  1. A couple weeks back, Microsoft confirmed the existence its Xbox 360 802.11n adapter, but provided no official word on the price or availability. A listing on GameStop's website has revealed that the updated Wi-Fi dongle will ship on November 3 of this year and cost $99.99 -- which lines up earlier pricing rumors.

    Nice to see it's as over priced as the original.

    They must be smoking something over at MS.

    Even wireless 'n' still can't beat the price to performance of a 10' $6.99 CAT5 cable. It's still for foo's who like to throw away cash on an easy problem.

    Overpriced. I'm using Ethernet over power with my 360.

    Yeah for GameStop, Power to the Gamers, and charging the same price for old technology (that should be cut in price even further.....

    @burty117....

    Excellent point! Where is the fix for that issue? In another post I pointed this out regarding my Xbox 360's issue with not being able to download updates because of the security on my N Draft LinkSys router. I had to change it back to WEP to get the updates.

    So I have been waiting, but I guess I will now just run a Cat5 and reconfigure my router back to WPA2.
