Microsoft Gains FCC ApprovalMicrosoft has come one step closer to offering its wireless Xbox adapter for the Christmas buying season by gaining Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approval for the device on August 28. The chipset in the MN-740 wireless adapter appears to be supplied by Atheros Communications, possibly its 2.4GHz AR5002AP-G chip, which supports 802.11b/g. The device also features user-configurable 128-bit WEP (wired equivalent privacy) security. It will compete with other products on the market such as Linksys’s WGA54G Wireless-G game adapter. According to its quick start guide, users will be able to play multi-player games with either Microsoft’s own Xbox Live online game subscription service if the device is connected to a broadband Internet connection or users can use the device to create a wireless connection for System Link (console-to-console) play (requires two Xbox video game systems and Xbox System Link play certified games).
