Boost wifi signal for Xbox 360 Slim

#1Twizz810Posted 2/10/2012 10:40:12 AM
How can I boost the WiFi signal to my Xbox 360 slim? I can get a signal from my neighbor but only have 1 bar. I just want a good enough signal to download updates until I can afford to pay off my Comcast bill in about 2 months.

Ask your neighbor to take his router and move it closer to your house.

Move the 360 as close as possible to your neighbors house. Then, go and get a job so you don't have to leech off of other people anymore.

If you have the old adapter with the 2 antenae sticking out of it, you can put empty Pringles cans over them in order to boost reception.

I have no idea why this works, but it does.

Buy the wifi adapter for the old 360, buy a looooooong usb cable, move it around and see where you get the best signal.
