    Thought I would share this useful info with the great people of GBAtemp.
    On the weekend I got to tinker with the Asus WL-520GC WiFi router with the plan of making a wireless bridge for my 360.
    Well to my surprise it was a relatively easy task. I intended to devote a whole day to working it out but instead it only took 10 mins of config with the default firmware straight from the box to have it connecting to my Linksys WAP54G.
    The best part about this, for Australians on the east coast and in SA, is that the router is available from MSY Technology for just $45.
    For those who don't know of MSY its a computer shop thats all about low prices.
    The MSY website is http://www.msy.com.au
    Not sure how many will find it useful but I'm sure there are alot of people who didn't want to spend the ridiculous amount of money Micro$oft want for the official WiFi adaptor

    Yes it certainly is...too bad they dont sell in Australia.
    Plus the need to do the firmware flash may put less technologically minded people off it.
