Hi all. I have a D-Link DI-514 (wireless router) working great in my house. I am about to get an Xbox 360 and want the Xbox Live. However I do not want to spend £60 on the Xbox adaptor. Nor do I want a massive wire (three stories high) going right through my house. Is there a device that will pick up my wireless connection upstairs and be able to output it to a standard ethernet cable.

WIRELESS ROUTER ----> WIRELESS DEVICE ----> CABLE ----> XBOX

Thanks all, hope my question makes sense :D

just because you're cheap doesn't mean you're automagically going to get something that does what you want.
