Wireless Access Point for Home Network

I have wrieless set-up in my house that I use for my laptop. I may eventually be getting a 360, and I also have a TiVo. Since the XBox wireless adapter costs $100 and I would assume one for the TiVo would be around $25~30 I was wondering if there was another option.

Now is there something I could buy, and run a hardwired connection from both pieces to a box that connects to my network, thus saving me from having to buy 2 pieces.

I was thinking something like this:

but it only has one LAN port, and I would like at least 2. Is this along the correct lines?

Thanks for your help.

Try the Linksys WET54GS5. It's a wireless switch. I've had one for about a year and it works perfectly. The computer has no idea it's on a 802.11g wireless network. 5 ports too.
