Although this adaptor is now particularly outdated and thus, is not available in shops anymore: it is a reminder that old technology can still work.
The adaptor is quite small - measuring about the same as a pack of cigarettes - it can easily be tucked away or left out without attracting attention to itself.
Setup of the device is relatively easy. All you do it plug it into a computer and use the software to configure which network to join. The next time you plug it in, no matter what device you plug it into, it will search and join the configured network. Usefully, it has several channels which can be configured for different networks. This means you can pre-configure different networks and select the network available at the time.
The device is very sturdy and has survived several: squishes, drops and knocks.
The device is not only for games consoles, but for anything with an ethernet socket. Note that on a PC the age of the device will show through while downloading large files.
Lag-free head-to-head or Internet gaming, without stringing wires! The Wireless-B Game Adapter gives any wired-Ethernet-equipped game console wireless connection capabilities. The Game Adapter can be used in two different ways. If you have an existing home wireless network with a cable or DSL Internet connection, the Game Adapter lets your PlayStation 2, Xbox or GameCube attach to the network so you can get into online games without running wires to the game room. Or, use a pair of Game Adapters to form a "cable-less cable" between two game consoles for head-to-head gaming - in the same room, or all the way across the house.
It's completely driver-free, so there's no software-installation hassle, and it works on any platform. And the innovative Channel Selector Button with LED display makes wireless network configuration into child's play. If you're using two Game Adapters, just press their Channel Selector Buttons until the channel numbers match, and you're connected. To connect to an existing wireless network, press the Button to select Infrastructure mode. If your setup's a little different, there's an easy-to-use PC-based Setup Wizard to guide you through. Then just plug the Adapter into your game box, and go.
The Wireless-B Gaming Adapter provides lag-free gaming with communication speeds up to 11Mbps. So spend your time gaming, not stringing wires, with the Linksys Wireless-B Gaming Adapter.
