    This may be the wong place to ask this but...
    I have my MBP on a wireless netgear "N" router
    I just moved my 360 and have an old Linksys WET11 Bridge
    Can I connect my 360 to the Netgear by setting it up with my mac?
    The 360 specific usb wireless thing is 100 buck (ripoff)

    Thanks!!

    Are you asking how to setup a wireless connection with your mac and the XBOX? If so, go to network connection on your XBOX and have it look for a wireless connection. Is that what your asking? Also, do you have to buy that specific wireless adapter for the XBOX or can you just buy a regular USB one and use that?

    Actually, I'm trying to setup a network I guess between everything.
    I want to be able to go online and game on the Xbox, but I also would like to use 360connect to stream my music and pics to my xbox.
    I stink with networking, especially when using 3 different wireless devices.

    Ok, first, locate your modem. I'm sure you have a wireless router now too. Connect an ethernet chord from the modem to your man computer. Then take your wireless router and connect that via ethernet to your modem. I dont know how the XBOX streams all that stuff in the first place, but it would need to be able to access all the files from whatever computer it is getting them off of. :) Hope that is what you wanted.
