Xbox Wireless Adapter
« on: November 04, 2011, 05:05:16 pm »
In keeping with the fact that my new set up here isn't the same as before, I no longer have Xbox Live connection because the ethernet cord is not long enough to reach console. So, I am looking at having to go the wireless adapter route. It's 50 bucks for that. But I remember reading that there were alternatives (work around) to combat this.

Umaine, care to chime in on this?

Well there are work arounds yes and I actually use one on my 360 on the bedroom. however that type of work around would require you'r 360 to be withing 6 feet of your PC and for your wireless adapted to also have an ethernet port. Even then I'm not sure what kind latency issues there are in MP games. I'll assume your 360 isn't close to your pc.

You can always get a longer ethernet cable from monoprice.com for pretty cheap. From what I've read over the life of the 360 the first best bet for a wireless adapter is the one by MS, all 3rd party adapters are hit or miss at best. Now with all the new 360s coming out have wireless built in so the MS wireless is in the process of being discontinued. So $50 for the dual band adapter probably not to bad but a longer ethernet cord would most definately be cheaper me thinks.

Well, the Xbox is within 6 feet of my PC. The problem is that the Wireless router is running off from the other room with my PC currently as wireless, so the longer cable is kind of pushing it. Not sure they would even have long enough cable to make it work. I guess getting the official adapter would be the way to go. Just need to see if I can find one cheaper than the retail price.
