I purchased a wireless access point to be able to connect an Xbox 360 to my wireless router which is not in the same room. I would like to connect more than one wired device to this Access Point. Will I be able to connect a wired switch to the one ethernet port on the back of the Access Point in order to make more than one connection to my wireless network?

Access Points, at least all the ones I've seen and worked with, have only a single network (RJ-45) connection on them. Since you need to use that to plug the AP into your network in order to activiate it and have it work as an AP, there's no way to plug something else into it.

If you however, have an AP with more than one RJ-45 connector on it, I'd love to know the make/model. I might have a use for that myself.

I plan on using the access point as a wireless bridge in order to connect my wired xbox 360 to the wireless network. Do you think that I can still connect a switch to that end before the xbox 360?
