    You mean you want to get wireless internet via 360 adapter? I don't think I'm understanding the sitation correctly.

    I searched pretty extensively for this a couple of months back. It's not possible, as of yet. The drivers simply don't exist, nor are there any drivers sufficeintly similar. The xbox 360 wireless adapter is in the same class as the wifi adapter that will be included in the "one laptop per child" hardware. Some believe that those drivers might be a starting point.

    The only thing I found was that the adapter is based on a Marvell chipset.
