    I dont understand this, i want to hook my ps2 up to my lan, so i thought id get a wireless bridge/repeater, but everything i seem to find online is so very very expensive.

    Why dont i just buy another router and use it as a bridge?

    If i remember correctly a bridge would be used if you wanted to cut out certain comps from the LAN (bypass them)- so i dont think you need one, go for somthing cheaper

    So, what should I buy? A wirless repeater? How much do you think that would cost? Or, should I just get another wireless switch/router? What do you think would be the cheapest solution? I just want to connect to the router upstairs from downstairs.
