    Hi Folks,

    My router is wireless equiped and as such i want to get a wireless
    bridge so i can connect a PS2 to the net via wireless.
    It would seem that the best way to do this is using a wireless bridge to
    connect to the PS2 such as the Netgear ME101.
    My question is this though - does the wireless bridge require an ip
    address, or does it simply use the ip address assigned to the PS2
    network adaptor ?
    If it does need a seperate address then i would imagine the routing
    becomes very awkward as you are going to have two devices (wireless
    router and PS2) on the same subnet seperated by another device (wireless
    bridge).
    Reason im asking is that im using a small public ip range and have no
    spare ip's so if i need to give the bridge its own ip as well as having
    one allocated to the PS2 im gonna be stuck !

    Any advice appreciated from someone who has setup something like this
    before.

    Regards,

    Andy.
