    Once my Xbox proprietary video port to VGA adapter arrives, I will be moving my Xbox into my room and I will set it up with my KVM switch. The only way I can get Live on the Xbox in my room is by using my Airport Express (Wireless N version) as a bridge. I have used it successfully as a wireless bridge on many of my macs, but I want to know if I will have any issues using it on my Xbox 360. People have reported issues with Airport Extremes and Xbox 360's in the past (MRoogler here), but I want to know if I will have issues with my Airport Express.

    Thanks in advance,
    Alpha

    Will I have to set a static IP address on the Xbox, or will it set itself up with a dynamic IP without any issues?

    I can safely say that after about 10 hours of gaming on my Acer display (with the VGA adapter), the Airport Express works just fine as a wireless bridge. There was one time about an hour into owning the adapter, that the Airport express status light went amber and then went back to green a couple minutes later. When it turned amber, the Xbox live connection went down. When it turned green, it was reconnected.
