Best price around. Still a big ripoff though.

It is a big ripoff, especially considering any wireless bridge with some knowledge can be set up to work instead, I personally use a Belkin Wireless G gaming adapter picked up clearance from Comet for £20.

Can this be used without any problems for using online gaming, streaming music and films to your xbox as I have been advised to get a n router.

I noticed this the other day but didn't bother to post because people will vote cold because

[LIST=1]
[*]they use the network cable
[*]they use homeplugs
[*]they connect through a laptop
[*]they use a wireless gaming bridge
[*]they got the MS adaptor from Amazon for £35 (in Nov)
[/LIST]

Good luck - I'll vote it hot

I personally have not had any problems as yet (small house, and connected wirelessly to a Belkin Pre-n Mimo router) Certainly MS official one here is only G rated not N right?

Ive managed to stream 1080p over 54mbps without any stuttering or lag. Its just good enough, but this is with everything being close to the router.

I havent voted this either way, I think MS have a big rip off with this unit, considering any 54mbps bridge will work, its overpriced....for £45 you could use homeplugs or if you have a N router utilise a N bridge instead for this kind of money.

This NEVER works for me. I've connected my cross-over cable between my 360 and my laptop (Vista). I go to NXE's "Test PC Connection". NADA. Test fails. NXE says "Can't obtain an IP address from your router or modem."

I've set my 360 to obtain an IP Address automatically.

In essence, my X360 can't even see my frickin' PC let alone LIVE via it. Good one, Microsoft. You would've thought NXE and Vista would just do a whole bunch of this automatically. Hell, XBMC was easier to deal with than Vista/NXE.

lol blame ms for your lack of i.t skills.

Have you enabled ics?
Doesnt have to be a crossover cable either.

Yep. ICS is on. I once got the X360 to see the PC via the Media Sharing connection, at which point I bridged the internet connection with it. Nothing. Even tried it momentarily with no firewall. Still nothing.


Why doesn't it work? It shouldn't be this difficult. This is more difficult than networking via XBMC, which is a ridiculous concept, if you think about it.

Edit: no response? As I thought.

isn't this the only way to go if you really want wireless connection i.e no plugging into power, no connecting to laptop .e.t.c. ?

I've got my xbox talking fine through a cross-over cable to my Vista machine that has a wireless Internet connection.

The PC adaptor has an IP address of 192.168.0.1, 255.255.255.0 subnet mask, no default gateway set...make sure this isn't the same subnet you are using on the Internet side of your PC. I have manually set the xbox IP to 192.168.0.2, 255.255.255.0, default GW of 192.168.0.1. Maybe a reboot of both machines after the changes...reboot the xbox after the PC has restarted.

It was a while ago that I set it up, but I think the Vista machine might have asked what this network was (home or otherwise) and created firewall rules accordingly...I didn't need to turn it off or anything. I don't remember the process being too much of a drama. Did the same through my XP laptop.

As far as I know. I assume the Belkin Wireless needs an external power supply but not sure. It is really surprising that no one is offering a cheaper USB powered alternative to this rip off MS product.

Thanks for the non-condescending help, xyzbox. I'll give this a go. Have some rep. :-D

Oh sorry. I didnt know you needed a response.

Quick guide to sharing internet to an xbox 360 (and it works cos i just did it and the longest part was plugging everything in).

1. Plug everything in

2. Share the internet connection (untick allow others to control the shared internet connection)

http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm219/deathtrap3000/Untitled-1.jpg

3. Turn on your 360 and enjoy xbox live.

I was amazed I got it to work so quickly.
