Question about NetGear WGR614 Router

Cannot change wireless settings on XBOX 360

I have just bought a wireless adapter for an XBOX 360 and it will not connect to the WIFI signal in the house (Netgear wgr614 router). The problem is exacerbated by the fact that the XBOX wireless settings are 'greyed out' on the screen and the device won't even let me change them to add things like SSID's and stuff. The red light comes on the adapter when it is plugged in, so it is getting power to it. The XBOX live link worked fine when it was using ethernet cable. I have unplugged the ethernet cable. Please help - this is infuriating.
Thanks

    I have the exact same problem. Spent 1 1/2 hours on the phone with tech support for ebox but they told me it was a router problem. I finally tried it without any security and it works fine. Once I put on the security, xbox doesn't even see the network.

I was having trouble getting a signal on my xbox 360 so i unplugged and plugged my router back in, this caused it to not put out a wireless signal, it does produce internet through an Ethernet cord, but...


It can take up to 2-5 minutes before your router starts broadcasting a wireless signal and for the xbox to be able to connect to it, turn your xbox off and the router wait a minute then turn your wireless router on, wait a further few minutes and turn your xbox on and try using the wireless connection

Having trouble connecting Xbox live. Have wireless router and wireless Xbox 360 adapter. Figured out where adapter goes. Now I'm stuck.


Is the router already setup and working? Do you have anything else that successfully connects to it "wirelessly", like a laptop or desktop or smartphone? If the answer is yes, here's how to setup the 360 to connect to your router:

1. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."
2. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.
3. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)
4. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead.
5. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option.
Tips: Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.
What You Need: Active Xbox Live subscription (to access services)

My xbox 360 says im connected to xbox live checked network setings and it says xb ox live is up and running...however when i try to play need for speed online..it says xbox live not working functionally?...


Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings." Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.) Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP. Save your settings and verify the network is functional. On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live. On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.

Xbox live on netopia router


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!

I am having problems with my dsl router


id say yes it can be done by folowing these steps on both xboxes
1. Make sure your wireless router is correctly connected to your Internet access and is broadcasting the wireless signal.
  • Step 2 Connect the Xbox 360 console to a Microsoft-manufactured WiFi adapter with a USB connection. This is different from an older Xbox console, which required an ethernet connection.
  • Step 3 Turn on the console and navigate to the Wireless Settings menu. Go to "System - Network Settings" and then finally to "Edit Settings."
  • Step 4 Configure the console's SSID to match that of the router. The SSID will be pre-selected and appear on the Xbox's display if the router is set to broadcast the SSID. Go to "Specify Unlisted Network" and enter the SSID.
  • Step 5 Set the Network Mode to "Infrastructure."
  • Step 6 Set the security of the Xbox 360 to match the router's security. Set the console to WEP or WPA encryption, whichever one the router uses, and enter the router's encryption key.
  • Step 7 Save all your settings after configuring them. Confirm that the console is connected to the network by going to the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option. This will tell you if your wireless connection is working.

    Att 2wire wireless and dlink


    the only thing you need for connecting 360 to wireless is an Internet connection, an 802.11G wireless router, and a wifi adapter that connects to your 360. They have these at walmart or any gaming store. I suggest giving your 2-Wire back to ATT! NOT QUALITY. Especially for gaming.
    I myself prefer my box to be hard wired as lag is far less. BUT..for wifi
    Get a Linksys Router and XBox brand wifi adapter for 360. Also google xbox connect. Instead of paying for LIVE
