How to use a Belkin Universal Range Extender as an access point

I was given one of these and for the life of me couldn't get it to work. Adding security to the device would cause the web management page to crash and make the device unconfigurable. I discovered that though the security on the belkin causes problems the MAC address rules do. So if you've got the same problem leave the device as an unsecured access point and define your MAC rules. Worked first time.

Streaming video onto your iphone or psp

For psp you'll need custom firmware, one that'll run 1.5 homebrew - run over to pimpstreamer and get going. You'll have to muck about with the conversion rates if your wifi is a little bit slacky.

For iphone I'll recommend Air Video. Works a treat and you won't have to convert all your nice avi files. It'll convert on the fly - on a dual core machine or higher. Runs fine with my little HP 3020 Slimline PC and that's something like a AMD x2 3800+ if memory serves me right.
