Connect the Xbox to the PC via a crossover cable and it will work smile.gif

thats pretty worthless, is that really the only way it will work? Why is a wireless network any different than a wired one? isn't there a way to just tell xbc the ip of your xbox?

The simple explanation is:

When the xbox is wireless it's viewed as a separate computer hooked up, you have to have it wired to the pc so it's considered on the same network as the pc. That's the really dumbed down way to explain how it works, you want the xbox to be slaved to the computer when the pc's wireless
