    Hi, Im trying to figure out how to get my xbox 360 to work remotely.
    This will potentially involve "Daisy Chaining" routers...

    Please look at my image and tell if this is possible, and if so how to do it thanks.

    Just from looking at your picture, I would say to just get a wireless adapter for the Xbox 360. Although, you will want to make sure the Xbox 360 is within range for wireless, about how many feet away is the Xbox from the router.

    I would second the response from Bobacus.

    To follow your diagram would require the second router to run in 'bridge' mode and not all 'home' routers have this ability and the configuration is a little more difficult.

    Using a wireless adaptor for the Xbox would be the best and cheapest option - unless you have a spare router around.

    the cheapest way is to... thread a new work cable , That is what i did long long time ago, with a green 100FT cable, and that worked much better then a wire setup, but if you want to get somthing like a bridge then look at the small wall plug router from apple it can do that very same thing as i do that, but know it wont work on my network but i think i have changed the wireless to my old name or somthing
