  1. Sooo, I've been forced out of my awesome tv room, into a room where i can not run a lan cable. I am aware that Microsoft makes a wireless adapter, but i do not feel like spending $120. Is it possible to use a non xbox wireless adapter? Thanks for the help!

    I remember hearing about some guy hacking a wireless adapter to work with his 360 but that seemed like major modding...so unless youre good wiht programming i dont think theres any other choice.


    PS does Habitat H20 ring a bell with you?

    You can get a wireless bridge if you like, they are little boxes that you can connect a short ethernet cord from your 360 to and they can connect to a wireless access point(router).

    A wireless bridge huh, you may have just solved my post!!

    How affordable are they, and do they work with ATT Dsl modems and linksys routers

    Linksys (cheaper)

    Microsoft brand

    The linksys seems to do the same same as the microsoft brand adapter, and is on average $30 less.

    Just beware, if you have any encryption on your network, the Linksys will not work out of the box. You will need to connect it to a PC first, configure it with software, then connect it to your xbox.

    It won't work for encrypted vista connections. I'll find a different brand or something
