You can run most wireless access points in bridge mode/client mode - you'll have to google around to find out what works/ doesn't work. Here's one for the Linksys WRT54G

There was also the Netgear WGE111 that was a cheaper alternative, but I'm not sure they are available any more.

Connect the 360 via the ethernet port to the wireless access point.

I simply go through my laptop to get my 360 online. Connection sharing is all you need, can be set up in no time at all.

I would also add that it supports 802.11a/b/g, meaning if you've got a Wireless router that's got 802.11a you'll get a much better connection than over 802.11g.

It is expensive tho, but as with most console peripherals you have to appreciate there's no driver installtion needed. Most of us 'techies' wouldn't bat an eyelid at installing a PCI / USB wi-fi adaptor, but lesser technical people would struggle :)

are you serious for that as a solution? You may as well just use a Ethernet cable and fore go using a additional wireless device and the extra power plug required and more cables!!!!

best solution ever

He asked for a cheap alternative - you can pick up a wireless router for less than £20,

No one said it was a perfect solution - but cheaper. :-D

additional power usage is not cheaper

i've got powerline adaptors - they are cheaper (a bit) than the wifi option and give a much faster/stable connection, especially in our house since the modem/router is quite far from the telly.
