Advice for connecting my Xbox 360 Tags: Routers Xbox 360 Xbox Networking Last response: May 27, 2010 8:25 PM in Networking Share GreasedUp May 24, 2010 2:37:52 PM So I want to get my Xbox online, I can think of three options to do this and I need some advice please. 1. Buying the official Microsoft Wireless Adapter. 2. Purchasing a really long ethernet cable (about 15-20m), going from my router to my Xbox. 3. Or buy one of these Powerline Network device things, one plugged in next to my router, the other next to my Xbox. Now what I am looking for is the best setup for gaming, so I want as little lag as possible, an Open NAT and the best speeds available. I also would like to spend as little as possible. These are my only options as my Xbox is located upstairs and my router is downstairs, moving things around isnt an option. Any help or advice would be great, thanks.

I mean, you're not going to get much of a slower speed cause its wireless. Thats what I would try. KenMaster828 May 27, 2010 8:25:55 PM I would just go with the long ethernet cable. I've gone wireless on my Xbox 360 and PS3 and I've had problems with both. Once I went wired for both I've had little to no problems. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
