Recently purchased Samsung BDP 1600 blueray player and everyone local is out of the the link stick (and way over priced!) I read about using a wireless game adapter in another thread and wanted to know if anyone had used one and if it worked. Would love it if I could wire both TV (6000 series) and player together with this system. Thanks

Find yourself a Router that is DD-WRT compatible and use it as a Wireless Bridge

Thanks....I figured this was the best route. Now on to my router search!

Found this router: ZyXEL P330W 802.11g Wireless Router (Buy.com) $33 an earlier post said this router is able to be set in bridge mode without flashing dd wrt. Has 4 ports.

Anyone with thoughts?

The Rosewill RNX-N1 USB adapter will apparently work.

Here's [redflagdeals.com] a discussion.

The Rosewill RNX-N1 is not the only alternative to the Linkstick for Samsung devices, it's just the easiest to find and often on sale.

Here are other possibilities:

The important thing that determines compatibility is that the adapter must be Ralink RT2870 based and it must have the generic Ralink Vendor and Device ID: 148f:2870

The RT2870 MAC/BB chip is paired with either a RT2820 for single band devices or a RT2850 for dual band devices.
