What you need:A high-speed Internet connection such as cableA router, gateway, or wireless access point (WAP) that is compatible with Xbox LIVE.An Xbox 360 Wireless Networking Adapter (original Xbox 360 console only)Instructions:On your console, go to My Xbox, and then select System Settings.Select Network Settings.Select the name of your wireless network. Enter your wireless network password.Select Yes if you are prompted to update your console software.When you successfully connect to Xbox LIVE, your screen will look like this:
you will need to go ito your modem/routers settinngs oen internet browser type 192.168.1.254 then go to wireless then custom services open the box then scroll down to the bottom and select box live the another screen comes up with a box in it open it an select the bottom one it will be your xbox
Try resetting your router and reconfiguring. Secondly try using a different wireless security mode that the 360 adapter supports. If the router is a linksys, that could be the problem. Linksys has a very common drop problem. I have found that D-Link has better integrity for wireless devices. Also try putting another device on the network via Wireless, if the same result, replace the router. Also, you can do a search on google for wireless router tweaks, to optimize the router for and xbox wireless connection. One more thing. be sure you force an ip address for the adapter in the settings area on the 360. That promises the same IP everytime it connects. Then go into your router configuration and forward the ports for xbox live, the wireless connection may not even be dropping, but a port problem with live while trying to authenticate your game system
The following ports must be available for Xbox Live to operate correctly: • UDP 88 • UDP 3074 • TCP 3074
