I have a 2Wire wireless modem/router hooked up to my desktop PC in a bedroom. I also have a laptop that connects to the 2Wire wireless. I have a spare LinkSys wireless router and was wondering if I can hook it up to the Xbox 360s ethernet port to receive signal from my 2Wire wireless since the Xbox 360 is in the livingroom. Can someone tell me what I've got to do to get this to work? I know that I can hook the 360 to my laptop but want something permanent without buying the Microsoft wireless addapter.

Yeah you can.. what you need to do is:

(assuming you are using windows xp or some form of windows)


1. Run an ethernet chord from your 360 to an empty PC ethernet port
2. Go to control panel->network->find your wireless connection and right click and chose properties
3. BRIDGE the connecting with the ethernet port that you plugged the 360 into
4. Enable sharing on the wireless networking connection

Try to connect to live.. it should be using your wireless card now to connect

I am trying the same thing and have two uestions;

1) What does it mean to bridge the connection?

2) Do i need to use a regular ethernet cord or a crossover? (i dont have the one that came with the 360)

even though this post is a month old, i dont think thats what he means, i think he wants to plug his xtra wirless router into the outlet next to his 360 and hard wire his 360 to this router, and have this wireless router connct to his 2wire wireless modem

i dont see why this wouldnt work, you probably have to go into your 2wire control panel and change some settings so it can pick up this wireless router, possibly need to manually enter ip, dns and password or something in the 360 dash, i have no wireless connection backround so i could be wrong but it seems plausable, i stick with hard wiring, even ran a 150' cord b4 just so its hard wired, i dont like wireless internet that much, other stuff is fine but not when you transfer a lot of data every day of the week

hopefully you figured it out by now or a wireless guru knows what to do to get it to work but i think it can work with a little fiddleing with some options
