Got to set-up a Xbox using one of the Wireless XBox adpater things but unsure if the following is possible. So as follows, I Have described it.

PC winXP downstairs with a Netgear Wireless router, another pc upstairs in room going to connect a wirless Netgear Adapter to make wireless connection.

My problem is the Xbox Console, if using a Xbox Wireless adapter, can the Xbox stay in sons bedroom, plug in the XBox Wireless adapter to the upstairs pc and the Xbox console picks up the adapter from the uptairs pc. Is their a built in wirsless adapter inside the Xbox console or do I need 2 XBox Adapters ?

Also can the Netgear Wireless USB adapter & the XBox Wireless adpater both be fitted to one pc or have I lodt the plot and got it all wrong.

Help please cos I need tomake sure it all works for xmas. Thank u

Hard to decipher what you wrote, But I think I got the gist of it.

"My problem is the Xbox Console, if using a Xbox Wireless adapter, can the Xbox stay in sons bedroom" = Yes (Connects Wirelessly to your Router).

"Also can the Netgear Wireless USB adapter & the XBox Wireless adpater both be fitted to one pc or have I lodt the plot and got it all wrong."
I think you have lost the plot [JOKE ;o) ].

Just connect the Xbox Wireless adapter to XBox(360) and connect through router.

Has the xbox got a hard drive fitted ?

Thanks for the call!

Don't know if its got a HDD in the Xbox. Have some got them and some not got HDD's in them ? If its not got a HDD fitted, is one needed and does this work like a PC HDD as in used for Storing Games.

I get the gist how the adapter works now, but the HDD er could you explain please. Thanks

All makes sense now, just worry about hoping the wirless connection with it works. I have saved the site as a favourite, pleanty of diagrams and stuff.

Thanks for the rapid response and also thanks for sorting me out. !

Goodnite and best wishes (even tough its a little early)

"does this work like a PC HDD as in used for Storing Games". In a word No, You can Download Games (Original XBox1) Games and XBox360 Demo's, Film (When they get round to it).
You can also RIP Audio CD's to the H/D to play while Playing XBox360 games (Most, Not all).

Does that help?
