Wireless Bridge - Preferably USB powered
Does anyone have going spare, or can anyone recommend, a wireless bridge that's preferably USB powered? Not looking to spend a fortunate.

Define wireless bridge, as the USB part is confusing me. Wireless bridge to me is an access point which connects to another access point and connects a local LAN to the distant LAN via the 2 bridge devices.
A USB wireless device is simply a wireless adapter?

Use the Netgear WNCE2001
It's definately the dogs...
Universal, works with any ethernet enabled device, I use mine to connect my Ethernet enabled Freesat box to connect to iPlayer over the wireless LAN but I have used them on Printers, Cameras and Games Consoles.
It has USB power as well as an AC adaptor and its tiny. It also has push N connect so if you have a push N connect router it takes seconds to set it up.
You can find them online for less than £40

That's the one, the price looks reasonable too.
The last ones I bought were £36 +vat and delivery so that looks pretty good.
I love the negative feedback on Amazon from one student that tried to plug it into their college network and it didn't work.....
Then blames Netgear support for not being able to help them... Pleb!

How many USB ports are used to power it?

Just one, it comes with a USB to micro dc plug and 13a mains adapter. Use whatever suits your needs.
