          I have and extra pc I could put next to the slingbox. I could then connect the pc to the wireless and plug the slingbox into the pc. Will this work?

              You could use a wireless bridge (also known as a gaming adapter).  I use a Netgear WGE111 but there are many alternatives available.  If your router supports 802.11n then better to get a gaming adaptor that supports that -- you'll get better speed and range.  Connect the gaming adapter to the Slingbox using an ethernet cable.

                  Thanks so much for the response! I got iot working! I use an Apple Airport Extreme wireless router. I then bought a Airport Express, plugged it in next to my slingbox. It hooked itself up as a base station pretty much automaticaly. Works great! I have a couple other questions now on watching it but Ill post those seperate. Thanks again for your help!
