    Hey everyone, I have a linksys wireless router don't know the number though. I know how to use this router, and I got everything setup, but I can't view other peoples connections in my dorm room, only mine. The other thing that I wan't to do, is to be able to plug my xbox into the router and be able to access the campus network to play halo. Currently I have to unplug the router with my computer on it and then plug the xbox into the wall where the router was. I know that there is a way to do this. I don't know what settings to use though. It is currently set to gateway, do I need it to be on router mode? I tried putting it in that mode once, but it doesn't work, and then it won't even recognise anything or connect to the net. If someone could tell me how to set this up, I would appreciate it, so I don't have to go buy a hub.

    Thanks,
    Nick

    Yeah... Cuz your router is doing NATing... Placing you on a different network than the people in your dorm... Thus you can't see them on the network.

    There are a few possibilities for making this work. Some depend on how the campus net is setup.

    You should be able to make this work with a hub... Or if you can set the linksys to act like a hub...
