I need a Key code


When you initially configure the wireless interface in the router, you:
* set a SSID, a "name" for your wireless network,
* set an encryption-level. Hint: use 'WPA' or 'WPA2',
* set a password (or "key-code") for your network.

So, configure the router, and then use that SSID/password with your 802.11B wireless adapter to connect to your wireless network.

Wireless. I need to know a few things.
What is your wireless router set for? WEP or WPA?
Have you given your network an SSID?
Do you get a wireless Icon on your task bar near the clock?
Is the connection light blinking on the Wireless card (PCMCIA, right?)
Can you open the wireless driver?
If you right-click on the network ICON near the clock, can you open wireless networks? Have you tried?

Your wireless has to be set EXACTLY the same as the router. SSID with capitals in the same places. Same WPA key if you are using WPA. Use WPA2 if your router is set for this.
Same WEP key if you are using WEP.
Let me know

Having problems setting up my wireless networking adapter


What is the brand and model of your wireless router?

We need to know the settings (SSID, wireless security, security key/code) on the wireless router to match the settings on your xbox wireless adapter.

On your XBOX, go to System, then Network Settings, then select "Edit Settings".

Select the wireless network name or SSID of your wireless router. For the network mode, select Infrastructure. Select the security type if WPA or WEP and enter the Passphrase or WEP key.

Save the settings then select Test Xbox Live Connection.

I hope this works! Please take a moment to leave a comment if you find this solution helpful. Your feedback is important and very much appreciated. Good luck!

No power


The light on the adapter indicates if there is network activity.

Check in device manager if the adapter is properly installed. Right click my computer, then select properties. Go to the Hardware tab and click Device manager.

If there is a yellow exclamation point on the USB adapter then you may need to reinstall the Linksys adapter.

If the Linksys adapter is installed properly, then check the wireless network connections if it is connected.

To ensure that you are connected to your wireless network, you will need to know the settings on your wireless router or access-point. Take note of the wireless network name (SSID) and the wireless security and network key.

If you are using the Linksys Wireless Utility, go to Site survey, select your SSID then click connect. Type the network key if wireless security is enabled.

If you are using the default wireless connection on your computer, just right click the wireless network connection icon on the system tray (lower right conner of your screen, near the clock), then select view available wireless networks. Select your SSID, then click connect and type the network key (if wireless security is enabled).

Hope this helps! Good luck!

I have plugged in a wireless adapter for the 360 but...


A red steady light on the adapter means it is ready to be connected to a wireless network. If it fails to connect then the WPA key is not correct.

WPA automatically changes keys on a frequent basis for security purposes. So you need to take note of the SSID (wireless network name) and the Wireless security settings (WPA and passphrase) from the wireless access point/router.

Once you have the wireless network settings on the access-point/router, go to the System area to enter those settings.

If all settings are correct, exit the System area. Your console should now be connected to your wireless network.

Hope this helps! Good luck!

Cannot get wireless adapter to connect to wireless router


The key number is the passphrase on your router when you initially set it up. Usually you'll need to enter it when you set up a wireless router.

Configuring the usb


First, make sure that the device is working properly on the device manager of your computer. Then, set the wireless settings of the router to the wireless adapter. You can use the wireless utility built in to windows (XP and Vista) or the utility that came with your adapter to fix that.

Normally, the limited or no connectivity may mean that there is a wireless security set on your network and that the network key is set incorrectly. If you are using Vista or XP, try to remove the preferred networks and reconnect once again with the correct key.

Hope this helps
