I tried to cut corners to get my Xbox to streamline Netflix movies by using my Samsung tongle but it did not work. I tried using my Oppo wireless bridge or the D-link wireless range booster. Neither worked.I found the price for a new Xbox 360 wireless adapter a bit prohibitive. So I reluctantly went ahead and ordered a fairly used one.I ordered it "like new" through one of Amazon's subsidiaries. It was $20.00 cheaper than the price of a new one.It arrived today and sure looks new. I initially had difficulty connecting it to my home network as I tried to do the configuration manually. A friend helped me with the setup and changed all my settings to automatic. At the snap of my finger, the adapter found my network and connected to it effortlessly and bingo, I am watching 187 via Netflix as I type.

The picture quality is HD and great. I am not sure if it is because of the Xbox 360 Elite or the Netgear N wireless router or my Samsung 52" B750 LCD TV that I have such crystal clear and crisp picture quality.The audio too is equally impressive. I have not noticed the freezes others have experienced. I was concerned that the adapter will not be compatible with my router as other reviewers had noted in other websites. Man, am I glad it works with my router.My connection speed is 54Mbps and can max up to 130Mbps. I do recommend this wireless adapter for Xbox live functions.It is a cheaper way to watch tons of DVDs if you do have the Xbox 360 console. Any other Netflix ready device will surfice. Check [...] for netflix ready devices.

Saying that it is a cheaper means of watching tons of DVDs is an understatement. I have downgraded my Netflix plan from 3 DVDS to 1 DVD with unlimited streaming. Bye- Bye to on demand and soon, my Blockbuster plan will be downgraded as I will review its relevance within the next 30 days.

I made the mistake of trying a non-Microsoft brand first, and I regretted it almost as soon as I read the instructions to it. I spent a massive amount of time trying to get it to work to no avail, and I'm definitely above average when it comes to tech so it was really frustrating. Thankfully I was able to return it to the store and then resumed trying to keep the 360 close to my router and used a long ethernet cord to keep myself online.

Eventually my wife and I grew our family a bit, and moved from a one-bedroom apartment to a 3-bedroom house. The router was now too far of a distance to use an ethernet cord. Thus, I went online and hoped for a better wireless adapter. I found this, saw it had great reviews, and purchased it. I am so very glad that I did.

The other device I had required a ton of things to do, finding IP addresses, converting things from hex, etc., and despite doing all of them at least ten times, it still didn't work. With this adapter, all I had to do was literally plug it in. It pulls a list of wireless networks nearby (after you go to network settings on your 360), then you put in your password (if you have one), and there it goes! What took me hours of trying to do with another adapter worked in a few minutes with this one.

My 360 is only about a room and a half's distance away from the router and the signal is usually pretty full. I have never lost connection due to the adapter, and it has yet to fail me in any other of it's functions.

It's easy to install and works great, so I definitely would highly recommend it!

Update: 4/9/12

Over a year later it still works great! I've still had no problems with it and am so glad I got it!

I ordered this product, and when it arrived, it did not work. It was not able to maintain any connection. I tested with my friend's official Microsoft equivalent product and had no problem, so I knew it wasn't my console or internet connection. Needless to say, I was very disappointed.

However, JacobParts had a very understanding return policy. I mailed the adapter back and they sent me a new one that works just fine. Yes, it cost me extra shipping to mail it back and I had to wait a week longer than I expected, but I still got a working adapter for less than one you would buy from Microsoft.

The wireless adapter works perfectly for xbox live. I have used it for about 2 weeks now and have had no problems. The connection has been fast and very reliable. I reccomend this to anybody who needs a wireless adapter for xbox.

This product is great! Before we got it, we would have to run a cord from the xbox in our living room to the motem in the kitchen. It sucked! Now, my boyfriend can play all day and there is no tripping over cords. It holds the wireless signal very well and we haven't had any problems with losing connection.

I definitly recommend this product!

Does what it says on the tin! Connection is steady for gaming and streaming, obviously cheaper then the more expensive newer model that supports more types of connection but from current experience not having any problems so far (perhaps HD streaming would be a noticeable diffence?) - worth purchasing.

This wireless adapter does not get the job done. It is in use in a room where iPods, laptops and smart phones all maintain a wifi connection to our household wireless router. But this adapter drops the connection if it even makes a connection at all. Learn from my mistake and don't buy this product.

This item works great. Simply plug into the back of your console, attach it using the clips, and connect to your wireless internet. Really that simple. Allows me to stream Netflix, ESPN, and play games with minimal lag and a stable connection. Great price and it works well.
