Xbox 360 wireless network adaptor, allow your xbox 360 to connect wirelessly to your router for wireless gaming! No need for long network cables, or location restriction!

Found in store at tesco for £39. Also available online at this price, however is currently out of stock.

I managed to get mine today for £35.10 from PCWorld by price match and then an extra 10% off! So really, as long as you live within 30miles of a tesco from your closest pcworld or currys, you're laughing!

And to all the people who are going to say "oh there is a new adapter coming out" yes, there is, but its an N type adapter, so unless you have 802.11N enabled routers, then it is a pointlessly more expensive option for no gain in performance if you have only 802.11g equipment! (Which is more than enough for Xbox 360 for online and network streaming and online play anyway!)

Enjoy people :)

Hot deal! if you need the item now.

If there is a new adapter coming out, sould we expect a lot more reductions? Might wait and see.

Been looking to buy one of these for a while as I don't want to have to load my laptop up everytime I want to play online and I would rather not have the extra clutter of another wireless point.

However I have heard lots of bad stories about the signal being very weak and dropping out (even more so than normal wirless adapters that is) so unless the price drops much lower once the new wireless N adapters come out on 20th Nov I think a 2nd wireless point is the way forward.

I have one and its a neat wireless connection with little faffing around. Its £39 at coolshop........

I have been using the wireless adapter for over a year and a half.
No complaints.
No lag with online gaming using a Netgear WGR614 V9.
The only problem is I cannot stream 1080p movies from my pc.
720p streaming works fine.
I now have a D-Link N Router so will be upgrading to the new adapter as soon as it is released.
If you can get PcWorld to pricematch Tesco then this is a great deal for now.
Might be worth keeping an eye on Gamestation or CEX for 2nd Hand versions though after this weekend when the N adapter is released as I will be passing my hand me downs off there.

Hot for now.

How would the network adapters that use the wiring in your house and you plug into an electrical socket compare to this? They seem to be around the same price.

I've not used them personally, but a friend of mine uses them for his computer and says they are well good. But if like me you go to a friend house with your xbox a lot, the wireless is a better option as it means you dont have to mess around with more cables and that kinda stuff!

awesome price! i've just picked one up myself!

I can also confirm that I've had one for a while now and its been faultless, no probs WHATSOEVER. BUT I also saw the twin antenna version today so I guess these will start to drop pretty soon :thumbsup:

I have only ever heard good things about these

I have had these twice now and always worked perfectly.

I use the wireless adapter and connect to the router which is in another room through an an old stone wall. The connection is great and hasn't dropped out once in 6 months. However the adapter itself is overpriced for what it is. I got mine 2nd hand.

Admittedly, it should be built into the console really.

the new one has been out for about a month or so for £59, this is the reduced price
#14
Sounds hot to me, after one, cheers for the heads up.
#15
Me too. Never had any problems with my wireless adapter. Been running it with my Netgear router for quite sometime. My router is in my living room while my Xbox has been down in the basement.
#16
If you have a wireless N router, you really would be better off just paying the extra £10 for the Wireless N adapter. Even if you don't have the router yet, you're future proofing for just a little bit more. This price is okay, but to be honest this adapter has been available around this pricepoint for a long time now in various places.
#17
with pcworld price match this is a great deal, probably cheapest ive seen this

I have this adapter and powerline - powerline is a great alternative if you live in an area with high wireless density as this can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the signal you get.

I'm an advocate of both types of connection - the wireless adapter is great. Have used it from 2 floors away and worked flawlessly. As another poster said though, streaming over wireless starts to experience drops the higher quality of video you stream but if you're just interested in gaming, you can't go wrong really.
#19
Looks like a really good deal, I have looked at buying one on and off for ages, but price has always put me off.

Have to agree now that the N version has more appeal so much so that I have just bought one from ShopTo for £52.99 delivered. ( http://www.shopto.net/XBOX%20360/VIDEO%20GAMES/XB2WI12-XBOX%20360%20Wireless%20Adaptor%20New.html )

Cheers just ordered for a Xmas pressie. I've had 360 for over 3 years and use one of these - NEVER had lag or a drop out.
#21
Never had a problem with mine but traded it in last month and hard wired it instead. Windows Media Centre on W7 is almost unusable over wireless, and you can forget playing BBC HD over it. Used to be fine with MCE 2005 though, the extra bandwidth must just be taking it over the edge.
#22
I've had one of these, with no problems whatsoever.

I'm not sure wether to buy this adapter (I sold my last one, now I'm moving house I need another) for the £35 or future proof myself and get the N.

Ah, decisions.
#23
Thanks for this,my Tesco takes the Lidl £5 off £30 spend vouchers in the Daily Express all week,plus my staff discount...makes this £30.10 just what I was looking for...hot for me.:thumbsup:

The homeplug (ethernet over mains) adaptors can be very effective

Bear in mind however that if your upstairs and downstairs are on a seperate ring - they wont actually work (if router is on lower and xbox is on upper) They do offer some very good speeds - and from what I remember from friends, mine certainly does.

I'm torn wether it offers any evidence, but I noticed that it offers a destinct drop in ping after we had the house rewired.

Guys,

Can anyone recommend a cheap quality 802.11N enabled router? I'm moving to my girlfriends house and we have Virgin Broadband. It's only 2meg (I may try to convince her to upgrade) and the router looks utter rubbish.

I'll be using my Xbox in the spare room which is directly above the living room where the router and modem is, however I'm a newbie when it comes to broadband hardware.

Can I just buy a 802.11N enabled router to replace what Virgin provided years ago, and buy the Microsoft Wireless N adapter to get the best possible connection? I'd use a cable, but that's out of the question (gf).

Thanks for your advice!

Cheers

I'm not sure if there are any Game Stop stores in England/Scotland/Wales, but I just popped into a store in Belfast and picked up a new adapter for £32.99.

Hope this helps
#27
I'd recommend getting a powerline network adapter set instead, because whilst this wireless is better than nothing, the powerline network is like a wired network (with no wires). I've had disconnections from games with the wireless, but not since I got my powerline network.

Best of all, powerline adapters cost about the same as this wifi adapter, so you won't be spending much more.
#28
nah...im using my laptop through the shared connection as a wifi card for xbox :D
#29
Yes, this is a good deal, but I have feeling that they will become a lot cheaper in January. Last year prices dropped in the sales, and I can see this happening again, in addition, with the new N adapter coming out, it will also bump down the prices for this one (im not recommending buying the n, just saying wait for it to come out so it knocks the price for this one)
#30
£49.99 in my store today , also now showing at £49.97 online , price must have gone back up :-(
#31
Might just buy from coolshop
#32
Amazon are selling the new xbox adapter now £59.00 - has twice the range & 7x the speed - good if your xbox is upstairs & wireless modem is downstairs

Im downstairs and my router is upstairs but havent got a N router just a G one. So would the N adapter still make a difference?

No. Makes no difference.

I on the other hand do have an N-band router. But it won't any difference for me either. Why? Because I'm not paying for the adapter and then again to play online. Pah!

Have wireless G router myself - it should still make a difference as will pick up the signal more clearly as has longer range - still waiting to receive mine from Amazon

Cheapest way Ive found is to open an account with very, use the code ZG003 which gives £30 off £60 spend, the adaptor is £55, make the order up to £60 with a £5 buy and go through cashback site for a further 9%, works out under £30.
