    I've got an extra WiFi PC card. Is there anyway to adapt it so that I can use it to put my xbox onto the wireless network.

    It would basically be some sort of box that would have a slot for a pc card and a ethernet plug..... maybe a powerplug too.

    Open your XBox. See any PCI slots?!

    I know the xbox doesnt have a PCI slot.... what I'm wondering is does there exist a dongle that has a PCI slot on one end and a eithernet plug on the other. I know they make a WIFI radio that plugs into the eithernet on the xbox. But I dont have one of those, I have a PC card WIFI radio. I'm just trying to use what I've got to put my xbox on the network.

    Oh. Gotcha.

    Well, I'd guess that the adapter cable/housing itself would be a big paercentage of the cost...a WL card can be had for under $40.

    Have you checked the sites that sell the full XBox WL product to see if they also sell a kit w/o the radio card?

    Yeah, I knew about the xbox product. I just figured internally it was the same as what I had. I also through thay maybe somebody had devised an adapter to use a PCI card on a machine that doesnt have a PCI slot. Guess not. Thanks anyway.
