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Science points us to a quick and dirty DIY option for unwiring your Xbox 360, using the freeware DD-WRT โ€” and an outdated or unused extra wireless router, of course. It's a pretty straightfoward process โ€” buy this, download that, install the thing, but your IP address in the little box โ€” 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.
