My wireless XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I test XBOX LIVE

I have a Linksys WRT160N wireless router that I'm trying to connect with my XBOX 360 Live. The XBOX 360 says ''not connected'' when I initiate ''Test XBOX Live'' I have set up the router with my PC using the enclosed installation disc provided with the router. My PC works fine connected to the router. I use Comcast as my ISP.

Sort of embarrassing to say, but my son did not use uppercase letters when entering the router security key in the XBOX360.

Hi,
in this case you need to do a port forwarding,which is something like opening the specific ports on router so that xbox will communicate with internet
for that we need to know the ip address of xbox and port numbers for xbox.contact microsoft for knowing the port numbers and their range,so we can do a port forwarding on your router

Cant connect Xbox 360 to this wireless router


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.

I cannot connect to my xbox 360 to my linksys wrt160n router. i have a xbox pelican adapter but the last time I tried to connect I get a DNS error


Hi

you simply need to open port number : 3074 and 81 on the router with TCP/UDP mode with a defined ip add that you put statically on the XBOX and it will definately connect with the router on the internet.

Thanks

How do i change my NAT connection from moderate to open


This one is simple. Find the IP address that your Xbox is assigned by your router, then put it into the DMZ. This also goes for PS3 users who are having trouble with internet access.

I am using a linksys wireless g gaming router connected to my xbox 360 and I have a belkin n wireless router connected to my computer. I cannot connect to xbox live, any help


Does the n router have the B/G radios enabled? You have to have G communicate with G. Secondly, do you have the routers configured in such a way they can bridge? If you can't bridge them wirelessly or connect them physically they won't communicate. If this is off base there are also ports that need to be open for the XBOX to connect to XBOX live and this complicates testing, so test on a normal PC with web or ping first.

Network connection failed when trying to connect to xbox live


You may want to try the following:

Use a different ethernet cable.
Reset the router and xbox by powering them down for at least a minute.
Run the connection wizard under Xbox Live.
If the test passes you should be connected to the web.
If not you might have a problem with either the router or the xbox.

Problem using XBOX 360 Live and Linksys WRT160N


You need to reconfigure the wireless settings of your xbox. First, verify if you xbox can connect online by using ethernet cable. If it works that way, the only thing that you need to reconfigure is the wireless settings of the xbox. Make sure you have the same SSID and encryption key with the new router.
