I currently use a slinglink turbo powerline 4-port adapter for my DVRs and slingbox, but am not having good luck. are there multi-port gaming wireless adapters that would do the same job, or are they all 1 port?

I was lucky enough to get a Buffalo WLI-TX4-G54HP before a lawsuit stopped them from being manufactured. You might still find one on the Internet. It's worth searching for.

I have the same Buffalo unit and it's very nice. Anything heard concerning the lawsuit - the only thing I've heard is that it's been thrown out of court in Japan.

Now THAT sounds intriguing . . . :)

I have one too. Great little box. I only wish it was 802.11n compatible for more bandwidth, to better match my Apple Airport-based WLAN (two Airport Extreme n's and an Express n are my "backbone" so to speak).

From the Bullafo website http://www.buffalotech.com/products/wireless

Regrettably, the Court of Appeals has decided not to stay the injunction in the CSIRO v. Buffalo et al litigation during the appeal period. Although Buffalo is confident that the final decision in the appeal will be favorable and that the injunction will be lifted, Buffalo is presently unable to supply wireless LAN equipment compliant with IEEE 802.11a and 802.11g standards in the United States until that decision is issued.

If I had been paying attention at the time, I would have gotten a "Turbo g" router to match. For the sake of the OP, this wireless adapter has four ports.

Thanks for the info. Seems like Buffalo is getting shafted by the domestic courts!
Imagine that:(

That sounds suspicious, almost like a Tibber puzzle. I already have a WGA600N and will be needing another one after I get my 3rd HR2X on Sep. 16!:)

WGA600N only has one ethernet port...

Also, plugging a switch into that single port can cause network collisions as the IP addressing scheme is not passed through the port to the switch, if I remember correctly.

That could be a problem with a hub, but I haven't experienced it with a switch.

One effect of the Buffalo injunction was that I was able to sell one of mine on amazon.com for 50% more than I paid for it (I listed it for slightly less than others were asking and it went in a few days.)

Yes, it only has one port .. but if it's mainly for a DIRECTV receiver .. It's a good choice at this point.
