Showing 1-8 of 8
Does what it is supposed to do, but it is ludicrously overpriced.

Summary: Not much to say here. The USB device does exactly what it is supposed to do: it allows your Xbox 360 to connect wirelessly to Xbox Live. And it does a fine jobe of it; it has sufficient range and all of that. Unfortunately, it costs about 10x as much money as it ought to cost. I think the price is just unnacceptable in 2011.
Summary: This wireless adapter works fine once you get all of your router settings going right. Its definitely not plug and play like I had hoped. I spent about 3 hours researching and resetting my router settings because it didn't recognize it. Turns out that I had to lower my security settings so that my xbox could see it. Good job microsoft, lower security so that it will work with a gaming system.
Great product but why does MS always charge so much?

Summary: I have a wireless network set up at home due to a couple laptops and various gaming systems. This great for those who have a wireless network (or for those who live close to someone dumb enough to have an unsecured wireless network.) It's painfully easy to install. I wouldn't even go so far as to use the word "install", instead let's say it's easy to plug into your Xbox.
Summary: Like many others, I purchased this wireless adapter because there is no hard-wire connection available where my console is located. Physically connecting this device to the XBOX console was fast and easy. Since it is specifcally an XBOX 360 accessory, it simply snaps on to the back of the console and will still allow you to stand the console up vertically if you chose.
Summary: Here's the deal: the xbox wireless adaptor is great performing wireless adaptor that simply works. The only con is the price is incredibly overpriced. The big issue is it is a "necessary" accessory for the 360 as the PS3 and Wii already include wi-fi so I don't see why Microsoft needs to gouge consumers on this item. I would rate this to be a great 5 star product at $65 pricepoint. I would deduct -2 stars simply for being too greedy.
Summary: The wireless adapter works fairly well. I've had a few problems with no longer being detected, for me to have to unplug it and plug it back it for it to work again. Which is tedious. My 360 is brand new, so I don't know if it's the adapter, my console, or what but that's my experience with it so far. I'd say it's worth it if you can't use a wired connection.
Excerpt: Der Microsoft Xbox 360 W-LAN-Adapter ist ein kleiner Sender/Empfänger von Daten mit Antenne, der über einen USB Anschluss an der Rückseite der Konsole angeschlossen wird und es so ermöglicht, kabellos mit der Xbox 360 ins Internet zu gehen. Man braucht dafür natürlich noch einen Internetanschluss und einen dazugehörigen Router, der als Schnittstelle zwischen Konsole und Netz dient.
