    i have a belkins router and bridge. can i connect the belkins bridge to xbox 360 so it gets the internet connection from the router?

    if not then i'll probably have to buy thexbox 360 wireless bridge. so if i do that then do i have to get a xbox router to make it work? or will it get the connections of my belkins router?

    below is my Belkin 802.11g

    grateful if u can assist me

    cheers

    Yes you can use that. Just follow the instructions you got with it.

    Sorry what I mean was, if you've already got a Belkin router and bridge, that will work with the Xbox. As the Bridge is ethernet... so.. it will work with anything with an ethernet port

    The USB wireless adaptor you've linked to won't work, you need the official Microsoft USB wireless adaptor.

    i have those below. i have a pc upstairs and i use the adaptor to connect to the router connected to my other pc which is downstairs.

    i tryed to put the adaptor in the xbox 360 and it didnt pick up a connection.

    so my question is:if i buy a xbox 360 wireless adaptor, will it connect with my belkin router which is downstairs?

    if not then what do you suggest i do?

    sorry if im not making much sense:cool:

    You need a backslash in the end img tag - [/img]

    What is this:

    [​IMG]

    Is it a 4 port wireless router? Model number?
    If so then use the USB adaptor you have on your other PC and buy an official MS wireless adaptor for your Xbox 360.

    I'm not sure on that router at all but if you go by customer reviews on Amazon then its utter crap.

    This is the wireless adaptor you want for your 360 - Clicky

    I've used an official MS wireless adaptor with my Belkin router without problem though the router wasn't the same model.

    i'll give it a crack anyway

    do u know what this guy means?
    ....
    I have my 360 plugged in to my PC, which then uses a wireless connection to a router in another room, which then connects to my cable modem. It took a bit of faffing about but it works fine

    The benefit of this is that I saved myself ~£60 and the ethernet cable came in the box along with the 360 .
    .........
