    I have the Netgear WGE111 and it shas been very reliable, works well
    with WPA encryption enabled.

    PC World have it for £48.51 if you reserve it online then pick it up
    from the store. It is actually cheaper than a lot of online shops...

    Hi Dave. Thanx for that and to all else who replied. At least I know that
    I'm not getting ripped off or anything.

    For what seems such a basic device, I don't see why it should cost more than

    Just use a USB extension cable. They cost next to nothing.

    Using a USB cable or otherwise would be a waste of money. USB wireless
    adapters all need drivers to work properly, and the 360 has no support
    for anything other than the official USB adapter.

    Any ethernet gaming adapter/ethernet bridge will work, because as far
    as the thing it's plugged into is concerned it looks like a wired
    connection, and needs no drivers installed (you may need to plug it
    into a PC first to set up appropriate IP addresses and such). sell a cheap SMC super-g ethernet bridge for about

    The guy is asking about the xbox - not the 360. The xbox only has an
    RJ45 ethernet plug
    The post suggesting the WGE111 is a good one - it will fit both

    It may seem like it's fulfilling quite a basic task, but its cleverness
    is in that it hides all the complexity away from the user. There's a
    wireless card in there, a little computer, a TCP/IP stack, everything
    needed to do the wireless encryption and usually a web-server, too (so
    you can set the WEP key). A wireless adaptor (PCI, cardbus or USB) has
    no built-in software component - most of the functionality is done in
    the PC, so that has to be recreated in hardware for an adaptor box like

    Although I haven't used this particular model, I like the Netgear stuff.
    I've used other bridges by them & they're dead easy to set up, but
    that's probably the case of the Linksys & of any other model, too.

    Thanx Stroller and to all else who replied. The Netgear one is the one I'm
    going to go for. Glad that I get quite a bit for my money! ;0)

    (including shipping) from Ebuyer today. Still Im looking forward to divx
