Ok so im on a wireless network with my linksys Wusb thing, My router is in my parents office, im planning on moving the router into my room and having the linksys wireless in the office. But my one problem is my pc is networked to my xbox, can i have two network cards hooked up without an issue? One for my xbox and one for internet?

Just thought, my modem/router has an option for usb, is that better than going through my network card?

No problem, go for it.

Issue each one their own IP address, that's it.

Stick with the network card, instead of the USB option, easier to configure

Why does your XBOX connect through your computer? Can't you connect it to your router directly since your moving it?

Also don't use USB (UnSuitable for Broadband) :p

well.... USB would be suitable for broadband.... depending what speed of broadband.... and whether using USB or USB2. USB is capable of what..... 4MB/s?

the only issue i know with using USB is the fact that you have a chance of driver/installation issues. using a network cable, it's usually just plug it in and go.

and as Admiral said... since you're moving the router, why not just connect the Xbox to the router directly?

Could also hook a wireless bridge up to your xbox :)

There would be expense involved, but would work rather well.

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
