Make sure you are using the xbox networking adapter. Some networking adapters may work on it but if you encountered any problems, xbox tech support won't be able to assist you with some troubleshooting since they don't support any product other than the xbox networking adapter.
To test the connection, go to the system area on your xbox live dashboard then go to network settings and select test xbox live connection.
If you pass on all test down to NAT then it means you are connected already and you can now enjoy playing online.
If you fail on the first part of the test which is Network Adapter or if it says not connected on Wireless Network then you need to perform some steps.
Get back to the network setting's area by pressing B on your controller and select restore to factory defaults. Doing this will restore the xbox live settings to default and you need run another test again which may allow you now to pass.
If you still fail on wireless network then it means that you need to set your console to wireless mode by going back to Network Settings and selecting the Edit Settings option.
If your other computers on the network are capable of surfing on the net then you might be blocked out from The Xbox live Microsoft : I'm not sure but maybe you could try using a USB to Ethernet or wireless network card instead of the internal card ?! It might help if they are blocking ppl by controlling their MAC address!
You need to sign up through your xbox or by calling 1-800-4-My-Xbox. You need your xbox to be connected to the internet either by plugging in the network jack in the back of the console, or buying a wireless network adapter and hooking it up to your local wireless network.
Basically i know its a rip off but if u wanna use wireless with the xbox 360 u need to buy the official xbox 360 wireless router which is about £60.There is another way if u dont use wireless u can connect the xbox 360 to a router or the phone line then go to your windows firewall and set it up manually.Hope this can help you .Joe stevenson
If you are looking to connect two XBox consoles together for offline play, the method can vary depending on the type of XBox you own.
For the original XBox, there should be two supported methods. The first allows you to directly connect two XBox consoles together using a "system link" or Cat 5 Ethernet crossover cable, while the second is to connect up to four XBox consoles using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub.
With the XBox 360, there should be three methods available. The first is to directly connect the two consoles using a traditional Ethernet cable (RJ45), the second allows up to 16 different XBox 360's to connect by using standard networking cables and an Ethernet hub, while the third uses either a wireless router or the XBox's built-in Ad-Hoc networking tools to make a connection.
If you are unsure how to set up the consoles using any of these methods, you should be able to find step-by-step instructions in the owner's manual for your XBox, or by simply visiting the support section of Microsoft's homepage.
I believe the X-Box does NOT have Wifi built in?
(sic)Surprisingly, the Xbox 360 doesn't have wireless networking built in. If you don?t fancy using the wired Ethernet method, you can invest in a wireless networking adapter. Microsoft has its own adapter specifically designed for the Xbox 360, but third-party Wifi-certified devices will work just as well.(sic) From the below site.
So that may be ya problem?
