I really want to get the Xbox live setup. However, I have DSL, and there is no phone jack near the TV, and the computer is in another room. So how can I make all this work?

Adapter



So it is $100 regardless of what I do? If I buy this gizmo, I still need the regular router right?

A regular wireless router, yes.

Note that 802.11g is backwards compatible with 802.11b, so you can get a fairly cheap wireless router. The "G" routers are considerably more expensive than "B" models.

[Edit] If you're really trying to save money, just get a bunch of Cat5 cable and run it up through the attic and back down to the Xbox. Probably cost you $10 or $15 for the cable.
