Hello,

first off i would like to say that what im about to ask is something that i learned and heard about. im learning to use a router to a router wireless connection for an xbox 360 to get onto xbox live. For those that do not get what im saying is that instead of buying a wirless adapter for $100 at bestbuy or something, i learned that you can use 2 routers to make a connection to connect to xbox live. So my question is how can i use 2 routers to make a connection to my xbox 360? my uncle try to help me do this do but he said i dont have the right kind of router to do it but i think it can be done with the one i have. i have a main router already and a secondary router as well. i tried to resart my 2nd router and turn it into an access point to see if that work. i think it will work but every time i put the router in my 360 is saying that the network is not connected right or the ip adress is wrong. i think i have but i just cant get the network to connect automatically! if you need info on the 2nd router im using here it is:
model: belkin54g
Wlan/lan mac address: 00173F56E3AA
Wan Mac address: 00173F56E3AB
serial #: 20064206169
ic: 3623A-F5D7230C
ver. 6002
model #: F5D723O-4
FCC ID: K7SF5D723OC

If any one can please help me do this step by step i would greatly appreciate it because i tried figuring this out like forever and im getting annoyed with it! Im getting to the point to go buy the 360 wireless adapter but i dont feel like wasting a $100's on a little thing such as that if there is a cheaper way to getting on xbox live!

Thnx!

This is the link to instructions for modifying your router. Please check if your router is on the list that can use this mod. Please note that if you do it wrong or have an incompatible router this might turn the router in JUNK.
