I understand this can be a little confusing , especially if you have not done it before!! I can explain to you the steps , but it is a little tricky and I don''t want to completely confuse you!

With that being said , take a look at the article I posted below. It is directly from Microsoft and is a step by step guide for this , including pictures to make it easier. When you open that link scroll about half-way down to the section that says :

"How to connect an Xbox 360 to your wireless network"

There you will see all the info you need , along with the pictures I mentioned to make it easier for you!

I hope this helps , and if you need further help feel free to leave a comment with the issue and we can clear it up...

Ok you need to set DHCP OFF, go to Start>>RUN>>services.msc then scroll down until you find DHCP Client,. set to OFF & disable it. Reboot. Now login to router and ensure DHCP is ON. That is that problem sorted. So try that.

I think you need to register the MAC address of your xbox. Try to call your ISP or xbox people to register your xbox mac address so that you can use in wirelessly. They need to clone the mac address of your xbox so that when you need to use your router it wont have any problem connecting to the internet.

I keep getting dropped from xbox live with my wireless N router. Is this common? Is there a common setting I forgot to turn on?


Did you try moving the wireless adapter to a different location, possibly the front of the xbox to get a better signal. Make sure nothing is interfering with signal such as objects in the way or other obstructions to line of sight between the wireless router and the xbox. Try running xbox live on a wired connection to see if you have the same problems. If still have a problem then it is a ISP or xbox live issue and not your wireless adapater.

How can i get xbox live wirless working after buying the adapter. I have bought the xbox wirless adapter and i am having trouble getting wirless.


Okay, to connect to Xbox Live using Wireless Internet you will need this:

One Xbox Wireless connection unit, There are two types, the black and white versions. The black one is able to pick up the most diverse signals and has a higher potential for speed so I recommend that one.
You will also need, of course, a high speed internet source (modem) and a wireless router connected to the modem. When looking for wireless routers look for ones with marks claiming to be compatible with Xbox Live or a Windows OS. Those have been tested to work with Xbox.

Before trying to set up your Xbox Live, make sure your Router is set up with your computer, and set to be used as a wireless router. That's another tip all together but just follow your installation CD.

Okay so here we go!

First, Connect the wireless networking adapter to the back of your Xbox.
If you have a network cable plugged into your xbox, unplug it. Check to make sure the adapter's light is on.


Here's what the light's mean:
On the gray adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router, gateway or wireless access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

On the black adapter:
No light: It's not getting enough power( try plugging it another USB slot)
Green light: It is connected to a wireless router2_bing.gif, gateway or wireless access point.
Flashing green: The adapter is attempting to connect to a wireless router, gateway, or access point.
Red light: It is not connected, and is ready for configuration.
Flashing red: There is a malfunction. (try again, if the problem persists return it for a replacement)

Now the CONFIGURATION, the reason most of you are reading this:

Turn your Xbox on and go to "My Xbox"
Go to "System Settings"
Go to "Network Settings"
Go to "Configure Network"
On the basic settings tab select "Wireless mode"
Select "Scan for Networks"
Select your Wireless source.

NOTE: If your Network isn't listed you will have to manually enter it.
To do this select "Specify unlisted network"
You will need to enter your SSID
Then choose which security you used to set it up on your Computer (ie: WPA, WEP...) Then enter your security code. If there is no code then select "no security"

Your adapter should have a green light now.

Now go back to "Network Settings" and select "Test Xbox Live2_bing.gif Connection"

If it works your good to go!
