the fon router for 360??
I just got a xbox 360 for xmas from the best freebie owner in the world!
I have the fon router hacked with the hacked fireware, does anyone have instructions on how to setup the fon router to work with my linksys as a access point hooked up to the 360??
Honestly, wireless Live sucks, better going ethernet.
ok i shall just use a long cable )
No, that's not true.
I use(d) the wireless all the time and never had any problems.
It was great because every time I would bring my Xbox 360 to my sisters house, friends house, or cousins house, it would automatically connect me to live.
I never had any connection problems either.
That's just my experience though...
As far as the fon goes, I tried some of the guides that explain how to get it to work as a network adapter, but I never had any luck. I attributed it to the WPA I have on my wireless, but I wasn't willing to open up my network to anyone for that.
well I hacked my FON when I first got it, i thought it might be good instead of running a long wire but even running a long wire isn't a problem if it will produce better connection?
Running a CAT5 is going to get you 100MBps, at best, 802.11G gets you 54MBps (I think).
Really either way wireless will give you plenty of bandwidth as your internet connection is bound to be the bottleneck in the whole situation. If a long cord isn't a problem to do, I'd go that route as it's just more reliable in general.
Basically, hack your fon and flash it with dd-wrt firmware. It is much better. Then, just follow a dd-wrt guide on the internet on setting up a wireless bridge with the fon.
someone asked about this before. I'm pretty sure you can use the router as a bridge to your base station.

yeah I hacked it the day I got it with the dd-wrt firmware, works great.
But I just decided to run a cable from my linksys to the xbox, so far so good. When it's rainy out i'll try the FON as a bridge i guess
