Pros Conveniently attaches directly to the back of the 360. Supports WPA, WPA2, PSK-TKIP and AES. Strong, stable signal. Very easy setup. Supports B, G and A!
Cons $99 is a little steep (but FAR better than no WPA at $50).
Summary Finally, a gaming networking solution that doesn't require me to compromise the security of my home wireless network. Bravo Microsoft! Hopefully, this will be a new trend (but I doubt it for some reason--I expect Nintendo and Sony's solutions to support only WEP...) Setup took all of 3 minutes, connection was rock solid. This is by far the easiest wireless config I've had yet.
Pros Small. 1-5 minute installation, depending on how smart or dumb you are. Always On. It completes your LIVE experience. You can take your 360 anywhere where there is a TV & a wireless nonsecured signal.
Cons Microsoft likes to give us choices....... how sweet.. It would have been better if they had just included the damn thing inside the 360. PS3 and Wii did good. (One clap for them both).
Summary I bought this piece of white and gray beauty two weeks ago. I love it. It took me like a minute to set up. It actually took me longer to find some scissors and cut my way throught the damn packaging. Then there was the traditional one minute stare at your new product in your hands, in amazement that you have the damn thing. Then the installation process which should not exceed 5 minutes, unless your home network sucks or you're just plain stupid. Well, I have nothing more to say, except that I wish it had been intergrated into the system like the other two competitors did into theirs. Oh, and that I STRONGLY RECOMMEND The Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter to anyone who has a 360 or is planning to purchase one in the near future.
PS. Microsoft,you bastards. I could have spent the money I used to buy this sexy beast to buy two of your 360 games. That's all I have to say. I Love you MS.
Pros allows you to play wirelessly, and allows you to play wireless system link with a neighbor
Cons Signal strength is good, but not near perfect, which is required for lag free fps games
Summary Everyone keeps talking about how they still have good signal strength or a good ping time while playing on it.
and they will say they still had 3 out of 4 bars online or something. but when playing games that actually give a real ping time, you will see that your ping will be 20-30 ms higher than if you used a ethernet cable.
Do you remember when wireless controllers first came out and there would be an annoying split second between the time you shoot, till the time the gun actually shoots, well its the same thing here.
To conclude, if you are a serious online gammer, you know that a split second is the difference between life and death, and the added lag of this wireless adapter will help you lose that fight day in and day out.
my ping went from being the lowest out of everyone playing with me, except the host, to being average, so if your someone that already has an average ping, you will have a high ping.
if you have a choice, just buy a long ethernet cable, you can order a 100ft cable for under 30$ online.
but if you are not into games where split second trigger pulls matter, and you only need it for streaming media from you pc this is just fine.
Pros It supports several types of security formats like: WPA, WPA2, PSK-TKIP and AES. Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter seamlessly synchronizes with the Xbox 360 system.
Cons The price needs to come down and the lag time seems to be the #1 complaint. The lag time really appears to be based on the individauls network. Fix your network by following these directions http://www.microsoft.com/athome/setup/wirelesstips.aspx
Summary This is a great wireless adapter! It's lightning fast, trouble free, easy to hook up and supports many security features. With the right network you will be very satisfied with this wireless adapter. http://www.usedxbox.net

Pros Supplies wireless to the 360
Cons Seems 50/50 BUT my fix is to cut it on by the box not the remote.
Summary This is a smokin adapter when it is working properly. Mine appears to work at peak when cut on by the 360 box and not the wireless remote. At times the adapter appears to not be activated which was fixed occasionally by unplugging/replugging the adapter.
