Going wireless with Xbox 360 is not difficult! Just get Xbox 360 wireless adapter and connect your Xbox 360 to Internet wirelessly for Xbox Live play or video/music streaming.

This official Xbox 360 wireless adapter supports 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g wireless standards.

As usual, just go to the System area of the Xbox Dashboard to enter your wireless network settings by keying SSID and wireless encryption key. The Xbox 360 should connect to your wireless network after that if all wireless settings are correct. The performance of this wireless adapter is good, but it’s a bit pricy.

Also as I know the following Xbox 360 wireless adapter MN-740 only support WEP encryption, so it’s not a good choice to have if you care about wireless security. Good point about this product is its much cheaper price. You can consider to get one if there is no other computers connect to your wireless network except Xbox 360.
