Good price for this Zyxel cable router with free USB wireless dongle. This is for Cable connections (e.g. Virgin Media) and NOT ADSL connections. PC World Online and in-store (I bought one in-store). The built-in HTML based control panel is very feature rich.

If you hook the Xbox 360 up to this via an ethernet cable, it will work. However, if you want to use it wirelessley, then you'll need the wireless adaptor for the Xbox 360, as it does not come wireless-enabled out of the box. Either way, this router will work with the Xbox 360.

Yeah , Think I see how it works.
The 360 will be downstairs with the wireless adaptor (which I will have to get ) this cable router will be plugged into my broadband modem up in the bedroom.
Have I got it ???

Yes, exactly. The cable modem plugs in to the WLAN port on this router via an ethernet cable. Then all your wireless devices (Xbox 360 with a wireless adaptor, laptop, PC, etc.) can communicate with the router wirelessely and share an internet connection.

Great , thanks for the help :thumbsup:

Bingo!

the only prob is taking up socket place- one plug for modem, one plug for router etc etc.....

is there such thing as a wireless modem compatable with cable i.e birgin media?
so i end up with a single device to get wireless rather than having a modem and a routwer
