Ethernet Wired to Wireless Adapter

Here's a network connectivity question we get a lot.
"How do I convert my regular Ethernet connected device into a wireless Ethernet device?"
Many people have Ethernet equipped Game Consoles, Blu Ray Players, or components that are not computers and have no way to add on a PCI slot card, PC Card or express card in order to add a wireless network adapter. All those newfangled USB connections on Game consoles, Media Extenders and the like cannot accept a USB to Ethernet adapter since they have no way to load a driver on them. You have to go with something proprietary if one is even available.

Well, here's one solution. An Ethernet to Wireless bridge, that is easy to set up and use. It's also small and easy to find a place for. It's called the AeroPad Mini.

Here's the manufacturers blurb:
"AeroPad Mini is extraordinary in that it does not require drivers to function and is compatible with Mac OS 9.x, 10.x, Windows 98/ME/2000/XP, Linux, as well as XBox, PS2, or Tivo. AeroPad offers genuine cross-platform compatibility.
The AeroPad Mini lets you breathe new life in your older Mac models such as iBooks, G3's, iMacs, and any computer that do not have a 802.11g wireless solution available to them (e.g. no AirPort Card slot, no AirPort Extreme slot, no PCMCIA card slot, or no PCI slot. Now these computers can be placed anywhere without the hassle of running long cables.
AeroPad Mini spares the tedium of setting up cables or opening up the computer to insert a networking card.
The AeroPad Mini has also been redesigned to be small and portable, and perfect for users on the go. AeroPad Mini is USB powered so you will never have to worry about being near an outlet, this is truly wireless computing at its best. Small size doesn't mean AeroPad Mini comes in a compromise. Zipping at 802.11g 54Mbps speeds, it is small yet cutting-edge."

  1. The great thing about a 'Wireless to Ethernet Adapter' is that it can be attached to nearly any device with an ethernet port to make it wireless, such a printer or a game console. Add it to an ethernet hub and make multiple machines wireless.The output power of our standard Ethernet Adapter your range will be substantially greater using a high power bridge.
