    hi webdevil tried what u said but to no avail,

    was looking through all the wireless router settings but not sure what it all means,

    security type has WEP,WPA/WPA2,WPA-PSK/WPA2-/PSK

    security options has SHARED KEY ,AUTO , OPEN SYSTEM

    wep key has HEXADECIMAL,ASCII

    ive tried all that i can think of changing all settings and also putting back to factory resest and starting all over again but same thing .. it just wont connect.

    also have checked SSID all appears ok

    my only other way of thinking is that the ip addresses may be wrong ..

    LAN and WIRELESS i.p are the same ,

    WAN i.p is different

    LAN SUBNET 255.255.255.0

    WAN 255.255.252.0

    went back to the shop today where i purchased the router and the guy told me to try another ip address in the xbox adaptor which i did but again no connection.

    maybe you could assist me with the right way in setting up the ip addressess if poss... many thanks ...john

Your XBOX 360 adapter should automatically be assigned an address by the router's DHCP server. I think you may be having a problem with your wireless configuration. Check the wireless settings on your router to confirm that it is indeed setup for WEP. If it is setup for WEP on bothe the router and the XBOX and the key is typed in correctly on the XBOX it should work. If it still doesn't however, disable the wireless security on your router, then restart your XBOX and see if it will connect without WEP. Many devices will have problems over WEP and not connect at all. If it connects fine with no security enabled then we will know that was the problem and I would sugest changing the security to WPA.

    OK. For troubleshooting purposes, disable any wireless security on the router.

    You mentioned that the IP addresses may be wrong, and that the game shop suggested you change it? This part might be part of the problem since your router is responsible for setting up the address of your XBOX automatically. The wireless connection on your XBOX should be set to Auto/DHCP and you shouldn't be able to change the IP if it correctly setup for auto.

    When you test your connection on the XBOX, which tests are successful? Are you able to access the internet on the PC you are connecting wirelessly?

Connecting a tp link wireless usb adapter to xbox 360


It is not possible to use generic usb wireless adapters with the Xbox or Xbox 360 game console. By 8246b47.jpgJohn Anderson Jun 20, 2012
The post John Anderson is correct that this would not work with a XBOX device. These are intended for and installed on computers (laptop or desktop) with which you would need to install drivers for it on. There is supported drivers that will allow the installation of this device into either a XBOX or PlayStation gaming console.

There appears to be some interference from external sources. Check if:
  • Your router is near anything that can give any microwave radiation
  • Your router is anywhere near a freezer/refrigerator
  • Your router is near any device that gives off any interference
You might need to boost the signal in the router. Try using the device on a computer that is closer to the router and check if the fluctuations still occur. If they do you might have a faulty adapter and you may have to return/replace it.

i have used a similar adapter on windows 7 as well as on ubuntu 10.04 (linux), and it detects it upon restart without any external drivers.

try on a system with any of these to confirm that the adapter is good. this could be a hardware fault.

also, try changing the card slot as there could be a problem with the slot.

if it works fine on these, then make sure you are using the correct drivers (the ones exactly for this device and not for another similar device)

What is network adapter mean


A network adaptor is an interface device that allows your PC to communicate with other computers and the internet. There are wireless and wired adaptors.

Wireless adaptors usually connect your PC to the network through a wireless router and modem. Wired adaptors (also known as ethernet adaptors) connect your PC to another computer, a router or a modem using a cable.
