    Hi All,
    I recently purchased a wireless netgear router - which is superb! Now my only problem is that i have a bloody ugly cat5 cable trailing accross my front room. :mad:

    Does anybody on the forum own or can recomend a decent wireless bridge that will connect to my router from the xbox itself?

    Hope you understand me, many thanks in advance :confused:

    DUFF :censored:

    Hmm , i was looking for something smaller, neater and better looking - if you know what i mean>>>

    I stumbled upon a me101 (netgear) on amazon but its nearly as much as my dg824 which does five times more (what i already own). I guess ill just have to wait and have that bloody long cable grrrr:eek: grrrr

    Oh just seen one on the xbox website - but only out USA - bloody typical!

    Im after a ms adapter, and have noticed a couple going on ebay america that will be shipped worldwide.

    This (740 i think) has an internal & external antenna,so i would presume it would be 1 of the best on the market.

    I had a low connection reading on my wireless laptop,which was in the same room as my xbox.
    So i hope the ms adapter will be upto the job.

    If that fails i guess i'll have to move xbox upstairs.

    Just gotta have LIVE :)

    Probably worth bearing in mind that you're not gonna get as good a connection with wireless.

    i am using one of these , setup is simplicity itself, connect the bridge to a PC via a network adapter, it will automatically detect your wireless access point, and connect to it.

    hope this helps.

    DuffDuff, I would imagine what I posted or what Lonestar posted would be sufficient for your needs. I wouldnt think you will lose anything cos its wireless the transfer rate is fine for Xbox Live etc.

    If £50 is what you were expecting to pay then either will do it.
