any other way to make xbox360 wireless £60 is a lot of cash to go wireless
Do what I did, buy one of these:
Works wonders. Cheapest price I've seen ANYWHERE for one of those. They are the official Microsoft brand by the way.
Option 2: wireless bridge be it in hardware or made from spare routers and wireless distribution (WDS).
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Mad+Catz+-+Wir...d=1218115835577 not the cheapest but it shows how it works in the pictures and isn't limited to the xbox only it works with anything with Ethernet.
can i use my laptop to make my xbox360 wireless
You can if the laptop has two network ports, use a standard wired cable (some will say you need a crossover but most modern ports will work around it) and connect to the router via wireless on the laptop.
In windows select both connections, right click and press bridge connections.
so got 2 both connections wireless and cable ???????????????????
Yeah, most laptops these days come with a wired connection and more than a few come with wireless built, not that USB or PCMCIA are hard to come by.
Still there are loads of videos on the subject, one of them
All I needed for my laptop was just an Ethernet cable.
Plugged the Ethernet cable into the port on my laptop, and then plugged the other end into the Xbox and viola. Though it did take about 45 minutes to fully get it working since I had to configure settings through the wireless settings. I also have to disable my anti-virus' firewall for the Xbox to connect.
That is why I just ended up buying the wireless adapter I posted.
I found this to be the best way. I had a spare old wireless router with DD-WRT on it. Worked just fine.
