A friend of mine is trying to get his internet connection to his media room. His router is in the laundry room (large room, well ventilated) & he is using wireless for the pc's & cell phones. He wants internet for his TV (for firmware, & such), for his DirecTV box (for VOD, etc), & for his Xbox or something. Anyway, his media room is not wired for internet & he would prefer not to run cable. He wants to know if there is anything that would pick up the wireless signal from the router & pass it through using a wired connection. This would be kind of the reverse of wireless. He wants to have something that can get the wireless signal & he can plug into it with wires for his equipment. He doesn't want to buy wireless adaptors for the TV, D* box, etc. Is there any such thing? I'm thinking no.
