Hi, If your newer usb wireless adaptor does not have the same settings as your router this is the problem you have. First make sure you have installed the cd software that came with the usb adaptor without it plugged in. After that is complete make sure the wireless adaptor is seen by the computer it is attached to. Then you need to open the settings of the usb adaptor and set it up same as your router's settings. This includes the WEP security password if you use it.
You need to check the settings on the wireless adaptor to make sure it is the same as the new router. If you had set the old router with a password, then you need to set the new one the same way. If the new router is not set with a password and the connection is open and not secured, then you need to change the settings of the computer wireless adaptor.
Hi, did you provide the network key/password when you setup the wireless conection on your computer?
Is it detecting your wireless router (you should see your SSID or network name) when you click on your wireless icon (in the taskbar) and chose "show wireless connections".
If you can acess to your router via it's configuration page(type the router's default IP address in your browser) you can go check the settings and change the key/passphrase if you dont remember it.
If all of this is not working, you can also start from stratch. Reset the router to factory settings (check your manual) then reconfigure it the way you want, put the new infos in your wireless network connections properties and try again.
let me know with more specific details if you still cant do it
Connection and signal strength depends upon the router. Just go through the settings on the wireless router, try changing the wireless channels.And also change the wireless mode on the router to 802.11g.This should be the compatible mode for your wireless adapter. to do this first connect the router with the help of an ethernet cable .Please follow the below steps:
1)Using your Internet browser, you can access the Router’s Web-Based
Advanced User Interface. In your browser, type “192.168.2.1” (you do
not need to type in anything else such as “http://” or “www”). Then
press the “Enter” key.
You will see the Router’s home page in your browser window. The
home page is visible to any user who wants to see it. To make any
changes to the Router’s settings, you have to log in. Clicking the
“Login” button or clicking on any one of the links on the home page
will take you to the login screen. The Router ships with no password
entered. In the login screen, leave the password blank and click the
“Submit” button to log in.
Clicking on the header of the “Wireless” tab will take you to the
“Wireless” header page. From this page, the Router’s wireless radio
can be enabled or disabled (the default setting is enabled). Under the
“Wireless” tab, there are links that allow you to make changes to the
wireless network settings.
Your Router can operate in three different wireless modes:
“g and b”, “g only”, and “b only”.
Change the wireless channel to 9 or 11
Click on save changes once you have done this
This should work,if it doesnt work let us know the exact problem in detail.

if it is a little bit also helpful pls.rate this soultion for me pls.....
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.
