    Hey guys!

    I want to connect my Xbox 360 to live but The Mrs. does not want a black Ethernet cable running through the apartment floor. I did not want to spend $60+ on a stupid wireless adapter and decided to research alternatives. Found a WRT-something option but it sound too complicated and found something on access points on this video.

    Would this be able to work on a Dlink WBR-2310 as a Client and a Netgear WGT624 v4?

    Not all routers support what he is describing. Unfortunately, I do not know if the ones you mentioned do. You can look up their features as well as I can.

    Do you have a laptop or wireless computer near the Xbox?

    Have you considered running it under the carpet?

    That's if you have carpet of course.

    There used to be a lot of really cheap ways to get the xbox360 connected to the internet, but it seems like all of them are not up in the $60+ range.

    I remember a good alternative was using ethernet over powerlines bridges, but even those are now $30 a piece, and you need a pair, I picked up a set 6 or 8 months ago for $30...

    Anyway: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833156159

    That should give you the bridge mode you are looking for, that was described in the video, and it about half the price of the official xbox adaptor.
