Default Xbox controller :(

Aww man! This stupid controller I can't get used to it. How do you guys play games like keyboard and mouse !!! I just got my xbox and the kinect part is really fun, but last night I popped in bioshock 2 and WTF I played for over an hour and I'm still fumbling around. Especially with up and down movement / looking. I tried inverting the axis which I thought I needed to do but no.

Any tips?

You don't. You play all FPS on PC and all games that don't require accuracy you play on console.

It's very difficult at first. But it gets easier with practice.

I have found that these help quite a bit too.

They give you more range and make finer movements easier.

Yea some people play a LOT and you can really tell. I find that in COD the reason I die the majority of the time is because I am not quick enough to aim and hit them because I haven't mastered the controller itself (I don't have that problem with mouse and keyboard on PC lol). That can be extremely frustrating.

As for your network, manual network setup should enable you to get all your settings correct for any wireless network, including SSID, encryption type, password, IP address, subnet, gateway, DNS, etc.
