wireless bridge

Specs: Windows XP sp3, 1.8 hz/2gb
i have 4 computers hooked up on my linksys
router "wrt110", 3 ports are taken up directly through a
lan and the 4th port is hooked up to a linksys
5 port switch. I need more than the 4 ports on the router. I just installed digital telephone service and since then, I have had nothing but
trouble with my network.I was having
connection problems from day 1 after installing
the phone service. Do you think that this could
be due to installing this digital service? Also, I
am trying to install a "slingbox" for remote tv
viewing but the location of the slingbox has no
direct ethernet close by. I have no alternative
location but to set it up near my directTV
receiver next to my television. I was told by
slingmedia that I could use a wireless bridge
to solve that problem. Before I purchase a
bridge, it is quite costly, does anyone have
any advice on the workabilty of this setup?
Does anyone have an alternative means of
getting ethernet hookup to the slingbox than
the one stated? I need a physical ethernet
hooked up into the slingbox in order for it to
work properly. Thanks for any and all
suggestions to my situation. Thanks

What kind of network trouble are you having?

Having an idea of what type of trouble you're having would make diagnosing the problem significantly easier.

Did they tell you that you could connect wirelessly to this slingbox? Regardless, all you need is a wireless AP to create a wireless network. Plug it into a LAN port on your router, or a port on your switch and configure the wireless network should be all you need to do.

If you're running out of ports on the switch, or LAN ports on the router, you could always buy a wireless router and use it like an AP (ie: shutoff DHCP and NAT)
