You can get what is called a Ethernet bridge.

Concur, they are the only real alternative. I sucked it up and bought the actual adapter for the XB360. The bridge and the cable connecting it are more points of failure and crap you'll have to troubleshoot. Although it is cheaper, I think you'll find good deals on the adapter on Ebay...in comparison to the cost of the console - it is not much

if you have a laptop, you can also share out your internet connection through your ethernet port, that's what I did with my Macbook for a while. Made for the most expensive wifi adapter I've ever seen!
