    I dont like wasting anyones time so heres my problem.
    I have a wireless router which i want to connect to my IPTV BOX which i have with my 55 inch LCD. However the IPTV BOX doesnt have a wireless connection and it needs a cable which i cant use since the router is 3 rooms away.
    Any way i can make it work ? I was thinking about an adapter that can go behind the IPTV BOX and make it wireless but i dont know if that exists.
    Ideas guys ?

    Where do you live? Sounds like you need a wireless bridge - they're essentially wireless adaptors that plug into a standard network port.

    Here's a couple in the UK:

    I know some brands let you link two separate routers (such as Belkin) but those two devices should do what you want.

    Edit: you could even try powerline adaptors, but I think that would work out slower and more expensive.

    Exactly what i need thanks.
    However 60-80euros aint cheap so ill search for something cheaper. Besides its an IPTV BOX so nothing too special as gaming or so.
