    I'm curious...did you spend 100 bucks on the Micro$oft 360 wireless adapter, or were you able to use a cheaper, 3rd party one?

    I actually would like to figure this out too. I am moving out of my house, which has a linksys router attatched to my mom's computer. In the new house, I will be using my iMac with an airport extreme basestation. The xbox 360 doesn't just connect like it does with the linksys? Because with the linksys, I just used xbox 360's "configure connection" and it worked right away!

    Mac since 7.5
    I have my Xbox connected to my AE wireless network via this Linksys adapter.
    Does anyone know if I can simply unplug it and then plug it into an Xbox 360 and get connected?
