Let you router allocate the ip addresses manually by enabling DHCP and restart the router,and remove the usb adapter from the usb port and reconnect it, but when you right click on the taskbar on the little pc icons for your connection click enable WZC windows wireless Zero configuration as this will dissable the software you got with the usb adapter and hopefully make the connection more stable, but ensure you have a strong signal.

What is the difference between an adapter and router?


A router is a device that normally will be connected to the modem which gets the internet connection from the modem & gives out a wireless signal.

An adapter is a device that will be connected to the computer. This is a wireless receiver which receives the wireless signal from the wireless router & connectes to internet.

The adaptet seems to be conected but dont have access to internet.

it maybe a firewall blocking access or the secruity code 1) disable the firewall and see if it now connects 2) log into the router and goto the wireless section and remove the secruity now see if that will connect
a useful tool to use if you can copy onto the PC this will detect all the networks broadcasting - so you can now see if the adapter will detect your wireless network

Wireless security to xbox

assuming you mean xbox360, there should be a seperate menu for wireless connections in the network settings, as when it finds the signal it then asks for the keycode security number, but as far as i know the old xbox doesnt support wireless.
