What's the Network controller capability?
Wonder if MS updated the Xbox 360 Slim NIC to GigaEthernet capabilities. What the network controller chip id of the new console?
The slim edition of the classic Xbox 360 with a 250GB HDD and built-in Wi-Fi. Repair requires intricate prying and special tools.
I tested it with my router (NETGEAR WNDR 3700 Gigabit/Dual Band N router (A/B/G/N). the NIC only tested at 100Mbps. It is not a Gigabit NIC at all. What also does not make sense is that the WIFI card is not dual band. It only works on th b/G/N (2.4ghz) band. The 5.8 ghz A/N band is much more suitable for media so this is big time mistake on Micro$oft's part.
The add on card they sell for the old 360 is A/B/G/N compatible, go figure what the &@$% they were thinking with the built in wifi card and NIC on the XBOX 360 S.
Microsoft and fast reliable networking - now that's a silly idea only dreamed of by fools.
I use Virgin Media cable for my internet - 100Mb - so already the slow network adapter on the x-box can't give me my full internet bandwidth. Wireless is a waste of space unless you can use 5Ghz range.
Microsoft need to wake-up and smell the future, overlooking the fact that in real terms networking speeds are quoted to include both directions - so 100Mb in reality is only 50Mb not taking in to account any deduction for overhead.
Not very good and so not future proof.
