I picked this up last night. Mention the web price, and they will match it in the store.

If you've got an existing wireless router/AP, this works great as an Ethernet bridge.

I like it because it has 4 Ethernet ports, so I can plug the HR20 and Xbox 360 into one unit.

Also, with diplexed Cox Internet on one leg, downstream of a SWS-4 4-way splitter, using a SWS-2 2-way splitter, as a combiner.

Just picked up an Airlink AP431w multipurpose access point at Fry's for $27. Configured as an "AP Client" worked great for hooking up my HR20-700 on my existing wireless network. Runs WPA security fine as well. Didn't like the $80 cost of a Linksys WGA54G and have to downgrade to WEP security as well.

Me too, the one I mention in my OP is also WPA capable.

I originally hooked my hr20 up with a WGA54G, but like you I wanted more ports and I didn't like the idea of downgrading my wireless security. So instead I took my WGA back and picked up a WRT54G and flashed it with the DD-WRT 3rd party firmware. Took me an hour to do it all. Works great, only cost $49.99 and I have 2 more ports I can use.
