Xbox 360 wireless adapter

Hi
ok this is the problem. My wireless adapter is not passing the IP test, but i noticed that if i removed the WEP security key from my router the adapter connects fine. so to resume this and make it clear

WEP-NOT ENABLE= wireless adpater gets IP from router

WEP- ENABLE=wireless adpater does not get IP from router

FYI- DHCP is enable on both scenarios

you need to assign a static ip address to each inside your router they are more than likely using the same ip address

SOURCE: how far away can my wireless G router be from my xbox adapter

The distance between your wireless-capable router or gateway and your Xbox 360 console, the construction of your home, the presence of other wireless devices (like cordless phones), and other sources of interference (like microwave ovens) can negatively affect the strength of a wireless signal.

I assume the wireless router is configured correctly and the PC can connect to the wireless router and the Internet.
Follow these instructions to configure the XBox.

  1. In the Xbox Dashboard, go to My Xbox and open System Settings.
  2. Select Network Settings, Configure Network.
  3. On the Basic Settings tab, select your wireless settings.
  4. Select the name (SSID) of your wireless network. If your router isn't broadcasting your network's name, select Specify Unlisted Network and enter the name.
  5. If your network has wireless security, enter your WEP or WPA key.
  6. Try to connect to Xbox LIVE again

Hi. You just need to configure your adapter. It is not broken, it just needs to be set up properly. For information on how to do this, please see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908877

Don't know my WEP key


Often times the WEP key is the serial number printed on your router. If that doesn't work, log into your router through your web browser (just type the router's IP address into the browser's address bar and then enter your username and password) and under Wireless Settings or Security Settings or something similar, you should be able to find the WEP key.

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!

What are the steps to hooking up your xbox 360 wireless network adapter


Hello

Plug the wireless USB adapter into the USB port on the back of the Xbox 360 console.

Turn on your Xbox 360 console.

The console will recognize the wireless adapter and will walk you thru the wireless network setup. Be sure to have your WEP key (if encryption is used) for your router before you start this process.

This adapter works well - I am using one and regularly play Modern Warfare 2 with multiple chat sessions. There is no noticable difference between my wired network connection and this wireless network connection.

Happy gaming!

My wireless has a WPA key and Abox is asking


  1. Plug in the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Adapter to one of the USB ports on the back of your Xbox 360.
  2. Turn on your Xbox 360 and navigate to "My Xbox" and then "System Settings."
  3. Go to "Network Settings" and then "Configure Network."
  4. Select the appropriate settings for the wireless network you will be connecting to on the "Basic Settings" tab.
  5. Enter the name of the SSID of the wireless network you will be connecting to. If the SSID is not broadcast, select "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter in the SSID of the network manually.
  6. Enter in the wireless security key (WEP or WPA) so that your Xbox 360 can access the network.
  7. Select "Test Xbox Live Connection" back on the "Network Settings" screen to verify that your Xbox 360 is now connected to the wireless network and ready for use.
Should work for either WEP or WPA

I got a new xbox 360, and i need to connect my xbox back


you need to go to your xbox settings and your network settings, find your network and put in the wep key for your router. If you don't know your wep key for your router, the easiest way to find it is to go on your computer, open a browser of some kind (e.g. internet explorer, firefox, safari etc.) and type in the ip address. The most standard ip address is 192.168.1.1 or something close to that. It should bring up the settings for your router and you can find the wep key usually under the wireless tab and then wireless security and your wep key should be right there! enter it into your xbox and have fun gaming. =)

Cannot connct xbox 360 wireless adaptor


Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

Wep address


Your wep adress? You mean your IP adress? Go to http://whatismyip.com/ and that number is your IP adress. Enter that manually, and your XBox should be connected.
