Re: Help please!
You can make some of the newer devices into hotspots, but from what you are asking, it sounds like you want to use it as an access point where the phone is just a signal extender. Is that correct?
If your phone is receiving a wifi signal that is strong, i would have to say your xbox should be receiving the same signal strength if they are in the same area. Therefore, there may be something wrong with your xbox wifi that is interfering with the data speed. May just be a setting. If your NAT is not set to open on the xbox, that can slow it down a lot.
If you have the old cream xbox with a plug in wifi adapter, i would have to say that the adapter could be bad, or the software (drivers) could have issues. It is also a "G" connection, not an "N" like most newer devices. That alone is a difference in speed.
I also believe that if you use your phone as a hotspot, it uses the cell radio, not wifi. There are ways around this with rooting and the posts can be found here on this forum or over on xdadevelopers dot com.
