So im looking at this D-Link DAP-1522...thinking perhaps that one or something similar to it. I really only need one device to connect which is the blu-ray. It will only receive internet connection through an Ethernet wire. So as i only need one device to connect i could go with the cheaper item. so heres my question, if i go to this D-link one can i connect all of my units (XBOX, CPU, Laptop, Wii, Blu-ray, and TV) to this device (or something similar) Via my wireless router? if so would it possibly increase my internet speed because im wired (so to speak) or would it slow it down as i might be pulling internet usage from one "port" from my wireless to support multiple devices? Would there be any advantage buying a device that supports multiple devices?
The reason why im thinking about this thing is i live in a basement suite, internet shared with the upstairs. They also run multiple devices off the wireless router. would this unit, like the d-link give me privacy? prevent them from seeing my CPU. I have files shared on my CPU that i dont really want others to see except my wife who access them from her laptop but they are available to anyone on the network. the other option that i like is the printer. she runs a newer version of windows and programs that i dont run so she can only print if she connects to the printer. A router or "bridging device" might help, not that its a big deal.
