Is it possible to connect multiple xboxes to a laptop (which is connected wirelessly in my basement) and still have both xboxes recognized in XBC/KAi?
Well I don't know shit about Xbc, even if I did I wouldn't even bother to answer that part. But sure, someone got to love shareware and skins too. Enough about that... Regaring XLink Kai; Yes. 100% possible, stable, and working setup.
I currently use XBC since my XP is messed up and Kai's engine keeps failing every single time i load it.(but thats for another thread)
If Kai crashes; uninstall it, delete files and folder, restart pc, download Kai, install Kai.
The only way i can think of this to work is buy another router/switch and connect both xbox to router's port using normal RJ-45 patch ethernet cable adn connect the laptop to the router w/ crossover calbe.
There are no such thing as a RJ-45 cable. RJ-45 is the name of the 8 pin plugs an ethernet cable uses. Why do you want to connect the Xboxes to the switch or router w. built in switch with a stright ethernet cable, and then the switch or router w. built in switch to the laptop with a crossed ethernet cable? You can use both stright and crossed cables to and from a switch or router w. built in switch as long as it's newer that your grandma (Auto Negotioating).
My laptop uses the USB port for the wireless internet(Netgear MA111) so i have only one ehternet port free.
If this is possible please elaborate the idea since i dont wanna end up buying a router if this wont work.
Just bridge the connection in Windows XP and the dhcp will take care of the rest.
