wireless xbox?

Hi, I have a desktop PC upstairs that is wireless capable but is hooked up to a wired modem. My Xbox 360 is downstairs next to the tv, I have a new wireless netgear router that I was wondering if I could just hook that up to my xbox downstairs and keep the pc wired upstairs, as I know that most my friends have their 360's plugged straight into the wireless router. Can I have both wired upstairs and wireless plugged in the back of XBOX? If so how

PS3 or Xbox? Answered

Basically, I've been on the fence for a while on whether or not to buy a PS3 or Xbox 360? I've finally decided to get one of them, but which one exactly? I've been kinda leaning towards PS3, as it has free online multiplayer, but what with the new, sleeker Xbox 360, and Natal *ahem* I mean, Kinect, I sorta want to get an Xbox, though I don't enjoy the fact that multiplayer costs money, however cheap it may be. Could someone help me, the late adapter decide? I'd be much obliged.

Xbox 360 (edited)

So I got an xbox 360 elite for Christmas.  I set up my xbox live account and already have 75 gamerscore lol. My xbox 360 gamertag is "InvariantMedal".  I'm not a serious player, but I am decent at games when I master their controls. I'll post pictures of my xbox setup in my den later on.  Maybe tomorrow.  What's your setup look like?   *EDIT- 3/18/10*  Don't expect to see me on live for a while.  Some asshole broke into my house and stole my 360 and other game consoles.  I did manage to get 2615 gamerscore before my 360 got stolen.

The New XBOX 360

I just want to hear what you guys think about about the new xbox, which was released yesterday, I have heard it has built- in Wi Fi, quieter running, looks good and has a massive 250 gb hard drive. PS3 owners don't start bragging about ps3 here, just honestly say what you think about it. Advantages over current XBOX 360: >250 GB Internal Hard Drive >Improved reliability >Internal Wi Fi at the strongest strength, not en extra £60 ($100) >Kinect Ready >Only $299 0r around £180-200 (same price as the current elite) >Amazing new retro looks to the original XBOX here is the Microsoft Website (a bit biased though!) http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hardware/

internet for xbox live

I used to have high speed internet., the service provider was AT&T. One day we could not get internet. at&t said we had it. The main point is that we don;t have any more. I was looking into one of those connect cards, and wondered is it fast enough for xbox live. Do you need 3G coverage for it to work.. I live right out side the boundry between 3G and the lower bit for Verizion. I checked a local cell phone service coverage and its the same thing as Verizion. My question is what do I do. Are the conect cards fast enough any way or what. And if so, who has the best. the cheapest, and the best MB limit.  Who should I go with and what do I do. My local cell company is Cellular South. I was looking at CS's Huawei EC 168 Data Card. Just google cellular south connect card to find it.  I am definetly going to get the 5 gigs of possible downloads.(if my parents will pay for it) I am only 14, so I can't do a whole lot. Please help!

Xbox Disk changer? Answered

I had an idea for a xbox disk changer, considering my extreme laziness. Basically, It would be an old music disk changer with the same xbox style disk drive in it. The drives ribbon cable would connect from the changer to the xbox, then I'd record the disk switch (up & down) IR signal, and put it in my xbox controller. like www.instructables.com/id/Done/ . So to sum it up, I want to make a 6 disk xbox changer and put the remote in my controller. What I'm asking is how much of a hassle, and even if this is even possible.

[TUT] Setup a VPN on an Xbox 360 and Xbox one Console

Info: There are many benefits to routing your xbox IP through a VPN connection. This ranges from utilizing exclusive American content, to hiding your IP from DDoSers, or even hiding your location from Doxers. This tutorial will show you a loophole that allows you to get around/avoid these hassles. Let us begin. Things you need: WiFi Connection Laptop with LAN port VPN (Virtual Private Network) Ethernet Cable VPN's: IPVanish PureVPN ExpressVPN This tutorial was done using IPVanish When installing these, make sure it sets you up with an American IP so you have access to American Xbox Content. How to Setup VPN on your Xbox Console Use Router Base Connection to Setup VPN on Xbox One of the methods of setting up Xbox One VPN is by tunneling your service via router and then connecting your gaming console and other devices to the router. Note that the setup may vary according to the router you use and the instructions provided by the VPN provider. Use the following steps to configure a VPN service on your router: You need an Ethernet cable and connect your modem to the WAN port in the router. Open your Router’s Control Panel – accessible from your system control panel. Go to the ‘Basic Setup’ / ‘Network’ / ‘Basic’ tab in your router control panel (where you can configure WAN or Internet settings). Enter the setup details provided by your VPN provider (username, password, gateway, subnet mask, etc.). Select the appropriate protocol settings and the change the ‘Connection Type’ based on your router and VPN providers instructions (usually to PPTP, but it depends). Select the appropriate DCHP settings depending on the requirements by your VPN provider. Click the Apply Settings / Save / Connect button and you are done. Now you can connect your Xbox to the router either through Wi-Fi or through Ethernet cable and can enjoy using VPN on your Xbox 360 or Xbox One. Use Your Computer to Setup VPN on Xbox You can also configure a VPN service on your Xbox through sharing the VPN connection on your personal computer with the gaming console. Firstly, setup a VPN connection on your computer: Go to ‘Network and Sharing Center’ from your system’s Control Panel. Click on ‘Setup a New Connection or Network’ and a wizard will appear. Select ‘Connect to a Workplace’ and click ‘Next’. The wizard will ask ‘how do you want to connect?’- select ‘Use my Internet Connection (VPN)’. Next you will have to enter the Internet Address and Destination Name provided by your VPN provider. Enter the details and click ‘Next’. Now enter the Username and Password of your VPN service and click ‘Connect’. If you already have a VPN configured on your computer, use the following steps to connect it to your Xbox: Connect your Xbox with your PC using an Ethernet cable or Wi-Fi. Go to ‘Network and Sharing Center’ from your system’s control panel. Click on the ‘Change Adapter Settings’ on the left side bar. Right click on your VPN connection and click ‘Properties’. Go to the ‘Sharing’ tab and check ‘Allow other network users to connect through this computer’s internet connection’ option. Click on the drop down menu below ‘Home Networking Connection’ and select ‘Local Area Network’. Click ‘Ok’.
