    You could use a wireless bridge dongle (Cat5 to wireless), or as you suggest run a crossover to your pc and bridge it to wireless. For the price i'd rather run a wire!

    Your usb netgear wireless adapter wont work, the other way will or as Speedo says a wireless bridge dongle. The other alternative is to use a wireless router and use that to bridge the connection. I use a WRT54GS for exactly this purpose, both my media centre & 360 are connected to the router which then connects wirelessly to the main router.
