Dell Mini as an Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter - 03-12-2009, 05:03 PM
[news-img:3l8gb7iz]/images/news/xboxwireless.jpg[/news-img:3l8gb7iz]One thing about moving into my new house is that I no longer can have my Xbox 360 right next to my router to connect it online. There are many options to connect an Xbox 360 using wireless to an internet connection, I just so managed to hook my Xbox up to my Dell Mini 9 and configure it to share the wireless connection with the Xbox, thus using my Mini as a wireless bridge!
This is an extremely useful baring in mind how much Microsoft charge for the official wireless adapter.

FWIW: Upgrading the Mini's stock 802.11g Mini-PCIe adapter to draft-N WLAN should help w/streaming HD wirelessly using Dunhamzzz's guide that is if your gateway router happens to be draft-N as well!

Any dd-wrt capable router can be used to bridge over wifi. Heck, I even used a low-end zyxel i got for $10 A/R to bridge in my parents house.
These cost a lot less, and draw way less power than a mini 9.
P.S. An alternate to look at if you have coaxial cabling are the MOCA bridges (such as the Motorola nim-100). You can occasionally find these on e-bay, and they will bridge ~100mbps over the existing coaxial wiring in the house!
