| People occasionally ask me about removing the Wi-Fi network adapter from their Xbox 360 to use it in an ordinary computer. If you are using the official Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter
, this simply won't work. You cannot use Microsoft's 360 adapter on your computer for the same reason that ordinary USB adapters don't work on the Xbox
- the needed device driver support is lacking.
If you are using a generic USB wireless game adapter
or Ethernet-to-wireless bridge
(like I do), then of course you can swap the adapter between your Xbox and computer with no problem.
