Very good price, hot, but still far too expensive for what it is. Mind you, not as bad as the RRP on the new Xbox branded USB sticks. :roll:
#3
Only order from Zavvi if you're not in a rush to get it.
#4
I might just sell my old one and get this. I get like £35 for it - the old white one. The amount I bought it for, with a loss if you add postage and fees. But if I get this it goes with my elite which is black and I hear these are like many times better than the white one.

Decisions. In few weeks times I am going to create a gaming room (with a pile of stuff I got from HotUKdeals) with all the high tech **** and this would be amazing for streaming - as it most likely quicker.

Atleast you dont have to worry about this stuff with the PS3 lol. But both are amazing in their own ways.
#5
I sold my old one on Fleebay for about £37 and bought the new one from Sainsburys a few weeks ago for approx £35.
#6
This is a deal, never seen the new black wireless N adaptor under £35!

It's £59.99 in GAME instore!
#7
Very tempted ~ currently run my xbox live connection through my laptop which is causing me right grief at the moment.

Still expensive for what it is.. But I am tempted!
#8
Hot - good price. Works like a dream for me.
#9
Does this have improved wireless connectivity for b/g networks, compared to the old one?
#10
ordered will flog the old one
#11
Can anyone get any of the codes listed above working?
#12

I have a question.

I use a Wireless G router and a Wireless G adapter.

If I convert to a Wireless N adapter, will the speed improve, or do I need a Wireless N router to see any improvement?

I could of sworn that you said that you use a standard wireless adapter on your xbox. :?Is that correct? If so I would love to know what brand and model it is that works with the xbox.:thumbsup:
#22
Wicked deal, as other people have said it is expensive for what it is, but much better than full price!

I edited my post because I didn't write it clear enough. By standard, I meant regular Xbox 360 Wirless G Router.

Just a word of warning for those wanting a wireless adapter for media streaming...

I'm not saying that this is everyone's experience, just mine, so please don't flame...

I CANNOT get a consistently reliable wifi connection for media streaming on either the Xbox, a laptop, or the PS3, even with the wireless access point in the same room. I have certain times during the day when it works fine, but come evening time it stutters and buffers and so on, and we're talking about 'G' and 'N' networks.

As I've been investigating this (I work in domestic and SOHO IT support, so I'm messing with networks all the time) I've been drawn to looking into the local contention for wifi channel broadcast bandwidth, and even though I live in a quiet rural area I'm finding that there is massive contention for the very limited number of wifi broadcast channels, and different ISP's are issuing pre-configured routers which tend to dominate the three main clear blocks of wifi channel, at the beginning of the range, the middle, and the end, because of course convention says that you should ideally have a clear three channels on either side of the channel your network is running on in order to reduce interference.

I've spent three days with a wifi sniffer running next to my workstation at my home office, so I'm able, literally, to see all day comings and goings with regard the local 'wifi' community, and of course every man and his dog now has a wireless DSL router in my area, mostly from BT, SKY, Plus and O2 and you can watch on the display as everyone comes home from work and turns on, and all I can say is that at those times of day the interference is incredible.

It might be barely noticeable for web surfing and email because those functions are based on shuttling packets of information backwards and forwards, but the interference for media streaming is just untrue because of the consistency of the bitrate required and the bandwidth overhead. In my experience wireless is unusable for the media streaming these days, and it will get worse the more people are on wireless broadband with the limited broadcast frequency range that we have. In the forseeable future I can see wireless becoming unusable for such purposes until such a time as either the frequency range is opened up, or the ISP's turn to wifi broadband with ultra high gain wireless hotspots in every street (hopefully never). I'm noticing the broadcast power of routers increasing also, and of late the bar stewards at BT have been supplying the routers set up for the FON roaming system which seems to broadcast with a stronger signal than their other routers (and is a real pi**er for roaming with an iPhone) as well as their FON-type commercial wifi routers being installed in all these houses that keep being converted to flats. I've got at least three FON type systems broadcasting 24-7 within spitting distance of my house, it seems.

Total pain in the ass, to the point that for streaming and connection consistency, I've actually extended my cabled network throughout the whole house, which has solved my problems.

Like I said, it may not happen to everyone, but it happened to me, so I'd just issue that as a warning to those who think 'mmmmmmm..... wifi media streaming!!!!'

Good price regardless, and heat applied accordingly.

I've been advised that because I only have a 20 meg broadband connection, it's not worth getting Wireless N because my broadband can't handle any faster than Wireless G.

Is this true? Is this not worth buying?

You'd need an N-enabled router for any realy improvement, otherwise it'll continue to just use G.

That said, the N adapter does have two antennas, so you may find reception is improved regardless.
#28
Hmm. So, to sum up, maximum speed wouldn't improve, but it may be a little more reliable.

Normally I'd shoot this down without thinking about it, but I can still fetch a decent amount for my old adapter... I'd effectively be paying about a tenner for this.

I was in Game today, and the guy in front of me bought one of these for £59.99!

IMO, the only reasons to buy this if you have the older adapter already are for the increased range and/or the increased bandwidth for streaming HD video.

Does anyone know what speed the O2 Wireless Box runs at? In terms of whether I would be better off sticking with original xbox wireless adaptor

Depends which one; the standard wireless box with one antenna is 802.11g, if it has two it's 802.11n.

So, I've caved in and bought this.. Having looked at their reduced games I was going to buy NHL 10, but landed 10p short of the £50 mark, so instead, I've opted to grab 2100 points instead as I'm soon to buy some DLC for Borderlands. According to Zavvi, Wireless Adaptor has cost me £31.52, with the points costing me £14.38. Less whatever Quidco get from Zavvi (if anything, having used the £5 off!).

When I was browsing through their games I noticed Red Dead Redemption seems cheaper on Zavvi (£36.95) than the other usual places I checked (Play, Amazon, Shopto..), however, as I've mentioned in a post previously, I refuse to pay over £30 for any game!

I do the same.

On my laptop the wireless connection has become extremely intermittent when the xbox isn't locally connected, plus, I've really only been playing Fifa 10 and Borderlands online, but I keep getting disconnected from the EA Servers (not necessarily always Xbox Live) constantly during matches lately and losing connection to a mate who's Borderlands game I've been joining.. So fingers crossed the adaptor will do the trick, though I have caved to paying a fortune for something from Microsoft which should theoretically cost peanuts!
#34
Nice, ordered

Houtukdeals is costing me money again.....
#35
This is a good deal, but beware - prices change when going from page to basket!

check PS3 H.A.W.X & Fallout 3 - both listed @ £9.95, but changes to £12:95 if placed in the basket at the same time.

I found out though that if you order separately they stay @ £9.95 :whistling::-D

I bought one of these pieces of sh*t. Will not work on WPA-2 security and can't even see my network if its not broadcasting SSID. Absolute rubbish, my PS3 WiFi works perfect.

Doh! Also just bought one from Amazon for £40. Great price

Depends on the context and purpose.

The rate at which your wireless network can guzzle internet traffic won't change because your 20 meg connection (which you'll actually be getting probably between 10 and 14 meg out of due to distance to exchange) is still less than the speed of your 'Wireless G' network. The only place you'll notice the speed differential between 54mbps and 108mbps and so on, until the time that broadband is 100mbps is on the shuttling of traffic internally between devices on your network, say for example your network attached storage, a file server, or your PC, so file or media streaming.

Buying wireless N adapters simply to keep a device connected to standard internet traffic down a broadband connection would be like buying a Dodge Viper that you never plan on taking out of the town centre.

I suspect that the issue you're encountering is related to the contention locally for wireless channels on which your neighbours wireless routers can broadcast. Wifi only has a narrow spectrum on which to function and it is already over-subscribed. Metaphorically, while your wireless device CAN know, and CAN maintain a continuous connection to your wireless router (by SSID, secure key and so on) the effect that excessive channel contention has is like drowning out a conversation between two people that know each other, and can see each other, but keep having to shout to be heard over the sound of everyone else having loud conversation in the vicinity.

If you ever wondered (philosophically speaking) if you could hear everything going on in your street simultaneously without any sound loss over distance, and considered what hearing every TV, every conversation, every door banging, every doorbell and every microwave pinging with equal volume, constantly, would be like, then that's what your wireless network equipment is experiencing every day.

You'll find, interestingly enough, that there are wireless networks broadcasting in your area, on the same channel as your wifi gear, which is tens of meters away, maybe more, and yet broadcasts a higher gain (louder) wifi signal than the router that's in the same room as you.

Buying your way through wireless devices might fix the problem, but if I'm right about the nature of the problem, and I'm increasingly finding that I am, 'wireless' isn't actually the answer we all seek at all. It's convenient. We prefer it. But for continual connection and reliable data streaming, cabled networks are the only way to go.

Wifi, in my view, should have always been a convenience for web surfage and emailage, but roaming and mobility should have been emphasised as the principal function. For a device that stays in the same place all the time, use a network that also stays in the same place all the time as a rule of thumb. Wifi is a bit like the camera in your iphone. Its great for a bit of momentary convenience that isn't mission critical. But if you want to take the next cover of Men's Health, use a decent camera designed to deliver the quality and consistency.

IMHO.

Cheers for that SampleX, because my xbox is upstairs, with the router downstairs next to the phoneline, the only time it can be connected directly (without taking a load of carpet up to run it underneath) is when no one else is in - which isn't very often!
