Wow, xbox 360 isn't wireless from the start?!?! GOOD JOB microsoft!

if you have a laptop or desktop with both wireless and wired capabilities, you can use an ethernet cable and just bridge the connection. That is the cheapest way.

@jsoko: yeah they dropped the ball on that one but they finally put it into the new version along with fixing a few other problems that we're caused by using cheap parts

Your best bet, and the cheapest way to go (other than bridging a laptop) is to get something like the Cisco-Linksys WGA54G Wireless-G Gaming Adapter.

I used to use one of these with my old XBOX and it worked great.

You can get one on eBay for around $10 to $20, just search for "WGA54G", WAY cheaper than the official one from MS.

Another possibility would be a router that supports DD-Wrt (or can otherwise be configured for a wireless bridge) and let the router act as an adapter. This would probably be more expensive and would take up more space but you could have several devices wired to the one bridge router.

I am hoping for N as I will stream HD video through my media center.

Deal for one ? Anyone?

You could always try a powerline adapter like the Actiontec Megaplug:

If it were me, I would just buy the Microsoft one.

Looks like you can get them on eBay for about 40 that beats the standard 80 I think I will opt for genuine

You could use this http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7148755&CatId=1594
You get to plug 4 thing in via Ethernet (TV PS3 XBox 360) that will connect you at N speeds.

@jsoko: Original versions were not, but current ones have wireless capabilities.

I'd probably kick in for the adapter myself, but a cheap bridge would be the alternative. I don't think there are any third party dongles that work, or work well, anyway.
