    I'm researching wireless routers to use with xbox live and am just wondering, how do you actually make the xbox wireless? I've seen wireless PCI cards and wireless PC cards (for laptops), but I've never seen a wireless adapter that hooks directly into an ethernet plug. Do they make them? How do you guys get your wireless signal to your xbox?

    Something like this would work well. It's basically transparent; it connects your Xbox directly to your wireless router just as if you had a wire running all the way to the router.

    The linksys WET11 (see above) or the Dlink DWL-810 are stand-alone wireless nodes that don't need an OS. I use the 810 to connect my Xbox, it works flawlessly and painlessly.

    You can also use another router as a node and just tell it to be a slave to the main one.

    Best...

    Thanks for the replys. Last night when I was reading about routers I had found an SMC version of what you guys are suggesting, but wanted to see if that was what was needed. Thanks again for the help.
