    XBOX Wireless adapter deals from MS? (free?)

    Probably a load of old codgers donkey nuts but i recall a work m8 mentioning that MS were giving away the wireless adapter for, wait for it....FREE!? makes me chuckle to even suggest MS giving summit away for zilch but hey no harm in asking on here

    So is it true or a load of old frog poop?

    cheers!

    Cannot see it myself. I may be wrong though.

    What they should do is to update the dev instance and hardware id's and allow all the cheap usb wireless to now work instead of blocking them

    load of frog spawn me old china whacker

    Let you off then ;-) If you got to Northumberland Street tomorrow and pretend to throw a Gregs corned beef pasty in anger whilst singing never gonna give you up at anyone that looks like Astley.

    phone them up, say your existing one isnt working, they send you a new one.

    Do you not need proof of purchase ? or have to send the one you don't really own to them ? or give them a serial number/part code ? What if they ask for Mac address ?

    Hey i might try that as i phoned them a while ago when my wireless controller went on the blink and they sent a new one out. Thye didn't want the old one back which is good cos i had forgot to sync it up on the 360 hehe ;/

    I heard this was true as well.

    Went on youtube and was gonna check out stuff on it before i phoned them and noticed that there are alot of people with guides on how to connect the 360 up to a wireless router from your pc (meaning you don't need the MS adapter!).

    Anyone tried this? vids were a bit messy.

    thought this was common knowledge now. Its been around for a long time.
    Internet connection sharing is what its called, and it works.

    Haha thx for putting me right, god i love the net! trouble is i only got the 360 at xmas for the bairn and haven't even looked into this. Common knowledge for Desktop/laptop's but for the 360 i didn't know it could be done with out the adapter.

    Yeh it's called bridging connections or something
