      I started to use homeplugs about a year ago and it sorted out all my gaming problems in one foul swoop, you can even get ones that have a wireless point on the (a little aerial on the plug) to extend the wireless range for laptops etc. It's as good as being plugged directly into the router via ethernet.

      40 from e-bay for the 85Mbps Solwise just do a search or PC world do the for a little more.
      OK will I still need the wireless adaptor for the xbox? Ive heard they are good but have no idea how it would work my set up is pc with router plugged in to it and the phone line 2 wireless laptops and a 360

      If you use Homeplugs you wouldn't need the wireless adapter. Instead you would have a Homeplug plugged into the wall mains socket near the router, an ethernet cable from the router to the homeplug, a second Homeplug plugged into the mains near your Xbox, and an ethernet cable linking this second Homeplug and the xbox.
      Hope that makes sense.
