Default xbox 360 WiFi dongle or WiFi router/repeater for xbox live??? HELP PLZ

xbox 360 WiFi dongle or WiFi router/repeater for xbox live??? HELP PLZ

I keep finding WiFi dongles that say it will work on a 360, but it has to be hooked up to a PC first and programed, and you will have problems if anyone else uses a said channel within 10 miles, making it sound like a crap shoot.

Dunno why I couldn't just get a cheap WiFi router and plug it into the 360 as a repeater???

Really don't want to drill holes in walls or run 80ft of cable.

but it also has to work well.

HELP PLZ

I assume you have the Elite. If that's the case, all you need is an adapter like this, which does not require being configured via PC first.

This is made by Microsoft. I cannot say whether those made by others are the same way.

After reading your post again it doesn't really make any sense or I'm i just not getting it
If you have broadband that means you have a router and you have a WiFi Xbox, just go WiFi and if you're far away from your router just get then signal repeater's

I went wired. Way worth it. If you must go wireless, just buy the Mickeysoft one

All the XBox Slims have built in Wi-Fi. You should be able just to go to the system settings and scan and connect it.

hold up. Do you even have a wireless router in your home? Or is your PC wired straight to the modem of your ISP?


either way. ....wired is the best way to go.

If you buy an adapter that requires you to plug it into a computer first, you're only using the computer for the setup process (connecting to wifi). It should work just as well as any other wifi device you have, but you can't beat wired for gaming.

These may have better radios. They do N as well. Have dual antennae may mean they can send and receive at the same time depending on how they were engineered. Amazon.com: Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter: Video Games

I did not know that, its the GF son, and I don't mess with it to much and I don't have a 360 yet, so I assumed he knew he didn't have it.
