    Hey all,
    I've got a wireless router going into a wired router. The wireless router is only used by my Xbox360. My wired router has a Linux & Windows PC on it. The Windows PC has two NIC cards, and both are going into it.
    I setup the option to have each wireless adapter (XBox360) be on it's own VPN to help hide anyone who gets in on the wireless router from my PCs. Is there anyway to tell if this is working? Obviously, I can't go into the Xbox and starting pinging my PCs or anything.

    Nevermind. I found out you can stream videos off your PC into your Xbox360 and watch them on your TV, so I tried it, and it worked. So I guess the wireless connections can still see my PCs.

    yeah - I would say VPN would be overkill for this anyway....
