Thanks!

If you want to go with a brand name unit that has a greater chance of being supported for years then try these linksys models.

This is the general purpose bridge that you plug any cat5 device (PC, XBOX, XBOX 360, PS2, etc..) into.

If you are on an older (less common) 802.11a network you will need something like this

It says for games but it will work with a PC as well.

If you don't need 802.11g (54mb) wireless bandwidth and just want to game online you can buy one of these

I suggest ordering online from

If you want to save a little money.

Do you mean actually into the existing ethernet port on a PC?

Ive never seen those before. If you are after cheap wireless conectivity, id suggest a USB wireless dongle.

They are called wireless access points, and many wireless routers have it as an option.  Look for wap in this listing: http://castle.pricewatch.com/s/search.asp?s=wireless+access+point.  You should choose the 802.11g capable models to provide higher speed.
