    Hi guys,

    Can anyone recommend a decent wireless router for use with xbox live and NTL 750k cable modem? Also, being a bit stupid... what's the name of the gizmo that I will need to plug into the back of the xbox so that it can talk to the router? Is it simply a wireless adapter and if so, are these things all fairly compatable with each other?

    Many thanks!

    Linksys 54g Wireless router and Linksys 54g wireless gaming point. Amazon is about as cheap as you will get. Around £100 for both. Its worth getting decent kit, easier to setup.

    Ditto above.
    Linksys kit is pretty good and more importantly easy to setup.

    Having tried the cheapo route before getting the proper kit (In fairness I was told) another benefit of getting Linksys is that they give proper telephone support. So when I couldnt get the wireless access point to talk to the router they were able to help me.

    This is really important even if you have a basic understaning of networking as it can be a bit of a fiddle getting live working wireless or so I found.
