always do some sort of hardware bridging setup, but that won't  be 
cheap. Some of the new PowerLine A/V stuff actually looks pretty  
reasonable though...

Supposedly the Linksys WMP300N will work with linux and ndiswrapper at 
least from what I have read (pretty good combo deal at newegg right now).
I just ordered one today with a Linksys WRT330N router (Gigabit with 
wireless-N) and it should be here in 3-days.
I will update everyone on whether it works well or not.  Currently I 
have a D-link setup DI624 router from Verizon and a DWL-G122 USB stick 
and it is the absolute worst setup ever.  Constant reboots from the 
router and if the stick is running G it constantly dies, so I am hoping 
for the best out of this new setup.


Your friends are close to you. Keep them that way.
