Wireless Xbox Live?

My friend was telling me that there's a way to play xbox live without hooking it up to your computer. He says there's this wireless device that connects with a satellite and makes it so no internet connection is need. I was wondering. IS THIS TRUE??? And if so, how does it work. And if not, why did Jesus wear sandles.

Re: Wireless Xbox Live?

Sounds like BS to me. Satellite internet connections have latency times of > 500 ms due to speed of light restrictions (signals traveling 22,300 miles up, down, and then back up and down again takes a while). It's for this reason that you can't really play online games and expect to have a low ping.

He was probably talking about this:

That lets you connect your xbox through your trusty Linksys WRT54G (and who doens't have one of those? I have two )

Not Xbox Live but, download Xbox Connect (I think thats what its called) and you can play it through the PC, but its not worth it unless you have broadband.
