Setting up a home network while also getting a wifi signal from elsewhere?
Posted on 2009-04-28
Problem with Custom Desktop running Vista Ultimate 32 bit.
I access a separate unsecured network with a usb adapter (DWA-160) to connect to the internet.
I would also like to use a separate router (DIR-655) to share media from my desktop to my Xbox 360. Both the desktop and the xbox are wired to the router to assure quicker buffering.
For some reason, I am unable to share media to the xbox while the usb adapter (DWA-160) is plugged in. Also I must make sure both the desktop and xbox are plugged in to LAN ports.
To connect to the web, I have to unplug the desktop from the router and plug in the DWA-160.
I would really like to be able to keep both the DWA 160 plugged in and connected to the web while I share media to the xbox. Thanks
