Can't do it. You either have to use their wireless network adapters or run it wired to Wi-Fi router.

or use a wireless ethernet bridge like i do.

much cheaper than an official wi-fi adapter, but just as effective.

im not sure if the device you're talking about is one of those, an 'adapter' would generally be sued to adapt something, so im not sure what you need. but a wirelss bridge works fine.

well from the looks of it a wireless bridge cost as much as the adapter.i dont have any wireless devices just my router,the thing im talking about is a wireless n dongle/adapter the thing you use when you computer doesent have a wirless pci card. it goes in the usb port i know you can hook your 360 up to a laptop to make it wirless seen it done on youtube..ps im trying to use my routers wireless n ability...

you can bridge a conection.

here in NZ an official xbox wirelss adapter costs 188 dollars, while a wireless ethernet bridge costs 40.

definetly not the same.

but a standard usb wireless adapter wont work, since its usb iut needs to be supported by the OS. the xbox wont, since they want you to pay extra for propriatary hardware.

you can either hook your xbox up to your pc via ethernet, and (assuming your pc has wirelss capabilities) brisge the two connections.

or get an ethernet bridge. here in NZ they are most definetly cheaper than official adapters.
