If your home entertainment system is anything like mine with a PS3, Xbox, satellite box and a Wii all vying for wireless or needing wired LAN connections actually getting them connected can be a pain. Despite the fact that my PS3 and the Wii have built-in wireless connectivity, they can’t run at 802.11n speeds meaning none of my other devices like computers can either.
D-Link has a solution to the problem, of running wires to your electronics and slow internal Wi-Fi adapters. It is now shipping its D-Link Xtreme N Duo Wireless Bridge. The device is an 802.11n compliant wireless access point/ bridge that has four LAN jacks on it to allow you to connect devices that lack built-in Wi-Fi.
The bridge has selectable 2.4GHz or 5GHz technology and can connect to slower 802.11g networks as well. The DAP-1522 is available now for $119.99. That makes it roughly twice the price of the wireless adapter for the Xbox, but you can connect four items wirelessly rather than only the Xbox.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
