If you mean a wireless network adapter then there is only one that you can buy, as far as i am aware which is the the official microsoft one.

It will work with any wirless router. All you have to do is plug it into the usb into the back of your 360 and go onto your console settings, onto network settings and go on connect. It will search for wireless networks in range. When yours comes on the screen click on it and it will ask you for a wep key. The wep key is on your router, it consists of numbers and letters. Type that into your xbox and it will connect up.

you wont have to keep typing the wep key in, it will only ask you for it the first time you connect up

If you do not have a router that you can plug directly into the back of the Xbox 360 then yes you will need to purchase a wireless router to sync up with your wireless router that you already have downstairs. You didn't specify if your broadband router had wireless capabilities? Does it? If not then you will need to buy a wireless router to be able to hook up your Xbox 360.

Microsoft has their own personal wireless router that fits on the back of the Xbox 360 nicely. I would recommend you purchase it due to ease of installation and compatability.

Here is a link to an example of what it looks like: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-n-networking-adapter/76045?ref=recpdp&cross=802124

And a cheaper older model: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/accessories/xbox-360-wireless-network-adapter/40678

And here is a link to Xbox step by step wirless hookup: http://support.xbox.com/en-us/pages/xbox-live/get-started/connecting/wireless.aspx

If you are having specific issues then ask away and I can see what I can do to help you out. Try to be specific on what your current setup is and what problems you are having. thanks.

Do u need a wireless adaptor to set up xbox live??


No, a Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter is not required to access, and set up Xbox Live, but you will need an internet connection. If you are close enough to a modem or router, you can buy an Ethernet cord, and plug it in to both the modem/router, and firmly into your Xbox 360 console. You will either need the Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter, or the Ethernet cord. Ethernet cords are very cheaper, much cheaper than a Wireless Adapter, but the Wireless Adapters are much or easier to reason with. So choose wisely with money.

Is this adapter compatible with xbox 360? when i insert the adapter into the usb port it does not even light up. do i need to buy one specifically for xbox 360?


Microsoft only supports their own wireless adapter in either G or N format at this point. You can get a one at your local big box retail store or get a used one on eBay or Amazon for a decent price.
Sorry.

I have an xbox with xbox live subscribtion and i have sattelite internet. I was told if i got a netgear router i might be able to play xbox live? Is this true?


Actually, just about any newer router will do the job. You can either connect the Xbox console via the Ethernet port on the back or through the Xbox Wireless Network Adapter which you can find at any video game store.
The ethenet cable is the cheaper option as it will only cost you about $3 but your Xbox will need to be close to your computer. The WiFi adapter is about $50 and will allow you to use your Xbox 360 on Xbox Live in other rooms of your house.

I was going to buy an Xbox 360 wireless network adapter but im not sure if my Buffalo Router will connect to it. can anyone help


Just about any newer routers should work fine with the Xbox 360 wireless adapter. It you are worried about compatibility make sure you get the newest Xbox 360 Network adapter. It is the black one with two antennas. It will work with just about any network.

In regards to your wireless connection issue with your XBOX 360 do you have the wireless adaper connected to the XBOX. Note most XBOX 360's do not have a built in wireless adapter, some of the Elites do but most do not.

Hope this helps

You cannot use the netgear wi-fi adapter as the xbox 360 will not be able to detect it. I suggest buying the wi-fi adapter specifically manufactured for the xbox360
