Do you mean you want a wireless router, or the Xbox wireless Network adapter that plugs into the back of the 360?
#2
yeah my bad sorry the bit that plugs into the back of the 360.!!!
#3
In which case I don't need mine any longer, but they go for £45 on average on fleabay. I'd Be willing to sell it for £40 delivered (1st class recorded)

thats a bargain i would buy it but i got one

1) The cheapest option is to connect the 360 to a wifi laptop if you have one.

2) Second cheapest is to use a wireless network bridge. The cheapest one I have found is linked below. It says that it is only to be used with a voip phone, but you can also use it as an ethernet bridge. All you need is a 5volt ac adapter (I think you can use a psp adapter), as it doesnt come with one.http://www.amazon.co.uk/exec/obidos/ASIN/B000GCFMXW/hotukdeals-21

3)Also, some routers can be configured to act as bridges by flashing them with the DD-WRT firmware (but this is more complicated)

4) Otherwise, (if you feel like spending more) you can use microsofts official wireless adapter.


(PLEASE NOTE: I have typed the above; asuming that you already have a wireless router and just need the adapter for the xbox. If you dont have a wireless router. You can pick them up fairly cheap now.)

MY SUGGESTION:
If you can, use option one. Otherwise option 2. I dont advise the others if you are strapped for cash

I tried the network bridge before on both a laptop and a pc but it either makes the internet run slow as anything or my xbox lag out (2 head shots with a 50 cal on cod 4 n am still alive)

So if any1 has any other offers i would gladly welcome them as i am desperate to get myself on of these....

i would even take the original xbox wireless thing even without the disk cos you dnt need it for the 360!!!

sorry mate i actually havent been looking as i DONT want to spend the money on one i'm just going by what my mum said lol

I grudge paying that much for something when i already have a cable that does the same job lol

Have you thought of using powerline homeplugs? I use them and they work fine with my 360. Then you are not stuck with something that works exclusively with the 360. The wifi adaptor that M$ make is way overpriced

Its Still A Bit Pricey...I dont mind being stuck to ms i just dont wanna spend that much money on it lol
#15
If you can get one of the £5 off £50 maplin vouchers, that brings it down to £54.95. It's a better option than the MS wi-fi adaptor, and you can request some on here cheaper maybe? jmo

No worries. Offer withdrawn though as I'll sell it elsewhere.
