4. File-Sharing Annoyances > NETWORK ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS

NETWORK ENTERTAINMENT CENTERS

CONNECT YOUR NETWORK TO GAMING DEVICES

The Annoyance:

We have an Xbox that everyone enjoys. Is there a way to connect the device to our network?

The Fix:

If you have gamers in the house, look for game adapters that let you attach PlayStation 2, Xbox, or GameCube devices to the network. Most network equipment manufacturers offer these adapters, and many of them support wireless communication.

Installation might seem a bit complicated, but that’s because you can’t configure the game adapter unless it’s connected to a computer via Ethernet cable. After you’ve configured the adapter, you can remove it from the computer and attach it to the game console. Complete directions come with the device.
