    HELP!! Need to connect:

    AIRPORT BASE>XBOX>MAC>ROUTER

    My current set-up works fine. But I would like to connect my spare Airport Base Station (older ufo model) directly to my Xbox so I can connect to Xbox Live. This way, I don't have to use my laptop as a bridge all the time.

    Current Set-Up: XBOX>LAPTOP>ROUTER>MODEM
    My wife's PC is connected directly to the modem, then my wireless Linksys router connects from that to my laptop.

    Is this possible? I think I need to either connect the Airport BS to my laptop and then my laptop to the router. This in effect would be two bridges. Or I can just connect the Airport BS to my router directly. The only problem is that I don't know how in the hell to do it properly. And of-course after I have the correct set-up ready, I have to input all the right numbers and addresses into my Xbox.

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks and email if you have any questions.

    Best,

    Jason

    p.s. don't use help in the title of a thread. it's like advertising that you have aids at a pool.
