ASDA Wrexham had five of these all reduced to £25. Not online though. They were the N ones in the new style boxes.

Still too expensive, would be cheaper to setup a wireless bridge or homeplug

Can you point me in the right direction as to where I'd get any of them ?
I was on the lookout for a cheap wireless adaptor for my 2nd 360 which is upstairs and if what you've mentioned is less than £25 I'll be well chuffed.

The price of the wireless adaptors on Xbox 360s is a joke. You can't even get the G version cheap on ebay. A wireless router acting as a bridge is under a tenner, so wtf is the reason for this costing so much? There are no cheap unofficial versions either - some sort of protection preventing it maybe?

Yeah I've always wanted one of these but price is a joke.
I just use a good old 10m ethernet cable tucked under the carpet!

Nearly all Xbox accessories are over priced. The HDD are a prime example. The official USB sticks were a rip off too.

Use homeplugs better throughput and not compressed. I can stream media and watch skyplayer on mine using pair of Tplink homeplugs.

voted hot coz this is a good price (if you can find it), but it is still FAAAR too much more than what it should cost. These things shouldn't be going for more than 10-15 quid, I have no idea why they aren't coming down in price (especially as the new 360s have wireless built in)

I have seen unofficial versions of the wireless n adaptor from Argos, but they're not exactly a great price at £39.99.

At the moment I use 85Mbps powerline adaptors which work flawlessly. I bought mine when they were on offer, but at the moment will cost around £30 delivered. :(

As jpxdude has suggested you can also run dd-wrt firmware on a compatible router (it requires a bit of know-how) to get it to act as a wireless client - basically receive wireless signals and relay to its ethernet ports where you can plug in your xbox. I think the cheapest compatible router with an alright rating is the TP-Link TL-W741ND. I've found this at Amazon for £16.67 delivered. I've just ordered one so will let you know when it arrives if I can get it to work as a wireless client. http://www.amazon.co.uk/TP-Link-TL-WR741ND-150Mbps-Wireless-Router/dp/B002LBE7YG/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=computers&qid=1306056020&sr=8-2

For anyone interested you can check if your old router (you'll still need a separate router to connect everything up to the internet) is compatible here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/site/support/router-database
And here is dd wrt's wiki on wireless bridge mode: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Bridge

Hope that helps :)

To be honest this isn't a bad deal. When they were £50, I sold my old xbox 360 and got the £160 XBOX Slim deal from Tescos a few months back because I felt that I'd sooner get a new console than waste £50 on one of these.. Wireless bridges etc. were no good, couldn't have two xboxes on the network (one wired, one wireless) without one permanently being strict NAT and believe me I tried everything to fix the one connected to the bridge, even ran DD-WRT firmware on it. If you've only got one xbox you might be in luck if you can permanently port forward the things you need.

Ditched the bridge and now whichever one goes on (or both at the same time) have an open NAT.

anyone confirm this is nationwide? been needing one of these!

You can also just wireless bridge from a laptop, fairly easy and free.

Just follow this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Yt5IrIh8sA. You'll have it done by the end of the video.

As a price comparison to the RRP this is a deal, surely? For some... probably most people, getting the product that just plugs and plays (and dare I say it, looks part of same kit) is the most important thing.

Yes, of course the rrp is a rip off... but then again what do you expect? Microsoft and the other console manufacturers make money not on the basic machine, but on the software and the peripherals. If looked at that way, it's just the same kind of 'rip off' that say, car manufacturers do when charging you +£300 for a replacement cd player.

I'm voting hot because it's about 40% cheaper than the standard price.

PS - actually very impressed with Asda's gaming reductions at the mo. Bought Heavy Rain, Kinect, DJ Hero 2 and Da Blob 2 at discount with plenty of other titles to suit various tastes... nice one!

now thats dirt cheap imo. even ebay prices are more expensive.

seen these 2 weeks ago at local asda 55 then rolled back for 2 weeks so far at ~39.97, well was last night anyway.

id love kinect for 80 then this for 20 for 100 package deal. didnt keep track of other thead about £80 kinect, all asdas? local one here is small and they dont do kinect deal, only kinect plus 2 games ~120.

and as for bridges and other work arounds if you dont know somethings then you can run into nat problems if you dont know what to do. i got PC on .11n then old xbox on that while slim on N. of course my pc has to be on when im on my old xbox.

agree above, homeplugs or official N adaptors are best for ease of use.

i diverse

great price if you can get it, and if you can, get extra and put on ebay?

I bought one of these for £35 earlier in the year. It saves the hassle of homeplugs and stuff.

What hassles? Plugging them in and leaving them to do their job??

I got the TP-LINK TL-WR741ND router today and have used gargoyle router firmware on it so it could connect my xbox to the wireless network (wireless bridge mode). - Not bad for <£17.

If anyone is interested in doing the same private message me and I'll let you know how I did it. But don't blame me if you brick your router.

I think £25 for the official adaptor is a good price, but for me I think it would be worth saving and putting towards a new model xbox.
