It's fine the connection is supposed to be a bit slower but I don't know I use a cable. I don't think it will make a major difference.

Its alright if you have a half decent wireless modem.

Seems to work fine for me ;)

It's good, just get your configuration right.

The M$ Wireless Adapter?

This topic has actually been discussed several times in the past.

I have one and it's been great to me and my other 360. No crashes or lag and I run 2 360's at the same time. Some people are skeptical about buying one, but it's actually a good investment. I bought one on eBay for $65.00 including S&H.

I don't know if it my router or configuration or what but mine (my brothers actually) is a nightmare! When running both our 360's simultaneously he has major lag,whereas I don't as I'm hard wired,and is disconnected frequently.I wouldn't advise you against buying one as I seriously think my cheap wireless router is to blame,I'm just telling you the problems we have.

I don't know, I've never had a problem with mine, i'm pretty much always connected, never get disconnected, download about the same as i would being hard wired and i never notice any lag, so I saw it as a great investment to me, helped clear out one more wire from my room :)

As long as you have decent parts in the entire chain (cable internet itself, modem, router) the wireless part will do fine.

It depends on your ISP and your modem, because you could buy any other wireless adapter and get the same effect. OXM had a pretty good review on them a while ago. I will probably get one when we finally set up a wireless network in my house.

it works great but when i used to have it in another upstairs bedroom it would disconnect maybe once an hour

i have no problems with mine although i do have 7mb broadband, but there is obviously a limit to how fast the wireless conection can go but even when downloading stuff on my pc i still dont get any lag online.
