So I want to get my Xbox online, I can think of three options to do this and I need some advice please.

1. Buying the official Microsoft Wireless Adapter.

2. Purchasing a really long ethernet cable (about 15-20m), going from my router to my Xbox.

3. Or buy one of these Powerline Network device things, one plugged in next to my router, the other next to my Xbox.

Now what I am looking for is the best setup for gaming, so I want as little lag as possible, an Open NAT and the best speeds available. I also would like to spend as little as possible.

These are my only options as my Xbox is located upstairs and my router is downstairs, moving things around isnt an option.

Any help or advice would be great, thanks.

I wonder if just buying a wireless router would be the best option and placing it upstairs next to the xbox and using a cable between xbox and router.

I mean, you're not going to get much of a slower speed cause its wireless.

Thats what I would try.

I would just go with the long ethernet cable. I've gone wireless on my Xbox 360 and PS3 and I've had problems with both. Once I went wired for both I've had little to no problems.
