I dont know if i am in right frounm so please point me in right direction if i am not.

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.

Why are you so intent on breaking a perfectly good laptop by ripping it apart and soldering things where they aren to meant to go?

Buy an ethernet card that works with something inputwise your laptop already has E.G. a USB to Ethernet adapter 0 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=589
or a PCMCIA adapter http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=588

I find it strange that your Laptop has wireless but does not have a built in NIC for network connectivity anyhow. Or are you just trying to get 2 ethernet connections on one laptop?
