How to connect an X-Box 360 to a wireless network.

Is it possible to buy a second wireless router (I currently have a Linksys WRT54GC), set the second router near the 360, and then connect the Ethernet cable from the 2nd router to the 360?

Good text on home networking...

I am pretty computer savvy but have little understanding of networking windows PCs (for home use). Using a Linksys wireless router and the install wizard I was able to network my home computers, but if something goes wrong I'm lost. Can someone point me to a good print or electronic reference that will provide the principles and background on PC home networking and enable me (with a little effort) to understand the setup I now have. I am interested in such topics as network security, file sharing, printer sharing, adding or removing a computer from the network, and accessing my network from my office.

Discreet job inquiry?

I'm employed, but looking for a new job. I'd like to apply for a job with a cool company, but my current company has a content partnership with them. Someone I work closely with manages this business relationship, and I fear it might get back to him somehow if I were to apply. Can I discreetly apply for this position without risking anyone at my current job finding out?

How do I setup LAN network to redirect all internet requests?

I recently setup a wireless/wired network for a hotel to be used by about 75 guests. It was simply a matter of daisy chaining a few Netgear switches (JFS516) from the ISP's DSL modem/router and then connecting a few Netgear Access points (WG602) with alternating channels on each floor (one per floor). DHCP is controlled by the router. Everything worked great. However, now the hotel has requested that the network be upgraded to include a page that intercepts all internet requests and I'm looking for tips on how to do that? [more inside]

Did The Work Firewall Nazis Strike Back?

Warning: Networking Geekery Ahead Once upon a time I was able to use VNC viewer (the binary executable, not the java viewer) on my work Windows XP PC to connect to VNC server on my home Windows XP PC via Port 443. This allowed me to view and control my home desktop in a window on my work PC and thereby do an end run around the restrictive web filter/firewall at work. It was slow, but it was still useable and reliable.

I stopped using it for a couple of weeks when I lost my USB key. I recently found it and tried my VNC connection again from work. It doesn't work now. [more inside]
