    Currently in the process of getting a unit mod'd & HD upgraded.

    I will be going to wireless router setup @ home for internet (RR) within the month, that said, whats the best way to achieve xbox ~ pc transfers (cross-over & router connections will be unavailable, based on locations inside the house, can not route it.)..

    Advice?...

    You COULD route it. You could get a wireless router (like linksys) and get a Xbox wireless adapter.

    Thanks for the link..

    One thing.. I've seen 54 mbps & 108 mbps ones.

    Is there an advantage as far as file transfers ? ie... from xbox to pc.. using wireless...

    or from one pc to another..

    thanks...

    transfers will be very slow using wireless...i occasionally use a notebook with a wireless card to ftp to my xbox...and it takes forever compared to using the pc that is directly connected to the router.

    here is an example:(xbox is connect to router cat5cable)
    I transfer lets say Bourne Suprmeacy (1gig .avi file)

    notebook with wireless card to xbox
    500kb/s takes about 55-60min to transfer

    pc connected to directly to router to xbox
    7,000kb/s takes about 5-7min

    if you go everything wireless i think you will be very upset about how long things will take to transfer...that is i guess if you plan on sending large files over the network...if i were you i would do my best to make sure you have your xbox connected to your router and a pc connected to that same router...otherwise you are in for a long wait.

    Live is hard enough to set up with wires. Good luck with the wireless thing though - should be really cool if you get it working. I heard that most Netgear routers are highly compatable.
