I don't believe the device is bluetooth. I think thats why you'd have a problem otherwise. You may be able to check online for items that are... such as routers and look for adapters to attach to your xbox to make it accept it. Otherwise it won't work.

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!

Wireless router cannot connect to XBOX Live


I have a linksys 10/ 1000 card and a 2wire wirless router and had the same problem. You need to go to your control panel and double click the wireless network. Once you set it up you need to make sure that if you have a firewall that the xbox has permission to access the net. Also all wireless devices have a security measure some have WEP keys and others have passwords you need to find out what yours is.

Unable to get IP address on SMC2804WBRP-G


You need to setup security on the laptop/access point. Apparently it has been setup in the router.

Xbox 360 wireless connection


If you already have wireless router you will need something like this:

Or you can always buy a third party wireless device that is capable with Xbox 350.
