Coaxial wired house, how do I setup my xbox downstairs?
Posted 01 November 2009 - 08:49 PM
So the setup downstairs is there is multiple coaxial inputs that go upstairs. I'm thinking if I was able to plug into those then I'd ride the internet down from them modem upstairs, or at least that's what the landlord says.
Problem is how do I do that? I can't finding anything online that seems to give me a solid answer. It seems my only options are to either get the wireless add-on or get a wireless access point for the router.

To be honest it's all hard to understand, I just wish there was a coaxial to ethernet cable and I could just plug that into my xbox. Sadly I don't think it works that way.

Yeah, I think that is the way it is with your whole post. I've never heard of running ethernet through coaxial cables.
Only things I can think to do in your situation is to either do wireless or buy a massive ethernet cord.

Otherwise - run a cable or buy a wireless adapter.

I'm leaning towards getting the microsoft adapter. I tested the connection speeds for downstairs with my laptop while the router was upstairs and it was just blazing.. almost 20mg download. My hope is the Xbox Adapter is faster then the standard pci card slot?

20 Milligrams? That's fast.
Damn ambien was taking affect by then. heh 20mb is obviously what I was going for.

Buy another wireless router and flash it with ddwrt firmware to turn it into a client bridge. That's how I get internet to a 360 and a computer upstairs while the modem and main wireless router are in my room downstairs.
I'd do this if I were the OP and were concerned with the cost since you can get a wireless router for cheaper than a adapter.
