      Newbie Sky BB/Xbox Live Question

      My current setup has my PC upstairs with router connected for wired internet access as I understand its more reliable and my PC cant support wireless.

      My 360 is downstairs and I dont have the wireless adaptor.

      Would it still be possible for me to go online at all? If so would I just need to buy a longer ethernet cable than the bundled one and connect it to port 2 on the router?

      Thanks for looking
      Carl

      Either move your 360 near the router and use the ethernet cable provided, or get a long one that will reach, or get a wireless adapter for your 360, whichever is easiest / cheapest for you i guess.

      Re: Newbie Sky BB/Xbox Live Question

      If you have no entention of moving the Xbox around, The wired option would be best, As you can get about 100m for around ~30-40 and it has its advantages,
      a) It is a direct connection to the Router
      b) No hassling with Signal Levels ect

      However, Disadvantages are that you cant move the console around, Unless you have left some extra cabling.

      PS. You can pickup a Xbox 360 WiFi adaptor for about 45 Quid on Ebay.
