What is the Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adaptor?
The Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter is an accessory for the Xbox 360 video game console. It is used to connect the video game system to your wireless network. It simply plugs into the rear USB port of the console.
Created by Microsoft it is one of the most innovative and well designed accessories for the Xbox 360. It is small but has the range and speed of much bigger wireless bridges.
Why buy the Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adaptor?
The network adaptor is powered by the Xbox 360’s USB port so there is no need for an external power supply. It is a dual band wireless bridge that does not interfere with the console’s wireless controllers. It is 802.11a/b/g compatible so it will work with a wide variety of wireless routers.
This device is designed to be easy to setup. Simply plug it in and configure it from the console’s system blade. Wireless security is also included.
This adaptor is a must for people who want to play on Xbox Live and stream videos or music from a computer without the clutter of network cables.
Some people might be afraid of experiencing lag while using a wireless network adapter but I have yet to experience any delays while playing games on Xbox Live. Videos also seem to stream well, there are no skipped frames that I can notice. Music isn’t choppy or distorted while streaming either.
All in all this adaptor is well worth the purchase.
