    Just a quick question:

    I have a wireless router in my house for my laptop and wii but what i want to know is, can i use my wireless router to run a wired connection to my 360? I assume I can but I want to make sure before i run out and purchase the cables.

    I have a D-Link DI-624 router. Its got wires running from my modem to the router, and from the router to the PC, thats it.

    I assume to get the wired connection i would just have to purchase a long enough

    RJ-45 / Cat-5 / Cat-6 ( not sure which one)

    Plug it into any open port on my wireless router and run it to my 360 and done?

    Am i right, is this even possible, can anyone help me?

    I don't know about the 360 but at the back (depending on your router) there may be some output LAN connnections and you should just be able to take a LAN cable and plug it into the back (depending on router) of the router and into the 360, whether it has an input LAN Connection i don't know but i think it would. Of course you would have to have a long enough LAN to fit accordingly.

    Doesn't the 360 have a Wireless capabillities? Tisk, Tisk!

    I cannot comment for sure on your specific router. But I do know of router that can do it.
