question about the wireless xbox 360

This thing any good to shell out 100 bucks for it? Will I have any trouble connecting to my at&t dsl? Wife won't let me run cords through the house.

2009 Pontiac G8 GT white hot

It works great but for the same money you could do powerline ethernet.

Raptor 700R

i use one and no problem at all, even running 2 laptops. I like it since it doesn't need power like the old one did from the regular xbox, plus a clean look

i have used one for 2 yrs but it looks like i have to get a new one since it causes my xbox to freeze up. take it off and it works great, plug it in and it freezes.

2wire modem? I really don't understand what your problem is? I don't want to start asking dumb questions

it does use power, but it pulls it from the usb connection.

I use the standard MS one as well and don't have any problems. Although I think the next time around I'm gonna try to find an off name one or one on ebay or something. They are too expensive for what they really are. Of course, some of what you pay for is the design of it.

Take care,

at&t calls it's modem a 2wire it has 4 ports and is also wireless, but yet i can't figure out how to get the other two ports to open or sense the cable when it is plugged in.

All you should have to do is plug it right up....I had the 2wire with just one ethernet/wireless and I couldn't get it to bridge so I got the new one...This new one with the 4 ports is pre-bridged and works with plug-and-play just fine with the ps3 and xbox 360.
