does anyone know if there are alternatives to the official xbox 360 wireless adapter? because it just plugs in to the xbox by USB and it seems like there would be pc ones that could be compatible that could be much cheaper then $100

any ideas or help?
thanks!

The difference is the software you get with it I think, which is specifically geared towards getting your Xbox connected to Xbox Live, not just connecting to another PC. An ordinary wireless adapter may connect to the internet through your router but what could you do without the official software?
You wouldn't have a display interface specific to the wireless options and other options available on the Xbox would you? And if you encountered any setup problems with a third-party adapter, Microsoft would not help you resolve them.

I would borrow a non-microsoft adapter if you can, just to establish how compatible it is with regard to the Xbox's capabilities before you buy one.
