    Does anyone have any recommendations for a USB Wireless adapter that can be used with a 360?

    The Official one is the only one that will work as a wireless adapter I think, unless some new ones have come out specifically for the 360.

    You can use wireless bridges that'll plug into the ethernet port, but not sure on cheapness/effectiveness on those.

    I'm sure some folks got 3rd party (PC) USB wireless dongles to work, but it seemed very hit and miss as obviously you cant load any drivers onto the 360.

    not heard of anyone getting 3rd party ones to work i would recommend a wireless bridge as it can then be used on other devices in the future

    Something like a Netgear WGE111 (wireless ethernet bridge) would set you back about £45 so is a slightly cheaper alternative to the MS Wireless adapter. Not as tidy though and you aren't saving much.
