Interesting problem..

try this settings (this is what I got on my computer and I don't have this problem.. I hope it helps)

1. go start>network places but right click on it and go into properties
2. the network connections page opens up, select the wireless network adapter right clicking on it and go into properties.
3. select the tab wireless networks and look for the ssid (name of the access point you want to connect to), select it and click on properties
4 the association tab should be the first one.. put a check mark next to "connect even if this network is not broadcasting"
5 in the "wireless network key" area on network authentication select "open" on data encryption select "WEP" and under network key, enter the network key you configured in your access point (not the passphrase but the network key!!)
6. key index advance should be 1.
7. unselect (if selected) next to "the key is provided for me automatically"
8. click ok (if you don't is like you did nothing).

and test and see if it gets your concern fixed...

good luck!!!

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!

The light stays red, won't connect.


If the light on adapter is red it means that it cannot establish a wireless connection.

We need to get the wireless settings on the Belkin router and match those settings to your xbox adapter.

Use a computer to access the setup page of the belkin router. In a web browser's address bar type: 192.168.2.1.

It will prompt you to enter your router password. By default, just leave the password blank.

Once you are on the setup page, go to the wireless tab. Take note of the SSID, Broadcast SSID should be enabled.

Then Under Wireless go to Security. Take note of the Security Mode (WPA or WEP), Passphrase or WEP key.

Now, on your XBOX, go to System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

Select the SSID. Select Infrastructure for the Network mode. 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!

1) Wireless Switch of the Laptop is off (Wifi is Off)

or Fn+F2 might turn the switch ON and OFF

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
