Its for a few systems so ill put it here. Ive been dying to do a setup where i can talk in a x-box chat while playing socom on x-box. After everyone else doing it last night, i decided to do something today. Was gonna get a switch or something but saw these new Wireless game adapters by linksys. Its a small box with lots of different channels on it (looks like a walkie talkie). Finally finished hooking it up after some problems (helps if you put the correct SSID phrase on it :-)) Works great so far. Connected fast and works in game very well. May pick up another for my x-box so if i move around the house live play is everyewhere. maybe try outside one day

It's not a router. It's more of a wireless bridge or access point. You can use it in conjunction with a wireless router to have a wireless internet connection, or you can have multiple game systems, each with their own adapter on the same channel and have wireless system link gaming.

 

I got one today, too, coincidentally, but haven't done more with it than download the new Xbox Live dashboard...

So this is comparable to the D-Link DWL-810?

 

Yes...except the Linksys will also function as a wireless connection between two Xboxes. If you buy two of these devices you can set them to the same channel and they create a unique network for localized head-to-head play (just like connecting the two consoles via crossover cable).

 

I got mine yesterday...I can't get it working. It sees my Linksys wireless network but the Xbox can't go online. I must have a password or something I forgot about...but I have no way to find out what I'm missing.

If you have a wireless network which uses WEP you need to use your comp to configure it. You plug it into your comp. Put the cd in and do setup. It will detect the device. then you just edit the setting. Type of conn you want, Detect IP auto or notm , the SSID(your wireless routers ID), and your wep key. If you dont have any of that still try using the setup and enter the stuff as you need to
