    System linking problems!!?

    Its a bit of a long story but here goes...

    Sat night I had a friend come over to my house to Play through Gears of War co-op.
    I borrowed my bro's 360 for this - with the idea of system linking the consoles nice and simple - playing one on the tv and the other through my monitor.
    So I connected the 360s via the ethernet cable and fired them up. Tried to join a system link game and the damn things wouldn't/couldn't find each other. I tried fiddling around in various ways (connecting each 360 to a router - directly connecting them etc). So how the hell do you get 2 360s to system link...? Anyone know?!

    To get it to work;
    I had to plug my 360 into my modem-router.
    Connect my bro's 360 to my PC to use the wireless connection to my modem-router.
    And play each other over xbox live - even though we were sitting right next to each other. (sucked)

    easy...use a "crossover" ethernet cable.

    the cable that came with the 360 is a "patch" cable which is
    meant to be connected like:-

    360>ethernet modem or
    360>router / hub / switch

    Yeah that's what I would have thought, unless you can get special wireless adapters or something, I know you can to connect 360 to router.. dunno about 360 to 360 mind you.

    you can use the official M$ wifi adaptor to connect two 360's too.

    in the network settings simply choose "ad-hoc" as opposed to
    "infrastructure".

    you can also use 3rd party Wireless Gaming Bridges too. Linksys, D-Link,
    Netgear and Zoom make these bits of kit. I have a linksys 11Mbps wifi
    bridge which has a button especially to link two consoles...obviously you
    need two bridges, but it's relatively straight forward.
