Question Simple question regarding wireless networks


Just another quick question that I can use some help on.
I just moved into an apartment near school, which receives the school's wireless network.

I, however, have a couple of devices (Xbox 360, laptop) that I'd like to connect via an ethernet port. I know that wireless options ARE available, but I'd simply like to avoid these and go with a wired connection.

So now, what exactly do I need? I was under the impression that I'd need an "Access Point," but a friend of mine mentioned that a "Bridge" is actually what I am looking for.

So which exactly is it? I want to purchase something off newegg immediately and have found this:


Would this work? Do you know of any other solutions/better-cheaper products?

Thanks in advance,

Intel Q6600 @ 3204Mhz ~ Tuniq Tower 120 ~Corsair XMS2 5GB ~ WD VelociRaptor 150GB Main ~ WD 1TB Black ~ EVGA 8800GTS 640MB ~ 7 Home Premium (64-Bit)
