I prefer use a bridge because it is very easy to set up (just the wifi password) and it is very cheap.
Any WiFi module are much more expensive than a WiFi bridge and they basically do the same job
Xbee are really cool but difficult to set up and very expensive

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Seems like a Ethernet to WiFi bridge is the easiest solution, albeit a little bulky relative to other solutions. But for my purposes, it will work fine for now. I wanted WiFi connectivity with as little work as possible for this application, but I'm sure I will mess around with other solutions as well in the future, specifically the Wixel. Thanks again.
I like the IOGear GWU627 WiFi Adapter, about $35 and roughly the same size as the netduino Plus.

I got the TP-Link TLWR702N. It worked OK with the N+2 but not with the N+1. I discovered whilst trying to snoop the dhcp traffic between the N+1 and the TP-Link that having a hub between the pair resulted in the N+1 working!. I thought may be some sort of voltage issue but the ethernet voltage levels are only +-2.5v.
