Can I Hardwire This Wireless Adapter?
Posted 07 August 2006 - 09:18 AM
I came across this which is compact and is made for wireless console gaming. Think it would work? I'm thinking of hardwiring the ethernet cable and it says it runs of 5V so I could just connect in the box somewhere.
Is there any reason this wouldn't work? Hopefully an obvious problem didn't fly over my head.
Thanks - Kevin

I'd at least velcro it to the back of the X-box, and twin its power cord with the X-box'es one, and use a short RJ45 jumper cable.
If you are brave, you can try to fit it inside the case somewhere, and connect its power supply AC terminals tothe X-box PSU AC terminals somehow. I wouldn't recommend you do that unless you know what you are doing.

I actually had a couple spots in mind inside the box. If I take it out of case it appears to be small enough to fit under the DVD drive without any major problems. Of course saying and doing are two different things.
I'd be sure I knew what I was doing before I risk my Xbox. I'll be sure to read up on it.
But anyway, it's compatible and all?

also leave the RJ-45 cable looped outside of the xbox long enought the get access to it incase you need to
changes settings on the bridge..
it should be ok to use the +5VDC from the xbox

And what do you mean by having the cable looped out side the box?
