not when its been £50 since the release of the 360. you just cant get these things cheap
#4
Good price, but it should be free the dirty microsoft *******s!
#5
Should be built in by now, I'm not buying one in protest. Not voting either way as that would be unfair.

yeah thats why i did not vote cold but i just mean for what it is, the price is crazy.

i just bought a ps3 dualshock for £35 and i thought that was high but in comparison it seems a good deal.
#7
Was going to say the same thing as everybody else; relatively cheap for the product, but still damn expensive for a wireless adapter!

Microscrote should give these away free (or discounted) with a Live! Gold subscription or something, not charge £40 odd (the price or 1 or 2 very good games) for something every bit of hardware this side of 2006 has built-in already.

Much easier to share your connection with a laptop, for the small price of a cable...

Just means you can't be downloading on your laptop at the same time as playing online, which is better than shelling out £40...:idea:

I got mine yesterday - under 35 quid from additions using the 30 pounds off 60 pounds spend for new customers. Finally can stop having to get my laptop out and create the bridge everytime i want to go online!! (I bought the network down at work when I left the bridge in place :oops:)
#10
personally I would just buy something like this

http://www.shop.bt.com/products/belkin-wireless-g-universal-range-extender-access-point-4287.html

That way at least you can connect other wired devices into it too, it's cheaper and extends the range of your wireless network.

Granted this is one of the cheapest prices I have seen for the 360 wireless adaptor but it is still massively overpriced.

stick the ethernet cable that comes with your xbox into your xbox and laptop, and bridge the LAN & Wireless network connections. To create the bridge you need to disable both connections, go into Wireless connection, enable sharing, by checking the top sharing box and leaving the bottom one unchecked. then enable the wireless connectionand highlight both connections right click and bridge, now even though ive done it before i did it last night with my new laptop and took me about 20mins as you need to play about with it as sometimes the Wireless connection wont show the sharing tab and the LAN will, its coz they both need to be disabled or the Wireless one needs ot be disabled ande the LAN enabled then the sharing tab comes up in the Wireless connection. I know its all very confusing but depending on what OS you have its slightly different but thats the way it goes.

Xbox 360 will be replaced soon... with a machine with in-built wireless, obviously.

This is not correct, you cannot bridge a connection that has ICS enabled.

whats ICS enabled? well I bridged both my wireless and LAN and they work, infact if you google it its all overthe internet, but ive not found a straightforward method that workds first time, if you want me to help you with yours, im happy to talk you through it:thumbsup: This is why you have to disable the connections before you can bridge them, go ahead try it!

I have set this up several times and agree it can be tricky and if disabling connections first can help I would be willing to give this a try. However the problem I had with your instructions was this.

"go into Wireless connection, enable sharing, by checking the top sharing box and leaving the bottom one unchecked"

Windows does not allow you to bridge a connection that is also shared so I cannot see how this can be correct.

sorry for the confusion, my IT talk isnt very clear, what i meant at somepoint you have to check the top box in the sharing tab and uncheck the bottom one, i thinkits before you bridge the two connections, heres a guidefrom You Tube but agreed doesnt work first time always

also from what i remember after, sharing it, i disabled the wireless connection, then enables the LAn and the the bridge worked. and then i enabled the wireless connection and it all worked. im at office now but will definitely check 4 u when im home again

Soon as in 2 -3 years? :whistling:
#19
TBH i would have thought by now M$ would have bundles with an adapter included
so add say £10-£15 to the elite to give it wifi 'out the box'
#20
damn money grabbing microsoft.... i w8ing for them to start charging more gold membership cus i think they are going to. so buy years now lol
#21
Why is it that so many people (who have no interest whatsoever in buying the Xbox) get on their high-horse about the on-line stuff?

You don't need to buy the official Microsoft wireless adapter.

You can use a cable which costs next to nothing.

You can use a spare wireless router if wi-fi really is so vital to you.

Nobody is being 'forced' to do anything or pay Microsoft a penny.

(and Xbox Live is pennies a day, nothing I could care less about)

No mate, you just had the ground cut from under you by someone with a different POV.

Aside from a bunch of PS3 owners
(who seem to be continually acting out of a sense of exaggerated outrage on the Xbox owners behalf for some weird reason only best known to themselves)
nobody I know, with an Xbox, gives a flying monkeys' one about the few pennies a day XBL costs - and in fact having seen the PS3 'free' service I'd rather pay a few pennies a day for the better service.
Besides, the 'Silver' XBL membership is free.

Nobody (I know) with an Xbox cares that the official adapter costs more than it should because it's so easily avoided if the cost is such a big deal to you.

We all know the official 360 wi-fi adapter is pricey (although with deals like this it seems much less so) so thanks but none of us need statements of the ble*ding obvious, thank you very much.
Far more useful are comments which point out a cable can be used (with not a hint of lag whatsoever) or people can use an old router (which more and more of us have lying about the place these days).
The usual pretend outrage that would have people believe Xbox owners are all forced into going for one product with no possible acceptable alternative are just the preserve of the silly fanboy trying to score an (as usual) laughably ill-informed 'point'.
#24
I'll get my coat........point well made

....however, some of us (me) aren't that hot on hacking in an old wireless router and bridging laptops etc - just trying to get the kids on Live easy and with minimum cables and stuff lying around the bedroom. I am a PC user / gamer and find it nuts that subsrcibtion fees are charged and so much downloadable content is chargable.....800MP for a few maps on an FPS or a few cars.....come on. Burnout Paradise was a good example of free good downloadable content until they blew it charging for unlocakable cars etc.

cheers dude
#25
I don't mean or want to come over as snippy about this, I agree that some XBL prices are silly (but if you wait some of them will come down from 800 to 400......sadly that's just the way things are and how they are going to be from now on, there's far too much money being made at it - and that applies to PS3 and the rest as much as Xbox) but I genuinely think that the XBL gold service is worth it.

You shouldn't have to go to the trouble of actually hacking a wireless router, just plug in the ethernet cable and with luck your main wireless router or modem router should spot it without any big difficulties.
(that's the theory, I don't know why but wireless can be tricky so don't blame me if it isn't quite as straight-forward ;) )

Good luck.

Shame m$ don't drop price on this to £10 and for your 800 ms points for content chuck in the gamer pictures and all themes for that particular content.


Criterion knew what they were doing giving away free stuff. Knowing they could then justify the rest.

And the rest seem to leave out content from the game you paid for and then magically it appears much quicker than it should but at a further cost.

That hasbro family night thing will end up costing you nearly £40 in M$ points when on wii it's £9.99 -£12.99 for the lot.

M$ will not be adding built in wireless on this console well IMO I don't think they will . It will have to be on their next machine may even be a/b/g/n they should also stick on gigalan on wired side next gen.

I don't mind wires but many prefer wireless so good price for it if you can get past the needless expense
#27
i must admit if found it quite cool to get a ps3 and get the wifi up and running out of the box
having the ps3/360/xbox 1 under the telly means having more on wifi cuts down cables
this is one 360 owner who would like wifi for their 360 ;)
