hi i have bt broadband which is a pathetic 0.5 mbps but i also have a 3 mobile broadband that is around 5.6mbps. And i was wondering if i would be able to connect the 3 dongle to the in use bt router to create a wireless 3 connection in order to play xbox live?

Nope, not as a router. ADSL routers route between the ADSL Modem (WAN) and the WiFi/Ethernet (LAN).

However, you may be able to use MS Internet Connection Sharing to connect the Xbox via the PC that has the dongle. How to configure ICS is on the MS Web site.

Have you read the many threads on these forums on 'tuning' your Intent Wiring to eke to moist ouit of you existing line.

Actually if you were to replace your router with someting like the Draytek 2820n you could use ADSL or 3G or even a cable connection.
