I have Virgin broadband coming into a modem and then cabled to my PC. Will this when fitted between the modem and PC allow my Wii and XBox to connect wirelessly to the appropriate internet services whilst remain with the wired connection to my PC?

 Upgrade the Firmware by Stu Collier

Nice design, easy to setup.

Easy web interface (not unsimilar to the Netgear menus)

Answer by paulc on Sunday, May 4, 2008
You would need to have a wireless adaptor on your xbox. You cannot wire this to your xbox and connect wirelessly to another router.

Question  Compatibility by Ali

Is this product compatible with cable broadbands in the UK like Virgin Media or NTL?
