Hi there,
This is the older version of the wireless networking adapter for Xbox360. I think it is still amazing deal at half the price of the newer version. I found it accidently at my local currys digital in Stratford London but the price suggests that it may be the nationwide clearance item.


For those of you who are interested the SKU is 0000638379.

The SKU 0000638379.
#5
Damn good price for a great adaptor :thumbsup:
#6
Nice price. Hopefully there widely available.
#7
Bargain!! I just bought one in the Weymouth store.
#8
Can confirm as saw this in Wimbledon branch of Curry's yesterday.
But mind you, still a lot of money for what it is in theory.
(I didn't buy it btw, so it may still be there!)
#9
Excellent price, will have a look myself on Monday in one of the Reading branches.
#10
good ol' currys product ending with 97p
#11
May pop into my local for a laugh next week ha
#12
These will be worth a fiver soon and the "N" adaptors will be going for atleast £15.

If you cant run an ethernet wire from your modem to your xbox then the £30 homeplugs are the next best thing for reducing lag
#13
Super price thy should cost this in the first place but they do the job well and has good connection I can play 2 floors up from my router and get 3 green bars

wait, what?

you tell people not to buy this because it will be cheaper later on, and then you go on to say they should buy something that is £10 more?

Because some people feel the need to create lag and dropouts on LIVE so inevitebly they will go for the cheaper option of the wireless adapters. He was just suggesting that if you actually want a decent online experience that you should opt for the homeplugs instead of the wireless adapters regardless of their price.

I've used the Xbox Wireless Adapter for two years now, and it has great signal strength and reliability. I've never dropped out of LIVE games or had any kind of noticeable lag but I guess YMMV.

What's this?

its about MS allowed 3rd party usb wifi.
#19
Decent price, the new "double signal" adaptors are completely unnecessary to be honest. I've coped perfectly well with this old adaptor for probably 3 and a half years, all with excellent signal.

Because 90% of people are getting the new 360 S which has wireless N built in.

Because of that these adaptors will become cheaper and it is inevitable. But if people do want an adaptor for what ever reason then it is better to get a home plug. The amount of times on the xbox forum people complain about the wireless strength and lag being poor is huge. Everyones house size/ quality (thickness of walls) and router location is different which effects performance.

My ethernet cable runs from my router through a small hole near a cupboard upstairs to my room and then to my Xbox.

Yes it was worth it.

Everyone on LIVE bitches abaout lag, the one's moaning are usually the really bad losers using it as an excuse for getting beaten. Even if you have a poor connection between your xbox and your router, its more than likely still gonna be a better speed than your broadband connection, which unless your using one of these adaptors for streaming stuff (from your pc, or using xbox sky player etc), having homeplug adaptors or N wireless adaptors won't make any difference

Except it's not just about speed - WiFi adds both latency and packetloss.

i would recommend, 2 tenda n150 routers. These go for about £12-13 when on offer on ebuyer. Set as repeaters and then connect to the 360 through cat5s. That way you can use the connections for a whole load of other things aswell for a better connection

...in such tiny amounts that they make no difference whatsoever to online gaming :roll:

...except they dont. Over a short distance it's not an issue, but the further you go the more packetloss creeps in - this IS an issue for Wireless and gaming

True, if you're sniping from 1km+ away (BF:BC2) at a moving target then milliseconds start to become rather important. Even when you are up close (e.g two guys with shotguns running into each other round a corner) then tiny fractions of a second might let you get the first shot off.

Granted the vast majority of lag is caused by the 360 online system of not using servers and using domestic connections to host games but wired is still the best.

Wired>Wireless N>Wireless G
#33
90% of 360 owners will buy the new version will they? Microsoft will be happy with that, but sadly I'd suggest that's pretty wide of the mark..

So the moral is to snipe next to a router. Or am I missing the point ;-)

Can't believe people are complaining about wireless being unreliable. What about wired? OMG the electricity has to go down the ethernet cable which causes lag! Why don't we all go back to using wired controllers then? :-D
#36
So did anyone actually manage to get this or did this thread just get stupidly hot?

Because 90% of people are getting the new 360 S which has wireless N built in. .

So 6,145,290,000 people are going to buy the new xbox :whistling:

I think 5-10% of that is probably a realistic estimate!

thanks guys for the entertainment in reading all these posts! I am going to check my store in the morning, and if they this price I will def buy one.:):thumbsup:

There should be no lag, people are making it all up as an excuse, rather like PC gaming mice.

Your connection is only local between the xbox 360 and the router, then it ends there.

Delay in datacommunications is governed by physics. If a cable is longer you get more delay, however if the clock speed of a device is higher you get less delay. Its a combination of clock speed and physical lengh of cable or distance of receivers and transmitters.

The average home ethernet, people set it to 10mbit or 100mbit, but wireless is in the Ghz range and has a higher clock. So people saying they need to be wired are well, how can I put it, a bit deluded or extreme.

If you get a lot of packet loss and retransmits though it will affect throughput, but that shouldnt really happen.

Without being smug, I used to design networks years ago and I was a CCIE once, but i'm a bit behind now but the principles remain the same here.
