XBox Wireless Adapter MN-740 Update

It is stunningly NOT OBVIOUS from Microsoft's Web Site, but if you want to flash the firmware on your XBox Wireless Adapter MN-740, you need to download the Microsoft Broadband Networking super-update and it will find the adapter on your network automatically.

If you've flashed it before with the stand-alone updater that was specific to this adapter, you'll notice that this procedure is different and a little obtuse. However, it does work well.

Did they finally add WPA to the XBox wireless adapter? That's the one device holding me back from WPA at this point.

Sorry for the wildly off topic post, but I found your blog through the NeighBlog map. Thanks for the Virtual PC/Office, works great!

I opted for a second Linksys router running the Sveasoft firmware and a WDS link between the two routers. The linksys was cheaper then the xbox adapter by about half, it is able to do WEP/WPA and it gives better wireless coverage.
