    Alright i have a D-LINK AIR 2.4GHz Wireless Cardbus Adapter, and I am trying to find a way to connect it to an ethernet cable to connec tto my xbox 360. I have taken apart a laptop to get its cardbus, thinking that there would be some wires that i could try to splice and solder. 40 screws later i realized that tthe cardbus connects directly into the motherboard.

    So if anyone has any idea how i could get the internet from my cardbus adapter into my xbox it would be greatly appreciated.

    you need to either buy a wireless network adapter for your xbox360 (assuming your internet router/modem supports wireless) or you need to just run an ethernet cable directly from your xbox to your internet router/modem to get internet access on your xbox 360.
