Advice needed for Xbox adaptor

Hi all . I'm looking for a bit of advice about what network adaptor to get for my son's Xbox . I've just recently had a wireless router installed after many years of using a normal ethernet connection and as all of the other devices that will be using this connection all have built in wi-fi I am totally at a loss as to what adaptor to get . I'm on a budget as my hubby has been made redundant but one of the things on my son's list was Xbox live . We're pretty clueless when it comes to that sort of thing so any help would be very much appreciated . Specific models would be very helpful or links to offers on here . Search seems to throw up loads of results .

It should be something like this;

Or why not jus get one of those ethernet cables and wire it from the router to the xbox.

Something like this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ethernet-Cable-Router-Enhanced-GFS/dp/B0014BOV5E

That's the newest 1. If your on a budget you should get the old(white G) adapter. If your really skint just connect to the router itself with an rj45 cable.

Link to 1 from CEX. Free delivery but item is second hand.

Where is the Xbox in relation to the router?

/\ What he said /\

If the router is in the room next door you could buy a long ethernet cable.

Thanks all of you for the advice. I bought the white one from Argos . The console is diagonally upstairs from the router so it seemed like a better option than making numerous holes . Needed it cheap but at least that was cheaper than Game were charging . He'll be chuffed to bits being able to get on xbox live as he's been wanting it for a couple of years but I was trying to dissuade him from gaming so long but I've given up on that lol

Just a warning, the White one found it hard to reach diagonally across our house - it required a router move for Xbox live to be lag-free :/

Thanks for that tomwatts , will look out for it , pity I have to wait til I open the package to find out lol

Homeplugs may be a better option if the wireless suffers from lag.

You probably know this but to play games on live - you'll need to purchase gold membership - have you got this? Headset might also be useful especially if your son wnats to play games with his mates (don't want your son to dissapointed on Xmas)

I assume that they haven't had live before, so they'll have a month free.
