Me too, and I have a PS3 and the HR20 connected to it too. I liked it so much I replace my Dlink router with the Buffalo WHR-HP-G54. These two buffalo devices have a super connection. With the Dlink I could not watch a video from a PC without stuttering (this is using the PS3). Now it's steady as a rock.

I just use the ethernet converter, which connects wirelessly to my Airport Express router.
