Excerpt: I recently bought my partner a new Xbox 360 slimline (MW3 Edition) and as the biggest TV in our house is in the front room, he decided that this new console was to go in the front room in place of the old Xbox 360 we already owned. I decided to put the older console in the bedroom, so that I could play it whilst my partner was on his console in the front room, but to be able to play online I would need to get a wireless adapter as the older consoles do not have a built...
Pros: easy to install, simple to use, nice and tidy
X Box 360 Wireless Adapter - Quick, Easy and Reliable
25 May 2011
Excerpt: This is an official Microsoft Wireless adapter product for your X Box 360. It plugs into one of the USB sockets and allows you to connect to your home wireless network without a wired connection. If you use the USB sockets on the back of your X Box it can securely clip onto the back. When I had to relocate for my job I ended up lodging at someones house. They had a wireless setup and all their equipment was situated downstairs.
Pros: Great device, easy to use and solves a common problem !
Excerpt: For a while I used my trusty xbox 360 with an Ethernet cable plugged in so I could go online and make use of the wonderful Xbox Live. In my humble opinion modern day gamers are missing out on a considerable lot if they ignore online gaming and thus I wanted to be in on the action. However, it soon became apparent that by having to stretch cables to the computer downstairs, cut offs and the wire being a tripping hazrd in a busy house I needed something to take them away...
Excerpt: The xbox 360 wirless networking adapter is somewhat of a necessary evil, in that it is needed for wireless online play and yet is still priced quite highly and you are forced to pay it. When I purchased mine it was quite near the start and that time it was even pricier at around £70. The simple fact was though that I wanted to play xbox live, and didn't want wires trawled through the house so I had to buy it.
XBOX 360 Wireless Adaptor - a must for serious gamers!
12 October 2009
Excerpt: If, like me, you have an Xbox 360, you will no doubt be aware of the dynamic and enjoyable facility available to you online, namely Xbox live. Xbox live is a place where you can download demos and game add-ons, chat to your friends, and stream movies and videos direct to your Xbox 360 in glorious high definition.
Pros: Online gaming anywhere in the house
Cons: Can lose connectivity without warning and expensive
Excerpt: At first I felt put off by the price, but if you have your wireless router and Xbox at opposite ends of the house, you could have an ethernet cable (a wonderful trip hazard and possible damage to the router/Xbox if someone were to trip). The only pain (physical) is trying to get it out of the package without being scrached by the plastic casing. Once pluged into the back, very little had to be done except for setting up the password for the secure network.
Excerpt: I, like nearly everyone with an Xbox 360 wanting Xbox Live, spent a fairly long time looking for a cheaper option the, lets admit it, very expensive Wireless Networking Adapter. With prices in England ranging from £40-£60 and from what I've heard it's $100 in USA it's a hefty price for something so small and seemingly simple, and it is. It's as simple as that.
Pros: Great Value, Small Practical Size, Portable, Large Connection Range
Cons: Loses connection sometimes, Fairly expensive, which isn't contradicting the Great Value advantage
Excerpt: i bought this for £50 second hand, and i found it very easy to use and it connected to my modem in minutes, but i know not everyone connects it as easy as i did, infact i couldnt connect it to my old router when i first got an xbox 360, so then i went for the ethernet cable method which is ideal if the router is in the same room as the xbox 360 because its much cheaper, gauranteed to work and normally makes connection better, but in my case i had a 30m ethernet cable...
