I got one similar to this last year (Linksys) for £29 from comet, which was a decent price and it worked well with my old Xbox on Virgin cable for a month or two until I got my 360. Then I swapped it over and transferred my live subscription over and it carried on working great. Only problem I had was a loose wire on the aerial that wasn't soldered properly but that was easily fixed as I got someone at work to solder it. Not sure what the reliabilty is of this Belkin adaptor is but this price is a steal when you compare it to the official one. They are pretty easy to set up too, you just plug them into your pc to configure them (set up network details, passwords etc) then remove it and plug it into the Xbox360 ethernet port and connect to Live. I dont think I even had to change any settings on the 360, they are set to automatic. The only advantage I can see the official one has is you dont need another plug socket as it USB powered and its a bit smaller and neater and I suppose you don't have to configure it via a PC beforehand, but none of that is worth the extra £35 is it? Anyway, just follow the instructions and you should be ok :thumbsup:

WHAT it supports WPA, I had one of these a few months and never used it(due to losing the power supply lol) but at the time it wasnt Vista or WPA compatable

I have mine attached to my original xbox (with XBMC) and connected to my WPA-protected home wireless. It streams music and videos perfectly :)
#10
Guess I will have another look for the adaptor then, still isnt Vista compatable I think so will just go to the local library a few minute from house and do it there.
#11
Thanks for your help :) im gonna give it a try if i can get one lol.

You can use this if you wire it straight to your 360 by connecting this to your cable modem.
If you want wireless from this router to the 360 you will need to buy the official xbox wireless adapter to go with it (they are extortionate and no other on the market).
The other way may be the cheapest way to make your 360 wireless and that would be to buy 2 of these. Connect the one to the modem to use as a normal router. The connect the other to the 360 and use as a bridge. Not sure if it can be used as a bridge but most wireless routers are able, but setup might be hard work.

I had one of these with latest firmware installed and it did work on vista.

have you got a wireless router.

if its not secured you may be able to plug and play not sure.

otherwise connect to pc put in settings then connect to 360. connection is done via a standard ethernet cable and the 360 thinks its wired not wireless.
#15
yea theyre brill for the 360 ive been using one now for about 5 months i paid the same for it of fleabay and haven't had a single problem, easy to set up and doesnt lose setings when turned off or anything

You need to have a wireless router connected already into your home line for broadband doesn't matter what make it is as i use a netgear, the actual belking wireless adaptor only provides wireless internet for ethernet equiped equipment eg if you have a pc without a wireless card u can just plug into ethernet port when its set up and it automatically will work as i have set up a few with mine.

You cannot plug in your phone line for example as you need a different kind of router, its still wireless and without a hastle, i bought mine 6 months ago as my router is downstairs and i would need about a 30 meter ethernet cable just to connect into the back of my wireless router, the official adaptor is a con, i have this one set up using xp pro to configure its settings to use my wireless network, once connected via ethernet cable and you run the program (setup) it will automatically find the device, then you have to enter your chosen mode aswell as your wireless network channel and SSID and Encryption settings.
#17
there's also an easier way that all you need is an ethernet cable and a wireless computer or laptop as i used to do it, you simply plug the xbox 360 into the laptop in my case and turn on (ICS) internet connection sharing, you don't even have to bridge connections as such, just choose wirless device and choose share internet with such and such device check the Ip set xbox 360 to auto detect and your good to go, worked a treat but isn't the best if your trying to save power and there's no need for your computer to be on, although Media streaming is a heck of alot faster.
#18
I gave up trying to get a stable wireless connection for my xbox (might have been the dodgy netgear products) and ended up getting a homeplug device and have never looked back. I don't think wireless technology is quite there yet. But this a great deal if you're into that.
#19
Went into Staples and coz we bought 2 at the same time the geezer on the counter gave us the units for £11 each!! :) Voted DAMN hot! :P
#20
I just called my local staples and they said that they do not sell them anymore.

I may still just pop in on the off chance that they have one in their bargain bin!
#21
Voted hot, except I won't be getting any, because I have been using Dell 2300's with DD-WRT 3rd party firmware, to basically make them the same as my Linksys WRT54GS cable router. Got one in use and a further 4 from eBay, roughly £10 - £15 each.

I stream media wirelessly through to my XBox XBMC.
#22
Anyone know what stores still have these available? Hopefully some in London will.

That would be Netgear for you, not the wireless technology. I use a Buffalo WLI-TX4-G54HP (£32 on Ebuyer) with my xbox. Only difference is it has 4 ports so might be better option for someone who has PC and xbox/ps3 near eachother or if you want to utilise more ports.

does anyone know if this will work as a wireless print server. I have a canon mp460?

If your printer is a network printer (with a network port), then yes, it should work.
#26
Hi
would this also work the same way on a Play station 2.

thanks
#27
Should work on the PS2 with no problems (it mentions Xbox, PS2 and Gamecube on the back of the box)
#28
I got the last one from the croydon staples today. I have to say this just does not work with WEP 128bit. I tried using the wizard they give you on the cd and went into the setting manually. In the end I had to change to WPA2 to work, which might be a problem for me because some of the other things that connect to my router have issues with WPA2. :(
#29
Rang up and managed to reserve 2, one for me and my brother, drove hour & a half to the Altringham branch, and I was told "... they have just been sold"!!! The store assistant had just left, and someone had magically came in and brought 2 that were reserved, sounded like the assistant got them instead....really angry and the store manager didn't know his **** from his elbow, he was useless.

....good deal but Staples=useless bunch of liars
#30
Went to Swindon and Newbury today, none in stock.. In fact the store assistant checked the computer and said there were none left anywhere in the UK.
#31
Picked one up this afternoon.

Having trouble getting the WPA enabled on it though can anyone help????
#32
I take it you've updated the firmware.

Using the 192.168.x.x route instead of using their supplied software seemed to be the best option I found for changing the settings enabling wpa.

To do that you manually configure your network interface to use an IP address in the 192.168.2.0 to 192.168.2.254 range and then enter the address 192.168.2.255 into your browser. You can then firmware update, change settings etc.
#33
Yeah I am sure I tried this but the only options I had were 64 or 128 bit encryption still, no WPA!

I hope I have not wasted my money.

Can anyone screen shot there setup page showing where the WPA is stated please?
#34
I have just read a post elsewhere saying that the browser page does not work that well in Firefox.

This may be why I could not see the WPA bit. I will give it a go tonight.
#35
Do not worry any more. I was just being a dope. I have found the WPA encryption option in one of the drop downs and it is all working like a dream.

Downloading game updates and streaming music and video to the 360 without any pesky wires all over the lounge!
