360 Wireless N Adapter

Here's an easy way to upgrade your PS3/360 wireless…get a cheap wireless router compatible with any of the Linux router distributions like Tomato/DD-WRT.  Flash the firmware with that, and configure the router to act as a bridge.  You will also need to enter the security details for your wireless LAN.

Plug it into your console and it should just work.  (use a network cable to connect the "bridge" to the console).

I've seen cheap N routers for less than 40$, it's a lot cheaper way to go than any sort of dongle.

there are some ethernet to N adapters you plug into consoles (since USB ones won't work) which would be even easier (I believe they have a USB port built in so you can configure the connection on a PC first, then plug-and-play on the console). The PS3 will recognize it as a wired connection as well. I believe Linksys makes one and I'm sure others will follow suit

This is indeed true.  I'm actually in posession of such a device and it does work perfectly.  I use it for another device in my media center, but I tested it out on my PS3 for kicks and it works.  It certainly is an option, and it's one I'd imagine I'll be forced to make for my PS3 eventually.  I like to steer clear of devices like these in general, I prefer to keep it all first party so when I have issues I know when to call.  God knows I had fits getting my 360 to connect to my Linksys router (apparently 360s, UPnP and Linksys don't mix well).  Each company would blame the other.  Hell I even had the same issue with my Westinghouse HDTV and the PS3 for a long time (perhaps a year after launch).  I was completely unable to do HDMI.  It was a handshaking issue, both sides blamed the other.  It wasn't a HUGE deal because I could use a HDMI to DVI dongle ($5 on eBay) to fix the issue while I waited for a fix.  Now thankfully the HDMI works more or less by itself.  Occasionally I'll still have issues with the sound crackling, I have to get up to unplug and reconnect the HDMI to fix it.  It's for reasons like that I'll always stick to the first party stuff.

Is N really needed? If you are doing a short distance wireless I don\'t think you will see any improvement with speed. I know my laptop wireless/wired is the same speed. i can only see a benefit if you are having signal strength issues.
