Well gang.. after askin' everyone to push me over the fence, I went shoppin today. It's gonna cost me 500 bucks to get my beloved XBox online! I just can't justify that cost... and my wife would shoot me I think. (Better spent on DVD's...snicker) Keep in mind, these are Canuck-bucks... So it's 80 bucks for the Live Kit. 199 for the LinkSys wireless 4-point switch, and 220 for the WET-11CA bridge. Man.. I wish I coulda prewired my house while it was being built!!! (Good thing I wasn't looking for the wireless HUB...it's 500 bucks by itself!) Grrrr... So... end result is I either truck my cable-modem up and down the stairs (which seems like too much hassle) or I run wires down the stairwell (see previous wife-shooting-me comment) or I just stick with PC multiplayer for now. *SIGH* Anyone have any alternate suggestions? On the plus side... I *might* be able to pick up Steel Battalion.. although I have no idea where I'll store the controller. *sniff* Thanks for letting me whine.
