Default Wireless Xbox 360

I know they make a xbox wireless thing but its $100 and I dont want to spend that. I already have a linksys wireless that I am not using right now. I was wondering if anyone knew if I can run that program on the 360. And if it would work with it and what not.
Thanks
Adam

I believe you could use the wirless Linksys, but you have to plug into the box via USB.

I would say give it a try and see what happens.

Dude,. hard wire it. Unlike hard wire, you don't have bandwidth with wireless. And its more susceptible(sp) to outside interference, ie sunspot cycles, cordless phones, cell phones, or basically anything electrical.
Basically, you will LAG less.

I have wireless internet and phones and although I dont have an Xbox 360, I have no lag or internet interfearance at all. Try it both ways to find out.

I have it hardwired now but I have to disconnect it in order to use the internet on my computer. I already have the wireless set from when I lived at home with my parents so that is why I want to use that. What I guess I am really asking is if the 360 will run the CD for setup of the wireless?

Found a review for the Xbox wireless adapter.

Quote:
Of course you can use any other existing wireless bridge or even use the built-in Ethernet port found in the Xbox 360, but you won’t be able to enjoy the unique functionality found in Xbox 360 wireless networking adapter.
