An inexpensive bridge will work fine. The MS adapter is also great, but very expensive at $100.

Are there other inexpensive bridges that work good less than $50?

I got the Linksys WGA54AG a+g adapter for 45 clams on sale at Best Buy. It seems to work OK. It connects to the ethernet port. It can be used with any other ethernet-equipped device if you configure it with their software, so I figured it'd be handy to have around.

I might get the MS one someday because it's so much neater - no wall wart, short usb cable, clips onto either the Xox or the HD-DVD drive.

I use the linksys WET11 on my 360. I've used it on pcs, original xbox, and now on the 360....it's great.

search for linksys wet11 on ebay... usually well under $50.

I cannot get my old Microsoft MN-740 to work with my XBOX 360. For some reason I cannot get it to be recognized. It workled with my old XBOX. It fails on the second sheck in the XBOX live check. It would be nice to get iot to work so that I can return the overpriced Microsoft USB dongle.

thats a steal on that adapter. Its better than the MN740 because it has more security options (wpa) and wireless A access. The MN740 was also made by dlink and thats why they look alike...but the dlink branded one is better just b/c of those features i meantioned.

I've even flashed my MN740 with that dlinks bios in order to get the wpa security...didnt work unfortunately so I just might pic one of these up as well. at least i didnt brick the mn740..still works fine but now my system thinks it the dlink adapter.

Anyone still usuing this bridge? I just picked one up new for $25. I get a notice that I am getting interference and should switch to 802.11a to rectify

Suggestions? Seems that switiching to a would be a step back from b/g? Then again I'm not a network expert

802.11a is a lot like 802.11g, but it runs at 5GHz instead of 2.4GHz, like everything else. It has slightly higher typical throughput than g does.

But you would need a router that supports a.

Wireless n also supports 5GHz, but not all devices actually use it. A lot of them use 2.4GHz.

Thanks. How would I check my router for this/change it? I have Verizon DSL with the wireless router they supplied made by Westell
