Wireless Adapter or Wall Ethernet Kit?


Dec 25, 2009
Recently, I moved my Xbox 360 to a different area of my house. It has always been on a wireless connection using the standard Wireless-G Adapter that Microsoft sells for a fortune. The wireless router I am using is a Zonet ZSR4154WE that is advertised as Draft 4.0 Wireless N and has a maximum speed of 150 Mbps. The problem I am facing now is that I am not picking up a wireless signal in the new portion of my house. I was planning on buying the new "Xbox 360 Wireless N Adapter" to see if that allowed me to connect. As I was looking into that I ran across some Netgear Wall Outlet Ethernet Kits. The one in particular I was looking at was the XEB1004-100NAS. I was curious about what you guys thought would be the best choice.

For gaming, the power wiring ethernet adapter may give you the speed and reliability you need -- if it works in your home!!

Those who have success with this technology are very happy with the performance -- but I recently tested out a cheap system and was plagued by noise on audio equipment (as you might expect) AND had a very slow connection.

I think if I were you I'd try it out on the understanding with the retailer that you would return it if the above problems occurred in your home.
