    Ok, so i dont want to buy an official network adapter as it is so expensive.

    I was wondering what other alternatives i can use with my current set up.

    I have my PC connected wirelessley to a router and my xbox is next to my PC.
    It is not possible to run a CAT5 from the router to my PC.

    Any suggestions please?

    Thanks

    Edit - oh I see what you mean, run the connection off the wireless PC. I'm not sure about that sorry.

    I think it's possible but I also think it affects the connection speed.

    Wireless bridge which connects to the ethernet port of your 360 is one option.

    Or CAT5 from the 360 to your PC and use ICS. Means your PC will have to be on all the time you are gaming mind.

    Hang around these forums long enough and you'll get an official jobbie for sub £39.

    It'll be you best and most solid connection.
