Xbox One

Hi there, 

 

I've just bought an xbox one but it requires an internet connection, to connect/play and I wont have internet in this house for a while, is it possible to connect to the internet with an xbox one on a vodem? if so how do I do this? 

 

Thanks for your time.

Hi there, I don't think this will be possible, because the mobile stick has some software that needs to be installed to an operating system before it will function. An XBOX doesn't have the required OS, and to be honest, your online gaming experience will be pretty lackluster over mobile broadband, unless you have fabulous 3G/4G coverage Smiley Sad

 

@sebastianbd @Lucas - can you confirm/deny?

Oh wait hang on, I reckon you could use Pocket Wifi instead of a Vodem. That should work, if your XBOX One can connect via Wifi. Smiley Happy

Hi All,

 

No I doubt you would be able to use a vodem directly into a xbox to use the internet, the Xbox would not have the required drivers / software in order to use the vodem.

 

Lon has mentioned what I was going to suggest! Pocket wifi would definitely be the best way to go if you are wanting to run Xbox over mobile data &colonSmiley Wink
