I am trying to get live and I really am short on money right now. I am pretty sure that I need a new router because my Netgear will not let the IMCP packet through, I figured to get a Dlink to get that problem fixed, they always seem to work for Xbox. The other problem I have is that I can't hard wire a connection due to the area of the internet coming in and the location of the 360. Can I use my laptop and do internet connection sharing with a crossover cable to keep from buying a wireless adapater? I had a wireless adapter at one point and it worked but I believe it was the router giving problems.
