Has anyone used a wireless adapter like
IOGEAR Ethernet-2-WiFi Universal Wireless Adapter, GWU637
OR
NETGEAR Universal N300 Wi-Fi to Ethernet Adapter (WNCE2001)

to connect a wired IP camera to a wireless network?
Seems there are many good quality wired cameras but not to many wireless cameras. I was hoping someone has tried this!

I read an interesting artical that said if you are going to run video over wireless that you should only be using N. Not b or g. Which only raises the question why wireless cameras only have b and g. So my latest thought is to use wireless access points in bridge mode. Dual band access points are about $30. Which may be cheaper than dealing with all the wireless camera issues I have been having still need to run a wire to the point but may be easier than full on wiring. Add a few ups’s and you are done.
