DIY Xbox 360 Wireless Gaming On The Cheap

If you're the proud new owner of an Xbox 360, you might have come to the realization that Microsoft is hornswaggling you on wireless connectivity. No wi-fi built in, no $99 wireless adapter, no problem.

Popular Science points us to a quick and dirty DIY option for unwiring your Xbox 360, using the freeware DD-WRT — and an outdated or unused extra wireless router, of course. It's a pretty straightfoward process — buy this, download that, install the thing, but your IP address in the little box — but handy for those of us who balk at outrageously priced accessories.

With the cost to you being as low as zero dollars, should you have a back up router collecting dust, we'd think it's a decent enough solution.
