Wireless internet for 360?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i can't play my 360 on my 42" down stairs because i don't have a connection downstairs to connect the ethernet. i was thinking of installing a wireless router upstairs and having it communicate with a wireless router downstairs connected to the 360. would this work pretty well??

Yeah, wireless internet travels fairly well.

Wireless works fine, that's what I do. Two routers though, that's a challenge to set up...each router is going to try to set up its own LAN. I'm sure it can be done, but it won't be plug and play. Easier to just put a single wireless router down by your cable modem, then use either a USB wireless adaptor or an ethernet wireless bridge to connect your 360 onto that LAN.

I use the MS wireless adapter as well and it works just fine for my downstairs XBox. Upstairs I use the internet connection sharing feature and it seems to work just fine also.

i'll look on ebay for the wire less antenna, b/c i'm not paying $100 for a piece of plastic that should of come with 360's in the first place.

I had this same dilemma and what I did was go buy a linksys WRT54G router and put DD-WRT on it and then set it up as a client bridge, you could set it up as repeater, client bridge, or wireless bridge, and had it connect to my main wireless router and then just plugged my 360 into the second router with DD-WRT.

If you do this try to get an older wrt54g model, I believe around Ver.5 because they have more ram. Mine is ver.8 and only had 2mb ram so I had to put DD-WRT mini on it.

Only problem that I ran into was that the router would not give the 360 an IP address so I just had to manually enter the info in.

Its alittle cheaper then the 360 wireless add-on and you also get another router in the process. Just my 2 cents.

You would want a vers 1 router wrt54g that has 8 meg ram, I have one, pretty cool you can flash 3rd party bios and get additional features
