

    I have a Thompson Speedtouch router already so I thought (after shop advice!!) Plug in WAP to Router then plug bridge into XBOX hey presto....

    NO!!

    I have plugged my WAP into the router and done nothing - I understand I must then plug Bridge into PC through network connection to get the WAP and Bridge to talk then I can plug into XBOX, the problem is I don't have Network card.

    I am going to buy a network card tomorrow (PCWorld!) dii I have to get anything special?

    Once I have set-up, plugged in and matched together is there anything else or not I have to do?

    This is frustrating and I suppose I just need a step by step guide , can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Bob

    Theres always the official site here.

    This site isn't specifically about wireless, but it helps clear up some of the networking terminology used (it got me up and running!). Hope that helps!
