Personally i'd suggest something like this Andy http://www.faculty-x.net/homeplug%20value%20range.htm Wifi for online gaming isn't the best way to go. £36.97 with P+P.

lol me too, i have some HD 200mb homeplugs for sale :thumbsup:
they will give you a better wired connection than even wireless N
#3
this is a good deal if you want one but I changed to 200mbps homeplugs a while back and have a 4 port homeplug under the LCD for my 360, laptop and HTPC then 1 port homeplugs where I need them elsewhere so I'd reccomend the homeplug path too.
#4
I bought some homeplugs a while ago from a deal on ebuyer. I highly recommend them.
Was using the old xbox wireless adaptor that wasn't great, cannot comment on the performance of this product but good price!
#5
For those of us more tech savvy, it is considerably cheaper to purchase a wireless router that is compatible with dd-wrt and make it into a wireless bridge, then connect the Xbox 360 to it.
That way your Xbox 360 is connected wirelessly for considerably less dosh.
That's the way I've got it setup for me and it works perfect.
I always felt the Microsoft wireless modules were a complete rip off and considering how most people still have wireless G networks, this is kind of pointless.
However heat and rep added as it is indeed a good price if you must have it :thumbsup:
#6
Or if you have a laptop you can use ICS to share a wireless connection between the laptop and the Xbox. Bit of a bodge job but it does the trick just fine.
#7
haven't voted because i don't know if this is the cheapest around but to me it looks like a complete ripoff when the normal wireless usb adapters are £10-15...long live microsoft :thumbsup:

Wireless = lag

200Mbps homeplugs from ebuyer £50 a pair. Ive removed my xbox wireless adaptor and plan to flog it.

Homeplugs are really impressive
#10
I just bought a long network cable for about £2 and plug it in when I need to access the intrawebs with me Xbox.
#11
£40 for a wireless bridge!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAaaaa.
#12
£40 is a good price for this :)

I've got a couple of these already and just wanted to say that I've seen much improved performance compared to the old wireless-G adapters when streaming media from my PC to the 4 Xbox's I have via my wireless N router.

My 3 kids each have an Xbox in their room to play games/stream movies etc and I just found it easier to use these wireless adapters rather than go down the homeplug/additional wireless router path and then have to power additional electrical items to be able to do the same task, even if they may be a tad quicker. I also think these look better due to having no cable dangling around everywhere ;)
#13
cheapest I've seen it, great find for those who are looking for one.

I previously used the Laptop trick, and found it consistently kicked the xbox offline every 10mins or so (NOT the laptop, as that works perfectly) got one of these and xbox works perfectly all the time every time.

Wireless = lag


a very broad and sweeping statement, which incidentally, is untrue in my case :-D

Actually it's true in all cases.... Wireless over wired introduces latency no matter what set up you have. Wireless is only useful for portability/convenience, if you're connecting 1 static device (360) to another static device (router) then wireless makes no sense. Using wires already in place between those two points is a no brainer.

disagree, I have not noticed any lag whatsoever on my sons xbox360 with wireless n adaptor, I have played games on both the xbox360 as described and with my PS3 which is wired to the router....no noticeable difference.

You are completely missing the point. Yes wireless is slower than wired BUT online gaming does not NEED super fast speeds to work :roll: It makes me laugh when people go on about 200mbps homeplugs when they most likely have less than 10mbps connections and play on a game that only needs about 2mbps to be totally playable :roll:

My wifi adaptor is great, NO LAG, NO WIRES, NO PROBLEMS :thumbsup:

Speed has two meanings in networking terms - you shouldn't confuse throughput with latency. I'm not missing the point at all, wireless introduces more latency to any connection (that's the point).

The point is you would have less lag with a wired connection than an wireless one. You're right in that the MBps of any modern networking solution is more than enough for online gaming - this doesn't mean that all connections are equal. Perhaps you should make sure you understand the point before telling people that they are missing it...:roll:

Absolutely agree that it may not be noticable - it's only a few milliseconds of difference between the two but the difference is there. However if you're willing to pay extra for a wireless N over a wireless G device (as in this deal) then the small almost imperceivable differences should matter to you.

In most cases its true though, as many people seem to think they will have a decent gaming connection when the router they're connected to is 2 floors below them.

I know what you are saying but its a bit like saying that a Ferrari is better than a Ford Focus for getting you to work 1 mile away in a 30mph zone!! Sure it looks better, but do you really need it to survive!?! Truth is that online gaming uses very little resources so unless your connection is very weak the gain to be had with wired is minimal (I used to connect via an ugly patch cable so I have a benchmark, wireless offers no noticeable difference IMHO) :thumbsup:
