Hi kidz! I know a lot of you are Xbox types or will be getting one in a few weeks. You might be considering going wireless, which will require an adapter, which runs around $100 for the official wireless adapter that you hook up to your system and you can then connect to the net. I was in a training class for home networking and one of my friends had a wireless adapter she uses on her Xbox and also works on pretty much any other device (blue ray, computer, direct tv) from 2wire (a solid quality company) that runs $20 and is easy to program to run with your gateway or router. Just letting you know, I'm not associated with any of the companies involved but $20 is a lot better than $100.

Actually the answer to the problem usually is given as get a PS3. 100 feet of cat five is about as far as it should go....todays lesson, sticky static IP's!

MagicSanta - You've got that right! I'm running 100ft of Cat 5 to my entertainment center where it goes into a switch that connects my DVR, PS3, Xbox 360, and Apple TV.

I actually do have wireless, but I try to limit how much I put on it... I use wireless for the Wii, the two household laptops, and the three household iPhone's.

I have my network laser printer set on a Static IP. Everything else on DHCP. (I set the lowest possible address to one above my printer to avoid conflicts).

I was very happy when the PS3 started natively supporting DIVX / XVID. Now I can stream my *COMPLETELY LEGAL* videos from my desktop to my PS3 without any weird transcoding.
