    I'd love to hook up without running LAN cables from my PC. Is there a way to use a wireless router/switch? Is there a way to connect the antenna to the XBOX? All I can find are NIC's for PC's that would have to be installed and who want's to tamper with that $300 consoles squidlylspooges.

    Would 11MPS (WIFI?) be fast enough for HALO online or local? I haven't bought any LAN stuff yet, but my better half gave me the nod to proceed. Thanks for any info or links to resources.

    You could set up a wireless bridiging setup - the cheap linksys wap11 will do that - but you'll need 2 of them. I believe linksys is supposed to come out with a wireless adapter that basically plugs into the ethernet port on the Xbox - I seem to recall reading this in a magazine, but have yet to find any evidence of this product.

    I am interested in this as well - that's about the best scenario I've come accross to date.
