Modem to PS3 wirelessly; PS3 to HR22 wired?
Posted 19 March 2009 - 02:16 PM
I have a PS3 connected wirelessly. I haven't sprung for a bridge/adapter nor a router to DD-WRT yet. Can I take an ethernet cable and connect it from my PS3 to my HR22 which is 2 feet away? I know the HR22 has a daisy chain but is ethernet treated as strictly in or out? Is the back of the PS3 in only?

The HR22 includes a bridge and the PS3 does not. You might be able to daisy chain if you connect the wireless adapter to the HR22 but no promises.
Neither is the HR22 but it can do it.

I have the same equipment (PS3 and HR22) in our family room.
PS3 is hooked up to my home secure wireless network.
I have two HR22's and am looking for the least expensive way to use a wireless hook up and receive DTV Video on Demand.

The link refers to wireless routers. I'm assuming there is a difference (that a router can not be used as an access point).
I've also read about wireless bridges, wireless music bridges, print servers, along with access points and gaming adapters.
Can you be more specific on the equipment you have and/or which piece you are referring to?
I'm trying to school myself on the subject.

I am using a Buffalo WHR-HP-G54 ( a full-fledged router) that I have flashed with dd-wrt ( open source firmware that gives you a lot of options to customize) and use it in whats called "Wireless Repeater bridge". I have another wireless router WHR-G125 which is connected to my cable modem, and serves as the main AP. What "Wireless Repeater bridge" means is that it allows devices hooked into its wired ports to bridge with the network on the other side of the HP-G54 ( so all devices on the g125, hp-g54, and any wireless clients connected to them will all appear as if on one network), and also repeats the wireless signal from the main Access Point (G125). The good thing about the repeater is that now you have extended the signal of your wireless network and your laptop for example can seamless connect to the closest wireless repeater. I have the HR20, PS3, HTPC then wired into the HP-G54.
Wrt what device to buy, At the cheap enough prices of the routers today, I will suggest to always get a router, because even with the stock firmware that comes with them, I think most current routers will let you set it up as a "wireless bridge" at the least, even if it doesn't give you the repeater functionality. And this way you always have an extra router in case your main one goes bad. I have 2 HR-20s in 2 different rooms, and each one's connected to a HP-G54 as mentioned above.
Hopefully that was more clearer. I may not be 100% correct with my terms above and what they mean, but I think they are practically close enough for the common use case.
