    I'm finally ready to network my HR20 and besides I want to be all ready to go for VOD.

    What do I need?

    I have a U.S. Robotics MAXg Router and I just bought a Linksys Wireless-G USB Adapter.

    If I hook the adapter to my HR20, is this all I need to do?

    Please help! I'm not going to open the box until I'm sure that I bought the right Adapter. If not I'll bring it back and buy the correct one.

    As always thanks in advance!

    Glad you didn;t open the box.
    Where did you get it?

    I'm sure glad I asked and thanks for the response!
    I bought it at Best Buy $49.99. I'll return it tomorrow.

    Those wireless bridge products are really over priced. If you are comfortable doing a little technical work, you can do the following:
    -Get a Buffalo WHR-G125 wirelss router from Frys (or outpost.com) for $37
    -Then flash with DD-WRT.
    -Set to Client Bridge mode.

    Then you have a wireless bridge that you can connect up to 4 devices to. This is what I have running in my living room with the HR20 and Xbox connected.
