Any one got a 360 to VGA adapter they don't need, or know a cheap online retailer?

Also after a 360 wireless adapter, MS ones are pricey, does anyone know how to make a cheaper one out of a WiFi USB adapter, or again know any cheap Third Party sellers?

I would suggest deal extreme for the cable (http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.3666), but they're not as cheap any more due to the low £.
As for the wireless, if you can get your hands on a FON wireless router you can put dd-wrt on it and use it as a cheap as chips bridge. Or if you mean via a computer, thats pretty easily done, connect the usb adapter and the xbox to the pc and share the connection in windows.

Thanks for that, works out about £6.00 from DX which is fine.

I have just got a router from Virgin which I am now using, so replacing the router isn't a preferred option at the moment, (took me ages to set up a dynamic IP and forward ports on it for Bittorrent).

The PC is connected to wireless network via WiFi USB adapter, would I be able to share the connection of the PC with the 360 with it being set up in this way?

Cheers again, repped you!

Yeah you can connect it like that, would be the cheapest way, you have to leave your computer on though.
It took me a while to do it on my laptop, you basically just have to fiddle around with all the windows networking stuff, there are guides on the internet but none of them entirely worked for me, i just picked bits out of each of them and eventually it worked.
If i remember, the basic steps are to go into the properties of the wireless connection and click share it, then right click the wired, xbox connection and click bridge this connection.

Hia mate, I have pretty much the same setup... (But I have the problems you have solved)

I use the VGA cable 360 going to my monitor
And I use a crossover ethernet cable coming from my pc which goes into my 360. A crossover ethernet cable should be pretty cheap, may just be worth getting a crossover adapter if you already have a long enough crossover lead...
