Alright, the wife and I have been shopping around trying to figure out what the best scenario would be for my game room now that other things are starting to fall into place. We've been looking at some of the Black Friday ads on-line and I believe I'm going to try for one of two Olevia TVs early next Friday morning. That out of the way, I'll finally be able to take my 360 off the computer monitor and hook it up to a better TV. Problem is my router is upstairs (over the garage) and the game room is down stairs (beside the garage). Right now I use a really long ethernet cord for my Xbox Live connection and it works like a charm. That however won't really be an option once I move the console down stairs. I've been considering MS' wireless adapter (despite the price), but some of the reviews I've been reading haven't been too positive when it comes to playing FPS games on-line. Granted I'm not a Halo 3 junkie, but I do enjoy the occassional big team slayer match. I also read that movie downloads can take a long time too. I know that a wired connection will always be better/stronger than a wireless connection, but I wanted to get feedback from users of MS' wireless network adapter. My current setup doesn't allow me to download & watch movies (monitor not HDCP compatible) and it there isn't much room for others to play since the console is in my "toy office". I guess I'm at a crossroads here. Only other option (that I can think of) is that I'd have is to move my router back down stairs and just plug in the ethernet cord when I want to play Xbox. I say that because the ethernet port is on one wall while the TV & game consoles are on the opposite wall...and there is a large walkway into the formal dining room so running a long cord would be very, how shall I say, ugly. Moving the router would also mean that the internet signal on the computer upstairs would be weak. Can't figure out why though that my wife can connect to the 'net using her laptop anywhere in the house and she always gets a strong signal. Guess I don't understand all of this new wireless technology as well as I thought I did! So, if anyone uses MS' wireless adapter or has a similiar set up like mine (router upstairs, 360 downstairs) please pass along your advice, experience and stories - whether they're good or bad! Thanks!
