Welcome to the Wooting week!
The Motorola WE800G 802.11g Wireless Gaming Adapter/Ethernet Bridge is your fast and easy way to get cabled Ethernet appliances onto a Wifi Network. Plug it temporarily into your computer to program it, then plug it into your PS/2, Xbox, Internet-equipped refrigerator, Tivo, ReplayTV or printer—anything with an ethernet connection—and this becomes a wifi antenna for that device. Meanwhile, your device thinks it’s hardwired into the network, so it’s like a trip to the mini golf course: you won’t need any drivers.
What’s better, this smart little bugger makes transitions between two separate networks as seamless as a rubber miniskirt. For example, you could use it to connect to both your home and office networks. You know, if you had a job.
It’s all pretty user-friendly—and it’s Motorola, so you’ll have help if you need it. The quality of their support rivals that of something you’d find in the underwear drawer of Morganna “the Kissing Bandit.” (Not to jinx you, but we got through to a very knowledgable live human—or extremely convincing simulated human—in less than a minute each time we called.)
Though it would be handy if this bundle operated peer-to-peer with the USB adapter feeding the bridge, it will not, as far as we know. An existing Wireless Access Point (or one you buy elsewhere, or a WiFi router) will be necessary for network setup. If any nerd among you knows of a point-to-point solution, post it in our forum. It’ll be like untying the Gordian Knot! Or removing the Sword from the Stone! Except the reward will be much more modest: nothing.
Motorola WU830G USB 2.0 Adaptor:
This little thing-a-ma-jig makes wireless networking easier than ever. Just plug it directly into any available USB port on your desktop or laptop PC, and enjoy wireless networking.
On your 802.11g or 802.11b wireless home or small office network, multiple users can share a single broadband connection, files, a printer and more. (They can enjoy the excitement of real-time online gaming too!) It installs in just seconds, after which your momma will beam with pride. You were such a selfish child growing up! But look at how well you share now!

Its been awhile, how about a woot-off? I don’t need sleep one night this week.
I’ve been looking at wireless Ethernet bridges recently, and they usually go for more than this (even used on eBay). Plus you’re getting the USB wireless as a bonus…seems like a good buy to me.
is this still first page?
