A couple weeks ago we found details on Xbox Kinect’s pricing and we went through what was included with a purchase of Kinect. One of the items that is included with Kinect was a WiFi Extension Cable. Well, nobody actually knew what this was, so we contacted Microsoft and asked them ourselves. Here is what they said:
The Wi-Fi extension cable included with the Kinect Sensor for Xbox 360 is for connecting to an external Wi-Fi adapter. This allows the use of a dual-band connection. The Kinect sensor and Xbox 360 S have their own built-in Wi-Fi, but the extension cable will be necessary for configuring a dual-band connection.
From what I get from this, the extension cable is for configuring a ad-hoc connection between the Xbox 360 S and the Kinect? I asked for further clarification from Microsoft, let me know what you think.
