In order to enjoy the benefits that come with being on a wireless network, you will first need to identify the Xbox 360 wireless adapter that is best suited for your gaming unit. This calls for you to understand the nature of the current wireless standard because some adapters may not be compatible with your existing network. In most cases, a dual band frequency adapter will work well with almost any network. Ultimately, the choice of the adapter is determined by the compatibility with the network service, so you need to know what type of network you'll be using.

To set up your adapter, you will need to turn off your Xbox console after which you will attach the adapter at the back. If you have Ethernet cables connected, you will need to remove them for the ease of connecting the adapter to the USB port. Having done that you will then unfold your wireless adapter's aerial before powering the Xbox 360 unit. You will then be required to follow the prompts that will appear on your screen in the form of a dashboard menu. Select the network settings option in order to be able to configure the device to the available network service.

It is however important to understand that while the Xbox 360 wireless adapter promises to improve your gaming capabilities, you can be sure of consuming a lot of bandwidth.
