In the "Looking at XNA Part Two" video on Channel 9, Frank mentioned that deploying an XNA application to the 360 is only supported via a wired connection(No wireless). Does anyone know if it's possible to have the 360 connect to the internet with the wireless adapter and connect to my local lan on the ethernet at the same time

If you have a LAN in place why would you use a wireless adapter for the Internet connection

The internal lan I'm talking about would just be the PC and the 360. Right now I don't have ethernet in my room(I just moved into this place and the apartment's cable modem is about 50 ft away. If I could deploy to the 360 without having to pick up 2 50" ethernet cords that would be great. If not then I'll just bite the bullet and get them

A wired connection is recommended, not required.

Although Frank was explicit about the wired support, we've since found that it works reasonably well. For anyone who is using a wireless adapter with their Xbox 360, try it with wireless first. If the results are really poor, then use a wire.

Basically, if your signal strength is good then you won't notice any difference. If you have a brick wall and a microwave running between your Xbox 360 and your router, you will probably get very frustrated at how slow things get (deploying files and debugging).

Hi Stephen,

What would I do about this

Three red lights is usually pretty serious!

Please start a new thread with this question, and provide details about what you did before the lights went red (did you download XNA Game Launcher, did you run it, did you deploy any games, etc). I assume you've powered off the console and powered it back on If not, please do so. Also, please describe what happens when you turn it back on.

I started a new post and emailed the xbox 360 customer service. Will wait to see what else is going on.

It's probably more than 50, I just haven't measured.

Most apartments aren't even 50 feet deep from end to end.
